Obstacle Course for Leadership Development

$1,800 of $75,000 goal

Raised by 19 people in 4 months
Created February 26, 2019

Want to join me in making a difference? We're raising money for Venice High School so that the Marine Corps JROTC program can build an Obstacle Course available to all organizations/students on Campus.  This is much more than just a typical obstacle course.  It is a tool that everyone is welcome to use in order to develop camaraderie, leadership and teamwork within a group, team or club.  

The Marine Corps JROTC program is doing the fundraising, coordination and development of this project and we can't do it without your support.  In order to provide the school with another leadership development tool, I'm going to ask everyone that has an interest in supporting the military, the students of Venice High School or the Cadets in the program, to donate whatever amount you can to help us make this dream a reality.   

The Sarasota County School Board and Venice High School Principal and Administrators have been super supportive, cooperative and helpful in getting this project from vision to reality and we couldn't thank them enough. 

Please help us get this done.  We will keep this Fundraising Mission open until Monday the 25th of March.  We sincerely hope that the community of Venice, the parents, family and friends of all the students here at Venice HS can see the value in this amazing leadership and confidence building asset.   

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for whatever support you can provide.

I'd like to say THANK YOU to Retired US Army Col Robert Case (rwCASE ENGINEERING, INC.) for selflessly giving countless hours of his time to make this happen.  Your determination to get this done has been priceless.  Thank you Sir!

Additionally, I'd like to say THANK YOU to Ardaman & Associates, Inc. for donating over $3,500 in site prep/soil samples.  

One last THANK YOU to the Company that is going to make this all happen:  CORE CONSTRUCTION - Thank you for taking on this project without earning a dime.  Your generosity is greatly appreciated and you will have the satisfaction of knowing that your efforts positively influenced the lives of countless Venice High Students.  THANK YOU!

Semper Fidelis,
Capt Krom & Master Gunnery Sergeant Troxel

Ladies and Gentlemen, We've had an exceptional start to the summer as Venice Yacht Club has stepped up and made the largest donation to date. They've contributed over $2K towards the completion of the Obstacle Course. We are super proud of the relationship we've established with the Yacht Club and we look forward to supporting them as they continue to contribute to many amazing programs throughout the county. Thank you for your generous donation.

Good evening Venice,
I hope everyone had a great weekend. The MCJROTC program was super busy with the Sharks Tooth 10k on Sat., Orienteering Competition in Fort DeSoto on Sat. and Shark Fin 5k on Sun. As a result, I feel like our GoFundMe has fallen off track. Please help me get it going these last two weeks before Spring Break. We really need to make this happen and I can’t do it without everyone getting behind it. We have a large amount of money already invested so I won’t let this project fail. Thank you for your support.
Very Respectfully,
Capt

Good morning ladies and gentlemen, Thank you all for the donations to this point. We expected a slow start due to the limited advertising to date. Please continue to SHARE & LIKE.....I’m confident we’ll get this done. If you don’t want to donate through a site like GoFundMe, please email me at Dean.Krom@SarasotaCountySchools.net

Thank you for your support.

Very Respectfully,
