Dear Prospective Supporters,
Since opening its doors in 1991, Riverside High School has made a name throughout our state, and nationally at times, as a school with a winning athletic tradition. Due to challenging socioeconomic factors, we’ve struggled to properly maintain game and practice fields for teams in a condition they need to maintain success.
The softball game field is in poor condition, with significant drainage issues and poor field conditons overall that often lead to game cancellations. Riverside's rear practice field used for men's and women's soccer teams is also in dire need of maintenance. Due to 30 years of usage, erosion, and weather damage, the field is in sad shape. The cost of repairs is not covered by DPS and so must come from donaitons.
With our season fast approaching, we are opening our softball field and soccer practice field fundraising campaign to the public. This is a “big ticket” purchase, costing $12,5000.
- Softball Field - $8,500 - Laser grade softball infield, 50 tons of infield mix, cut out and reshape, topdress 25 tons.
- Soccer Practice Field - $4,000 - 50 tons of fill sand to be added to the field and the planting of Bermuda grass.
It is with the support of our families, and good people like yourself, that our kids have an opportunity at an otherwise uncharted path to success. We thank you for your time and consideration. We look forward to your momentous role in working alongside our program so that kids, seeking opportunities in the greater Durham area, feel empowered to reach their goals. Please feel free to pass this along to anyone you feel can help our cause.
