Hello, Withers Wildcats!
We are HOPEFUL that we will indeed be able to hit the ground running in October with our annual Wildcat Prowl 5K and Fun Run. HOWEVER, we acknowledge all of the unknowns about what the future holds in regard to COVID-19, social distancing and what that could mean for our race. Tuesday, May 5th is a global #GivingTuesdayNow campaign and we want to jump on the bandwagon. We will fundraise online this Fall no matter what, but we stand to lose a lot of our annual Prowl fundraising income (about 25-30%) if we are not able to collect race registration fees.
With that in mind, on this #GivingTuesdayNow, would you consider donating whatever amount you would have paid to register runners in the Wildcat Prowl 5K and Fun Run? As a point of reference, an adult registration is $30 and kids are $15. We will have Tshirts printed in the Fall and donors will receive shirts based on how many they "registered." For example, if you have two kids and one adult to account for, your donation would be $60 and you'd get three shirts (two child sized and one adult).
We are so thankful for your willingness to help us get a fundraising jump on making sure our 2020-2021 COMEBACK YEAR is amazing for students, faculty/staff and parents alike. Please reach out with questions (firstname.lastname@example.org).
