SNYDER, N.Y. (WKBW-TV) — Pete and Kelsey Gratien came up with what may be the most fun reason to get outside. The couple started Snyder Youth Track and Field club.

With three young children of their own and a background in running, they put together a program for kids ages three to ten.

Kelsey says "there are not a lot of track programs around, I think especially for the field events, there aren't a lot of those and those are the kinds of things you can get scholarships for."

Pete coaches cross country and track at Daemen College. He says they were surprised at the response adding "there was a lot of demand in a short amount of time which we weren't prepared for but we made it happen."
