Running Faster, Jumping Higher, Throwing Farther
The Silver Cheetahs are Committed to Community Service!
The Savannah Chatham Silver Cheetahs is a 501 © (3) Track & Field Club with athletes who compete year round within the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU). The team is comprised of several athletes who have attained National Junior Olympic Status by competing and finishing within the top eight in the nation, in a variety of running and field events.
Our stellar athletes are also academic scholars who achieve high honor roll, honor roll and excellent conduct within their respective grade levels.
The community has been very supportive of the Silver Cheetahs over the years, and so it is an honor and privilege for the team to give back. We have athletes who volunteer in many ways:
Ø Older Cheetah athletes offer Tutorial Services at Gadsden Elementary
Ø Cheetahs volunteer at the Delaware and Eastside Centers
Ø Cheetahs work the concession stands at Delaware during the City of Savannah’s Basketball Tournament each Winter
Ø Older Cheetah athletes volunteer at the City of Savannah’s Track Meet hosted by the Leisure Services Bureau
Ø The Cheetahs have created a team on State Farm’s website as a part of the 50 Million Pounds Challenge spearheaded by Dr. Ian Smith to assist Americans with physical fitness and weight loss
Ø The Cheetahs are a part of the Mayor’s Healthy Savannah 2012 Initiative to engage the community into living healthier lifestyles
Ø Each year the Cheetahs host a county-wide track meet for Savannah and surrounding areas to join in a day of healthy competition as they continue their fight against childhood obesity
Listed above are just a few of the team’s community service activities. By instilling the importance of helping others to the Cheetah athletes, the Parents, Coaches and Administrative Staff can feel confident that the team’s efforts will continue to foster strong community ties.
