Attention XC Parents who are Microsoft Employees
Parents who are employed at Microsoft PLEASE remember to log any hours spent volunteering for the XC team on the Microsoft Give benevity site.  This is at https://give.  This includes time spent volunteering at the team summer camp, XC meets, time spent shopping for and cooking any meals for the end of season party.  For example,  2.5 hours volunteering as a course monitor at a meet is approximately $67 for the Boosters to directly support the team.  Two hours spent shopping and cooking for the end of season pot luck party is $50.  Please don’t “leave that match money on the table”!!!

Let’s Make it Easy!
If your student is running Cross Country, then you are (automatically) a member of the Booster Club—congrats and welcome!

Immediate things to know/do:

  • We are lucky to have a great line-up of volunteers; however, we need a banquet chair please. This job is easier than it sounds. It’s a potluck and there is an outline—you simply follow the established process/instructions.
What we do The Booster Club supports the coaches and team through purchasing race day snacks (those athletes are HUNGRY), holding the end of season banquet, giving coaches gifts and awards, providing coaches with spiritwear, and raising funds to fill gaps for things such as extra spikes, spike bags, timer, watches etc.  This year we are hoping to get a 2nd team tent! Plus, there is more we can do for the athletes, if we have the money—our own supply of KT tape, TheraBands, , and a banner with the CHARGE mantra.

Fundraising Who doesn’t want simple? We are making it super simple with a tax-deductible $75/student contribution (recommended minimum—more is always better). We will also do a monthly restaurant-fundraiser. September and October are TBD. November 5th is Chipotle.
Ways to pay: Remember the season is short, so we need funds ASAP so the team can use them this season.
