J.P. Mascaro & Sons assists GNPAL Track Team
with their Junior Olympics plans

GNPAL Track’s Post-season team.

The GNPAL track team has had a successful track program over the years with many of their athletes qualifying for post season competitions.  Some have even qualified for the Junior Olympics in years past, but due to the costs involved, they have been unable to attend.

This year, the team will be going Eastern University in Detroit for the first round of the Junior Olympics in late July.  J.P. Mascaro & Sons is donating $10,000 to help with the expenses.  Pat Mascaro is asking other area businesses to match their donation to cover the costs.
