Dear Prospective Supporters,
Since opening its doors in 1991, Riverside High School has made a name throughout our state, and nationally at times, as a school with a winning athletic tradition.
Due to challenging socioeconomic factors, we’ve struggled to properly equip our track team with the resources they need to maintain success. Riverside is in dire need of new a new high jump pit. The original high jump pit was purchased when the school opened in 1991. Due to age, years of usage and weather damage, it was discarded six years ago. Since then, Riverside has been unable to practice or participate in the high jump portion of track & field competitions, surrendering points in every event.
With our season fast approaching, we are opening our high jump pit fundraising campaign to the public.
This is a “big ticket” purchase, costing upwards of $8,000. Under the proper conditions the high jump pit can have a 15-20 year lifespan. It is with the support of our families, and good people like yourself, that our kids have an opportunity at an otherwise uncharted path to success. We thank you for your time and consideration. We look forward to your momentous role in working alongside our program so that kids, seeking opportunities in the greater Durham area, feel empowered to reach their goals. Please feel free to pass this along to anyone you feel can help our cause.
