Jog for a Hog August 12th

Posted: July 21, 2016 in Uncategorized

Runners & Superfans,

This year’s “Jog for a Hog” 5K will be held on Friday August 12th at 7 pm and will start and finish at Strafford High School.  “Jog for a Hog” is our annual fundraiser for the team and it takes everyone’s help to make it a success.  Cross country runners will need to donate a bag of cookies and some fruit for the race, which will be used as snacks for the participants. In addition to the donation, I am asking that runners please be here to either run or volunteer for the race.  The most important thing that any of us can do is spread the word about the race and get as many people here and donating as possible.  This race is actually free for all participants and we just ask  for donations to help support the team.  The more people we can get here then the more donations we are likely to draw. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.  I’m looking forward to a great cross country season and this would be a perfect way to kick off the year.

Thanks for your support of Strafford XC,

Duane Fabro

Parents & Superfans,
The cross country team has a great opportunity to raise some money by volunteering at a race this Saturday, July 9th, being held in Strafford. The race titled “Sweatfest” is being sponsored by the Ozark Mountain Ridge Runners running club and is a 10 mile, 5 mile, & 2 mile race event.
They are needing adult volunteers to help at aid/water stations for the runners out on the course and our students will be helping at the start and finish. The race starts and ends at Landmark church in Strafford and will begin at 8 pm in the evening. Volunteers will need to plan on being available from 7 pm to 11 pm and will need to bring a flashlight or light device with them.
This is a great opportunity for the team to receive a donation as well as encourage running in the Strafford area. Please let me know if you are willing to volunteer and help the team out.

You can call or text me @ 417-379-6764 or email me back.

Thanks for your help,
