This is the blog for the Redondo Union High School Cross Country, Track and Field Boosters. In here you’ll get up to the minute meet information, guidance on what to bring to meets, any updates on practices we get, and maybe some fun stuff too!
The Booster Club
RUHS CROSS COUNTRY & TRACK BOOSTER CLUB began officially in the spring of 2006 as a 501-C3 non-profit organization with the board consisting of Dave & Mona Dill and Dave & Melanie Nelson. The opportunity to support the ‘new’ coaching staff and to better serve the needs of the student/athletes participating in the Cross Country and Track programs was the overwhelming motivation. The booster club began by working directly with the coaches to organize parent support and raise $$$. The resulting effort provided a much needed conduit to the parents and gave the coaches access to much needed volunteers. In the spring of 2006, the booster club helped put on our first Bay League Track Meet. It was a tremendous success with over 30 parents stepping up to perform timing duties, record scores or move hurdles.
In July, 2007, the booster club unveiled the Run RUHS blog. Much of the design work was generated by our own Cross Country & Track student/athletes and parent volunteers. The blog will be used to provide the parents with much needed details about upcoming events or meets.
Each year a new Board of Directors will be appointed to run the Booster Club. If you are interested in being on the Board or wish to serve on a committee, please contact us.

Fundraising & Donations
Although these sports are relatively inexpensive, our student run fundraisers do not fill our budget requirements. Additional expenses are needed towards race entrance fees, transportation & equipment, and athletes unable to purchase uniforms, shoes, or training camps. We are asking families and business to donate an item, basket, gift card/certificate, or service. This is a great chance for local business to support our community and schools. Or if you would like to make a company donation purchasing equiptment such as Field equiptment, or a Clock/Timmer, we will dedicate it to your company. These athletes are one of the hardest driven and academically gifted team mates on the RUHS campus.
