Our lap-a-thon is scheduled for September 13, at Valencia High School at 5:30 pm. This is our primary fund raiser event, This fund raiser helps us keep our price low, allows us to offer scholarships, and assist our athletes in national competition.
We ask every family to seek pledges either by flat rate or a per lap donation. The athletes run 1 hour, later they return to their donors and collect their pledges to turn in by the dead line.  
We will award a grand prize to the athlete who raises the most funds. Every athlete who raises $40.00 will also win a prize.   
The deadline to be eligible for the grand prize is September 28th. Athletes who raise $40.00 or more will still be eligible to win a lap-a-thon prize even if they turn in the funds after September 28th.
Song Requests: We are taking requests. If you have a song you want to hear during the lap-a-thon, please send me an email so I can make sure I have it, * We may not be able to get to all songs requested.

First Meet 
Our first meet will be this weekend at Pierce College, it is an Invitational meet which means that some clubs from the USATF will be there. Please try to arrive by 8:00 am, click here for directions to the meet.
We will be passing out uniforms this Monday & Tuesday. Athletes who ran our 2010 Track season should already have your uniform, unless you have already made arrangements with Bettie Jo, you will not be getting a new uniform for cross country.
We will be handing them out on Monday at practice (6:00 - 7:30) and on Tuesday from (6:00 - 6:30 only). Bettie Jo will be unable to be here on Thursday.
Please reply to this email if you are unable to pick up your uniform on Monday or Tuesday so we can make arrangements for you.
Jelly Beans
Each year we ask that parents give 2 bags of Jelly Beans or Jolly Ranchers for after work outs, we have plenty of Jolly Ranchers left over from our Track season and are just now in need of Jelly beans, we are going to ask for 1 bag per family of Jelly beans, and if we need more to finish the season off, we will send out another request later.
