The Riverside High School Athletic Booster Club is committed to providing student-athletes at Riverside High School the very best facilities, equipment, protection and opportunities. We raise funds for uniforms, training equipment and team support.
WEAR A MASK - SOCIAL DISTANCING - WASH YOUR HANDS - IT WORKS!!
In consultation with district athletic directors and high school principals and pending further guidance from the NCHSAA, Durham Public Schools has determined that high school athletics will be suspended indefinitely to ensure the health and safety of student-athletes and reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
“High school athletics has important benefits in boosting student engagement and fostering a strong school community,” said Superintendent Pascal Mubenga. “However, this is not the right time for interscholastic competition. We will continue to monitor trends and consult with public health officials, and will revisit this decision when conditions improve.”
Help us keep our 440 students competing on 19 teams at Riverside by making a gift of $203 during this special fundraiser. Your gift of $203 provides the equivalent of the expense for one student to participate in one season this year.
Did you know that Durham Public Schools only provides 14% ($15,000) of the funding needed to run our Athletics program at Riverside? The other 86% of the funding comes from ticket sales, sponsorships, and fundraisers. That means the Athletics Department and the Booster Club need to produce over $89,000 in revenue this year to support our students.
100% of donations through this effort will go directly to the Booster Club to help our kids – in contrast to a small percentage we make off any fundraising sales (candy, coupon books, etc). If we are successful with this fundraiser, the Booster Club won’t be asking you to sell anything later this year!
