Why: The more we raise, the more opportunities our athletes have to travel and participate in unique and memorable events. We are looking to raise a minimum of $3000 -- which is consistent with what we've raised in the past, and averages to about $45 per athlete on our roster.
How: we keep a baton moving around the track for 24 hours - last few years we have reached around 250 miles (1000 laps) in a 24 hours. Athletes seek pledges by lap or fixed amount donations from friends, family, businesses and anyone else who is interested in supporting one of Maria Carrillo's most outstanding athletic programs. Please let us coaches know if you need a tax letter to document your donation.
Who: we are looking to involve the wider network of MCHS XC supporters. Besides participation by students, there are also opportunities for parents, siblings, alumni, coaches, etc to take part (ie, run). Also - we'll gladly take food contributions over the weekend to fuel our efforts!!
