Race With Me! celebrates competition, but also speaks to overcoming adversity, being proud of yourself, the importance of teamwork, and not giving up on your dreams. While it is written for children ages 6-10, readers of all ages will enjoy the insight into De Grasse's life and his empowering words.
100% of net proceeds from sales go to the Andre De Grasse Family Foundation, committed to inspiring and empowering youth through access to sport, education and healthcare.
"As I reflect upon my experiences competing on the world stage, I am always mindful of the path that brought me here. It is important for me to show kids that the play, attitudes and activities they love are integral in shaping their success as grownups! I want to inspire children to feel what I feel, see what I see and understand how I got here as I race against the best in the world." - Andre De Grasse
