Save JCCC Track

33 years of success. 33 years of impact. 

After 33 successful seasons and thousands of lives impacted, Johnson County Community College eliminated its Track and Field and Cross Country programs at the end of the 2018 school year. Soon, the college will demolish the track and field facility and replace it with softball, soccer facilities and parking.

The college is embarking on what is now a $110 million Facilities Master Plan and enjoys more than $150 million in annual budget.


JCCC is one of the most successful community colleges in the country… but they can’t find a way to maintain these historic programs.

We are far from done with this fight. Join us.
