That’s My Girl!

If this works properly, the video is a NBC-2 news story on Arielle participating with her high school track team. Florida, like many states, does not have a program for disabled athletes. We would like to see that change.

Charlotte High School was the first school to allow Arielle to race on a track with able bodied athletes. They took a stand and did what they felt was right despite possible consequences from the FHSAA. (Florida High School Athletic Association) I believe it was a first in high school athletic history in Florida. (at least in this area) Island Coast High School followed their example and they were the second high school to allow Arielle on the track with runners.
