RUHS Fundraisers

Occasionally the Redondo Union high school cross country and track program have fundraisers for their program, they reach out to the community and we pass onto our Wave Runner families. Here are two they have going on right now.
1) Sole Generation Sharing the Run with Colombian Youth
Help us raise $800 to ship lightly-worn running shoes & athletic wear to youth in Colombia!

The RUHS Cross Country and Track Team has committed to sharing their love of running with young people in Colombia by starting Project Sole Generation and collecting lightly-worn shoes to send to Colombia. We have received over 450lbs of donated running shoes and shirts in great condition to send to youth in Colombia. Now we just have to get them there! We put this fundraiser together to help raise the funds, go to  https://www.booster.com/sole-generation and check it out.
Share the Run by passing this on to family and friends!

2) This one is like their 4th of July fundraiser, We had Wave Runner families show their support and was part of helping raise $400 for the RUHS Cross Country, Track program. They thank you and greatly appreciated your support.

New This Year!  RUNNING GROUPS!
Recreational Group:
This group is primarily for the children who would like to improve their fitness in general. This group will stay on the Parras Campus for their workouts. Their focus will be walking/running as many laps as they are comfortable with. Their laps will be tallied and awards for each marathon completed will be awarded.
Competitive Group:
This group’s focus will be on competing in the 2 mile middle school races and local 5k road races. In order to achieve the necessary fitness and experience, these students will be running in supervised off campus road runs. They will eventually be running between 2 and 4 mile workouts.

Both groups will warm up, (core and drills) cool down, and participate in team building activities together (games) . There is flexibility for athletes to move between groups if need be. If you have questions about which group your child should be in, please contact the coaching staff. All athletes are welcome to participate in the monthly race events. Please confer with the coaching staff prior to your race so that we can be sure the event matches your athlete’s fitness level.
