Charity Partner:


"Shocker Fitness" is an effort by Wichita State University Track & Field Head Coach Steve Rainbolt (coach bolt) to provide a community exercise program for the Wichita area. His idea is patterned after a similar program in Lawrence, KS called Dog Days Fitness. "coach bolt" went and visited a Dog Days morning session and thought this would be a great way to bring together the community of Wichita and help raise money for Shocker Track & Field.
