We need your help! Nighthawk Cross Country 2015
Organized by: Nighthawk Cross Country
Nighthawk Cross Country via Crowdrise
August 21, 2015
Meet the Nighthawks! Our purpose is to provide junior and senior high homeschooled students the opportunity to participate together in interscholastic athletics, giving these athletes a true competitive team experience. Practices are based on our family's 18-acre vintage hobby farm/nature preserve. We kicked off our inaugural season in 2014 and so far have 23 student-athletes registered for 2015. Our season begins August 17.
We just received word from the Minnesota State High School League (celebrating its 100th anniversary) of our membership acceptance as the first all-homeschool athletic team. This will allow us to compete in a full season with area school teams, as well as the opportunity to run at Section and State meets.
We're looking for financial supporters to help offset our team expenses. The coaches volunteer their time, and we run a lean budget. Without funding from taxes or tuition, our only source of finances, transportation, etc., is team families. We need to raise an additional $2500 in support of the coming season and are asking you to consider how you can help us meet this goal. (If we beat our goal, it will help us get a jump on pre-season expenses next year.)
Any amount you can offer will be greatly appreciated, so thanks for helping us out! Contact us if you'd like to send a check instead of using this site.
If you are interested in donating toward a specific goal we have, we are also offering a sponsorship program. If you wish to accept ad placement, please provide copy-ready digital material.
- Equipment Sponsor ($50): Helps cover team equipment and supplies. You will receive a recognition listing in our awards program and a text link on our website.
- Uniform Sponsor ($100): Offsets one boy’s and one girl’s racing uniform. You will receive a quarter-page ad in our awards program and a linked logo (125x75 px) on our website.
- Award Sponsor ($250): Supports summer running incentives and end-of-season awards. You will receive a half-page ad in our awards program and a linked logo (250x150 px) on our website.
- Race Sponsor ($500): Sponsors all of our teams (boys’ and girls’ varsity, JV, and junior high) at a regular-season cross country meet. You will receive a full-page advertisement/message (8.5”x5.5”) in our end-of-season awards banquet program and your logo (up to 500x300 px) linked from our website to yours.
Again, all contributions will be recognized--no matter the size. Your contribution directly benefits local student-athletes and gives you the opportunity to be part of something that’s never been done in the state of Minnesota!
We'd love to have your support and are happy to answer any questions you may have. Ideas welcome, too. Thank you for your consideration. We look forward to your being part of our story.
