Haddonfield Memorial High School
Boy's Cross Country
July Mileage Challenge
During the month of July, every mile run by the members of Haddonfield boys cross country team will once again count double-once toward their training in the hopes of yet another successful season for Coach Nick Baker’s squad (18 State titles and counting!), and once to benefit the Haddon area Interfaith Caregivers. In the midst of the pandemic last year, the team realized they wanted to do something more than just train, both to help those most affected by the health crisis and to give the team a sense of unity and purpose.
The Cross Country team is asking that supporters pledge one cent or more for every mile run by the team in the month of July. We’re hoping for a goal of 1600 miles run (100 more than last year-it’s always good to work to be better!), so you can budget accordingly (one cent a mile=$16, if we meet our goal.)
Wish to pledge toward this effort? Simply email Asst. Coach Dave Stewart at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “July Mileage Challenge”, the amount you’d like to pledge per mile, and how you’d like your name listed. Coach Stewart will keep you posted on the progress of the runners and let you know how to make a donation when the Challenge is completed . No donations will be collected until after July 31, and you can submit or change a pledge at any time up to that date. Pledging a set amount is also much appreciated, but pledges per mile will help keep the runners motivated. All donations will be paid directly to the Interfaith Caregivers.
Or, if you’d like to set up your own fitness challenge also to benefit Interfaith Caregivers, that’s great too!
Thanks for your support of the team and this great cause, and check the table below at any time to see how we’re doing!
We are so thankful that while running towards their goal, the team answered our call to #givelocal.
