Arens Presents Gatorade Grant to Brown County Foundation

In February, Ben Arens, a recent graduate of Ainsworth High School, was named the 2018-19 Gatorade Nebraska Boys Cross Country Runner of the Year.

As a part of Gatorade’s cause marketing platform “Play it Forward,” Arens had the opportunity to award a $1,000.00 grant to a local or national youth sports organization of his choosing.

Arens presented a check on May 31st to the Brown County Community Foundation Fund, which supports youth sports activities in the area.

The Gatorade Athlete of the Year Award recognizes not only outstanding athletic excellence, but also high standards of academic achievement and exemplary character demonstrated on and off the field. Arens is Nebraska’s first boys cross country runner not from a Class A high school to receive the award.
