The Ruch Ascent To Yosemite!

$1,000 of $1,000 goal

Raised by 19 people in 13 months
We are the student finance committee for Ruch Outdoor Community School's 8th grade class.  Our goal is to raise money for a multiday trip to Yosemite National Park this June.

This trip will be extremly memorable to the class because it will feel like a family adventure.  We would like to go out with a BANG! before we go separate ways in high school next year.  Ruch is known for being an outdoor school so this trip would really emphasize our style of learning.   The fact that this is our last field trip at Ruch makes us want to remember it forever.

Already, our class has held multiple fundraisers, such as selling firewood, hosting a haunted house, participating in a Jog-A-Thon, and soon we will be serving morning coffee in front of the school.  Our goal is to be fully funded by the end of April. 

Some major expences include fuel, gear, food, and lodging.  For a class of roughly twenty-five students, food may cost close to $2,000,  gas is roughly budgeted at $800, and the campsite reservations were $450 (already booked).  Some students may need financial aid in the form of scholarships.

We are extremely grateful for any support.   The Ruch community rocks!  In whatever way you can help would be amazing, from donations to just sharing our link on social media.  In addition, every person that donates $100 or more will recieve a free Ruch coffee mug with a signed thank you note inside!
