Hello Cross Country families,
Thank you to the wonderful ladies that came out to the fundraising meetings and to those of you who were unable to make it but offered your services. I am beyond floored at the outpouring of support for our athletes. With that being said, we are going to cut to the chase and start the year with a CASH CALL. The overall consensus was that we have a lot of kids, in a lot of activities and the fundraisers can get tiresome. With that in mind, one of our moms graciously set up a Venmo account for us, that ties directly into the school cross county account, coach approved. We have a very good system of checks and balances, so no need to worry about funds being misappropriated. Just click – donate and done! Our initial goal is $1500. Any donation will be joyfully accepted, with much gratitude, whatever you feel your family can give at this time. We will leave this open for a few weeks and see what needs to be done next
Please go to Venmo and type in: PennManorCrossCountry
If you do not have Venmo or would like to write a check, please bring the check made out to the Penn Manor Cross County Booster Club and hand it to one of the coaches (or cash in a sealed envelope with the amount written on the envelope)!

Monday practices will meet at the Millersville Borough Park at 6:00 p.m.
Wednesday practices will meet at Manor Middle School at 6:00 p.m.
Friday practices with meet at the Turkey Hill Rail Trail; at 7:30 a.m.
Students should bring their own water for these practices.
Penn Manor will be offering sports physicals at the Comet Field field house on Tuesday July 20th from 10am – noon.
The PIAA physical form should be completed by the parent/guardian prior to arrival.
The cost is $20. Checks can be made payable to “Dr. Timothy Weaver”

Hello Cross Country Families,
My name is Mara Braegelmann. This season I will have three cross country runners, Isaac 11th, Ethan 9th, and Raegan 7th. I am happy to lead the fundraising efforts. I am hoping to keep the fundraising simple. The goal is to raise money for two different causes.
The first is what we will call general seasonal expenses. This covers everything the coaches need to provide a great experience for the kids including our post season banquet. The goal for this is $1500. A few have asked and yes we will gladly take donations! Every dollar counts!
The secondary fundraiser will be for new warmups! We would like to order 40-50 sets so that every member of the team, 7th to 12th graders, would have one (returned and reissued each season). This may be a two year goal as we are looking at Grants as well. This runs approximately $75 a warm up.
If you are interested in joining the fundraising planning team please meet me at Millersville Borough Park on Monday, June 21st at 6pm. This coincides with the first Varsity summer practice.
Please let me know to expect you.
