Olympic Gold medalist Keshia Baker visited Coeur d'Alene Elementary in Venice on Monday to promote health and exercise and draw attention to fundraising efforts for a new track and field. 

Coeur D’Alene is currently 8th out of thousands of schools in a nationwide competition to win funding from The Clorox Company’s Power A Bright Future grant program. 

Grants will be given based upon votes submitted online and by text – and anyone is eligible to vote for a school.  If selected, Coeur D’Alene will be able to replace a track and field that is the center of campus life and yet so desperately needs updating. 

To vote, visit www.PowerABrightFuture.com and vote for Coeur d'Alene Avenue School. You can also text 1602pbf to the number 95248. Do both every day until 12/19/2012!
