Purple Raiders Unite!!

Hello, friends!

I have never done anything like this, but I feel the need to help out a huge contributor to our community, an incredible influence on our kids, and a friend. For those of you who don’t know Coach Rich,  he is wholly dedicated to giving back to our community as a volunteer counselor and a youth football coach.

We have recently learned Coach Rich’s signature Chantilly Purple Raiders van is failing. It has over 270,000 miles on it, and  is needing repair!

A new vehicle would need costly modifications that tend to run anywhere between 10-20K.

Anyone who knows Rich can see the dedication and love he shows to all of his players. I know personally that I am eternally grateful for the life lessons and discipline he has instilled in my son…you can’t put a price on that! What better way to show our appreciation and repay Rich’s 35 years of coaching commitment to our football community than helping raise funds toward an operational van?

If you feel compelled, please contribute toward this cause. Any amount is greatly appreciated.  

*Rich’s assistant coach for the Purple Raiders, Steve Jordan will be named as the beneficiary withdrawing the funds on Rich’s behalf and giving him the funds as he needs them.*
