Making a Difference Every Day for the Youth in Our Community Substance Use Awareness - Prevention - Intervention - Education
The Atascadero Greyhound Foundation has been serving the Atascadero community for more than 20 years, gradually adding more events that serve its mission. We have grown, and continue to give because of the generous donors, sponsors and participants of our events. Our events are a benefit to the community in healthy activity — either athletically, musically, educationally, or in the fight against addiction.

Established in 1994, the Atascadero Greyhound Foundation was first known as the Atascadero Athletic Foundation. We were formed with the sole purpose of raising funds to improve the
track at Atascadero High School. Then principal, Jim Stecher, recalls the six-lane, dirt track that flooded every winter. Now the students of Atascadero High School and the members of the community enjoy a sleek nine-lane, all-weather track.
We have four big events throughout the year, and support the LIGHTHOUSE committee and the Committee for Atascadero Public Schools, which provide for the kids in the Atascadero Unified School District in different ways. These events include the Wayne Cooper Memorial Golf Tournament, Hall of Fame Celebration, Hares & Hounds, and the All Comers Track Meet.
The Atascadero Greyhound Foundation is proud of its motto "Making a Difference Every Day for the Youth in Our Community" and our efforts have made that motto a reality.
