Elgin Girls' Cross Country Team
Organized by: Allison Crane
Elgin High is 77% low-income. We struggle to fund our sports teams with the tools/opportunities that are seemingly assumed for other schools in our conference/region. We are working with amazing students full of potential. Last year, we had 60 athletes comes out for the girls' cross country team and we made solid progress - placing higher than we ever had at our invitational, at the city invite as well as at our regional. I'm just looking for small donations to continue our upward trend. 6 of our athletes have spikes to race in, as we struggles to simply get training shoes for many. The money will go toward shoes, to pay for camp for students who can't afford the $35 fee, and bus fees ($100/trip) to take them to training locations at the river. Thank you for your consideration. Go Maroons!
