Crozer-Chester Medical Center nurses Joy Oakey, RN and Gina Lanier, RN were recently honored at this year’s Mid-Atlantic Association Track and Field luncheon. Oakey (center) won Co-MVP Track and Field Athlete of the Year (female; long and middle distances) and Lanier (right) won an award for Excellence in Track and Field (throws).
Both women have won several national championships in track and field. Kyle Lanier (left), a nationally certified personal trainer at the Chester Senior Center, also picked up an award for Excellence in Track and Field along with his many national titles in middle and long distances.
These athletes are members of the TNT (Today NOT Tomorrow) International Racing Club that is sponsored, in large part, by the Chester Senior Center that helped TNT become the 2010 Outstanding Club of Year, triumphing over 300 track clubs in four states (PA, NJ, DE and MD) for youth and adults.
TNT Club President Kyle Lanier said, “If it wasn’t for the encouraging words from our communities we live and work in, TNT International Racing Club wouldn’t have been Number One.”
The next big event is the Master’s Indoor Track and Field National Championships in Albuquerque, NM, March 4th-6th.
