Send the CircuitRunners to Worlds!
The CircuitRunners is a competitive robotics team based at Wheeler High School in Marietta, GA. With 130 members from all grades and backgrounds, we are one of the largest extracurricular clubs at our school. Our membership is economically and racially diverse, representing many different areas of the world. Our club takes pride in participating in 4 different robotics competitions and hosting outreach events to promote STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) in our community.
This year the CircuitRunners team has competed in two robotics qualifiers, where we made the best showing we've had in years! At our first competition, we placed 5th and received the Entrepreneurship Award. At our second event, we placed 7th and received the Judge’s Award. The team is ecstatic to be able to attend Worlds after seeing how strong our chances are.
Now we are facing our biggest challenge yet: sending our dedicated team to Worlds! We have a very competitive robot and enthusiastic students who want to attend, but we need the means to do so. After spending our travel funds on our state competitions, we need your help to fundraise enough to pay for registration fees, hotel fees, meals, and transportation costs.
Thank you for your continued support of our team. Without you, we could not be what we are today!
I have some exciting news! Earlier today we qualified, through robot performance, for the World Championships. We placed 3rd out of 45 teams and made it all the way to finals! We are ranked 5th in the district based on district points and we are super excited to have qualified for the World Championships. Now we have to get our team to the competition, which is in 11 days. We need all the help we can get! Please share this GoFundMe page and help us reach our goal! Thank you for all the support!
