The 2023 season is just around the corner and we could not be more excited! I am one of the assistant coaches for the Crater Cross Country team and on behalf of the team have set up this GoFundMe. Our team has continued to show their hard work and dedication by running thousands of miles in preparation for the new school year and the next season. Last year our men’s and women’s teams both won the Midwestern League Championship . Our men’s team went on to win the OSAA State Championship Title and our women’s team placed 2nd!
Our men’s team then went on to win Nike Cross Regionals and compete at Nike Cross Nationals where they finished 4th! What an amazing accomplishment!
We are extremely proud of our Crater Cross Country team and they are looking forward to continuing on their journey of success.
With that, we are beginning our efforts for the season and we need your help! Our school is located in a small town in Southern Oregon and we work hard to fundraise the needs of our program and provide opportunities for our student athletes. This season we are hoping to raise money for gear for our athletes including warm ups, hydro flasks and running shoes! (Did you know a runner should change their running shoes about every 300 miles to help prevent injury? That may seem like a lot of miles, but our student athletes can reach that many miles quickly, meaning they can go through a lot of shoes in order to keep them well supported and injury free!). We are also raising money for Ultimook running camp and travel expenses for our in-season and post-season meets including a trip down to California for an elite racing opportunity at the Woodbridge Cross Country Classic!
The funds from this fundraiser will go directly to The Crater Distance Project and the student athletes. Robin Garnica is the treasurer for the Crater Distance Project and will ensure that these funds go to the team account and directly to the athletes. 50% of the funds you donate will go to the athletes to help pay for their warmups, hydro flasks, running shoes, Ultimook running camp and their trip to California for the Woodbridge Classic Cross Country Race. The other 50% of the funds raised will go to any athletes that need any additional funds for any in season and post season races as well as team travel and racing fees. Our goal this year is to repeat Conference and State Championship Titles as well as provide our athletes with elite racing opportunities.
We need your help to support these athletes to reach their potential this 2023 season. We appreciate your support! Go Crater Comets!
