The WHS track and field team is raising money for equipment, coach stipends, entry fees to meets in 2017!
Secondly, we are raising money for the Heidi Greenwood Scholarship, which goes to runners at both Rocklin High and Whitney High.  Heidi was a distance runner at RHS who passed away during the track and field season of 2013.  She was a caring and hard working young woman.   Heidi was friends with lots of WHS runners and through her, both schools share a common bond.  We reflect often on her goodness and want to share that with runners for decades to come.  All profits on T Shirt sales will go directly to the scholarship!  Right now, all T-shirt sales will occur on the day of the event. 

Entry to the race is $20 and t-shirt sales will be on site.  Go to https://goo.gl/QANQg8 to register!
