Congratulations Maya Cochrane!

GoFundMe Fundraiser

Our Parent Booster organization has been busy developing new ideas to bring funds into our WHS Track and Field Booster Club. In April, our team will be carrying out a "GoFundMe" fundraiser campaign!

For those unfamiliar with "GoFundMe", it is the world's largest social fundraising platform. Each athlete has been asked to send a list of 10-20 email addresses for this fundraiser. Athletes and/or Parents can send names of friends, family, or business associates. We need to collect these name/email addresses by MARCH 25, 2017 so the Booster club will have time to compile the contact lists by the April 1 campaign start date. PLEASE DO NOT WAIT!

A document has been created to record the collected emails. It has been included below. Please send the completed email list to: wbtrackbooster@gmail.com -OR- give the list to Coach DJ at Track practice this week.

Thank you very much for your help and support!
