Running Club T-shirts
All students who attend running club regularly will receive a club t-shirt for free. This has been made possible from generous donations by the local businesses listed on the backs of the t-shirts, as well as from the parents and teachers here at Lafayette. I encourage all club members to wear their shirts proudly when they compete in local area races or other sports activities in order to help promote our own club as well as those generous businesses that helped to make it possible. If you are interested in becoming a running club sponsor, please contact me for more information.
If you are interested in purchasing additional shirts for your student or their siblings, please contact me. I have shirts available from 2007 – 2010.
The running club thanks the following businesses for sponsoring us during the 2009-10 school year: Black Knight Technology, Inc.; Charles C. Cowsert III, Attorney at Law; Coker Orthodontics; Fredericksburg Foot and Ankle Center, PLC; Hope Springs Marina; RM Crickenberger Construction; Gimme-Five.com; Team Blitz Elite Racing; Rappahannock Area YMCA; Fredericksburg Area Running Club; Virginia Runner; Central Park Fun-Land.
