CXCP Boosters Needs Your HELP!!!

Dear CXCP Parents,

Last Wednesday night, we had our first CXCP Boosters meeting of 2020.  A whopping seven people were in attendance.  We bring this to your attention, not as a joke, but as a concern.  At the Cross Country Banquet in December, Jeff and I acknowledged how important the Boosters and parent volunteer support is for our program.  We wish for this to continue so that we can maintain the level of commitment and financial capital needed to fund the many amazing experiences this program offers.  We understand that Cross Country is probably the last thing on your minds, with track season just getting started, and that’s understandable.  However, we lost a large percentage of our committee leaders and coordinators to this year’s graduating class.  It’s time for the next group of parent volunteers to step up and take the reins.  

We know we can count on your support and time during the Freedom 5000, 24 Hour Relay and Cool Breeze Invitational events, and I appreciate that commitment.  We also need your support filling the following key positions:

·         Parent Volunteer Coordinator

·         Freedom 5K Sponsorship Coordinator

·         Freedom 5K Race Director

It is vital that we get parent volunteers to commit to these positions now, while we still have our current coordinators in place.  They know how to do the job right, know the contacts and can easily teach the next person, making for a smooth transition.  Plus these three positions are directly tied to our biggest fundraiser, The Claremont Village Freedom 5000.  Work has already began on preparing for this event and help is needed.

If interested in filling any of the positions above or being involved in a committee, you can send an email me to:

At this last Boosters meeting, one of our parents shared that another CHS team banquet charged $30 a person for a simple spaghetti dinner…we charged $5 for an amazing catered dinner and all of our student athletes ate for free.  This was due in part to our booster reserves, directly tied to our fundraising efforts over the past years.  Please consider donating your time towards our future events, participate in one of our committees or even take an active role in becoming a coordinator/director.

We have such a strong group of parents with so many different talents and connections.  Let’s work together to support our Cross Country student athletes and build on this program.

Thank you for your time,

Gregg Denson/Jeff Rhyne
