Let David Compete in XC

831 Signatures Goal: 2,500

UPDATE: Aug 3, 2013
New York State Supreme Court Justice John L. Michalski’s ruling exempts Gorczynski from a state age restriction. David can run in the Section 6 XC season for Orchard Park.  Thank you all for your support by signing the petition and writing NYS Education Department.  Please refer to Section6Runs.com for the WGRZ-TV news story

We, the undersigned parents, teachers, coaches, student-athletes and friends of all who wish to compete in XC, strongly encourage the NYS Education Department to reverse their ruling on allowing David to compete with his fellow Orchard Park teammates in XC for the 2013 season. David does not possess a elite ability to influence the outcome of any races he competes in because of his disability but he is a key member of his XC team as his teammates encourage, cheer and admire his competitiveness and be key member of the team. Given the circumstances, an exception should be made to allow David to complete his senior year as a member of the Orchard Park Cross Country team.
