What a great event! The Randolph Roadrunner Warrior was a huge success. Our Facebook feed and the Twitter hashtag #reswarrior is packed full of fun footage. Thank you to the many folks that made the event such a success. Mary Williams let the charge and there were many folks for many months working hard to make everything work out. Thank you, families, for the donations that are coming in. If you are a contributing business owner – thank you. We could not have made the event possible, and all the things the PTA funds without your contributions. I urge all families to take a look at the back of the t-shirts that came home Friday. Show those businesses some support if you can, as they supported Randolph.
We had some coin donations coming in this past week and at the Warrior event Friday. We are nearing the $600 mark. Kids set a goal at $2,000 and if we reach it I’ve agreed to ride a bull. That should be interesting.
