Fundraiser

This summer/fall, the Crown Point Girls Cross Country Team will be conducting a fundraiser to help with program costs.  The fundraiser will go from now until August 15th.

In order to raise money for the program, and the individual athlete, we will ask businesses and/or individuals for their financial support.  Sponsors will be recognized in a variety of different ways based on the amount of their donation (Diamond, Platinum, Gold, etc).  The goal is for each runner to secure $200 worth of sponsorships.

The sponsorship money will help to fund the Girls Cross Country Team, and also reduce the program costs for the individual athlete. 

Benefits to the Individual Athletes

  • If an athlete secures $100 worth of sponsorships, the athlete will be rewarded with their Team Shirt ($15 value). 
  • If an athlete secures $200 worth of sponsorships, in addition to their Team Shirt, the athlete will also be rewarded with their Team Warm-Up (additional $75 value). 
  • If an athlete secures $300 worth of sponsorships, in addition to their Team Shirt and Team Warm-Up, the athlete will also be rewarded with their camp cost being waved (additional $80 value).
  • If an athlete secures over $300 worth of sponsorships, 30% of the amount over $300 will be credited towards that individual athletes’ additional gear, such as, running shoes.
  • If an athlete secures at least $200 worth of sponsorships before August 1st, they will receive their team shorts as an added bonus (additional $20 value).
  • The class (freshman, sophomores, juniors, seniors) that brings in the most sponsorship money (relative to the number of girls in the class) will receive a pizza party.
  • The individual girl that brings in the most sponsorship money will receive a new pair of running shoes.
