Support the Lakewood Lancers
The Cross Country Volunteer Committee consists of parents who have an interest in supporting the cross country program at Lakewood High School. The LHS Cross Country program receives a small budget to cover the cost of transportation to and from meets and a few meet entries. Parents and the Volunteer Committee cover the cost of invitationals, uniforms, equipment, end-of-season banquet, home meet expenses and other activities.
The Committee also provides organizers and volunteers for the banquet. The Committee covers most of these costs through the various fundraisers that are operated throughout the year. These activities vary from the letter drive, car washes, yard sales, team nights at various area restaurants as well as other fundraising efforts. Our objective is to raise the team’s operating budget to give our athletes the best opportunity to look good, compete with great competition and most importantly to show support for the kids running their hearts out for our school.
Your support of the athletes and the Volunteer Committee are essential to the success of this program. Any contribution will be greatly appreciated!
Opportunities to help include:
• Banquet Organizer

• Fundraiser Coordinator

• Pre-meet dinner hosts

If you have any interest in participating on our Volunteer Committee, have ideas for fundraisers or are interested in making a donation to the team please email LakewoodRunning@gmail.com
The 2017 season will be exciting for the athletes, coaches and parents. There are many opportunities to assist and stay involved. Cross country meets are fun!
The Volunteer Committee has successfully conducted a number of fundraisers and we are always looking for other opportunities to raise awareness and funds. Our efforts are not limited to cash donations, but also in-kind goods and services, if you are ‘connected’ with a business or organization that you think can help, please feel free to contact the us.
We have a great chance to see our team improve dramatically. This is truly a ‘team’ effort and with the coordinated effort of the coaching staff, athletes and parents, we can ALL make a huge difference.
