Track Club Car Wash a Success


Apopka Fire and Police Departments help out

The Florida Elite Track Club held a car wash fund raiser on Saturday morning at the McDonalds Office Parking lot across from the Main Street McDonalds in Apopka. And with help from the Apopka Fire and Police Departments, the club raised over $600.

Three Apopka sisters qualified to run in the 2016 AAU Junior Olympics, which will be held in Houston later this month.

Scott Sisters 2016 Junior OlympicsArbriel Scott is 11 years old. For the past 4 years, Arbriel has been ranked in the top 5 in the nation in her running events. This year she is currently ranked in the top 3 of her 3 events. She competes in the 800m, 1500m and 4x400m relay.

But Arbriel does not run by herself. Her 9-year-old younger sister, Abrianna Perkins, is the 2015 USA National 800m champion.

Her 10-year-old sister, Jamiya Scott, is also a runner.

Arbriel and her sisters have set some lofty goals.

"I know that we have a once in a lifetime opportunity," says Arbriel. "Our goal is to be the first three sisters to compete on the same high school team, college team, and run in the Olympics together, I know that it starts here."Car wash AFD

We are pleased to support the girls in their quest to raise funds and help make their goals and dreams come true.”

Arbriel and her sisters run with the Florida Elite Track Club.
