New Mexico Teen Selected to Compete

Always On

Thoreau High sophomore Deshaun Garcia picked up discus, shot and javelin for the first time last year. 

After an impressive season, he was selected to compete in the Down Under Sports Track and Field Competition in Australia this summer, but the trip won’t be cheap. 

His family is unable to afford a passport, let alone a plane ticket, so he’s asking for your help getting there. 

The deadline for Deshaun to register is May 1.
