Franklin High School is Going to Westerns!

It’s official! Both the boys and girls teams at Franklin High School have been awarded a bid to attend USA Ultimate’s High School Westerns Championship in May! This will be a tournament featuring the best high school teams west of the Mississippi River!

This is the first year that Franklin HS was eligible to apply and we got in!

This great news is also balanced by the sobering news that we’ll have to fundraise $ to be able to take 40 kids to Corvallis, OR for a weekend. We’re looking at finding people to do house-shares and looking to raise money for van rentals, hotels (if we can’t find homes to stay in), tournament fees, and food.

Franklin HS is filled with amazing kids but many of them are eligible for free/reduced lunches and can’t afford the full cost (approx $150 or so per player).

If you feel so inclined – we are accepting tax-deductible donations via our account at the Alliance for Education. You can donate online – just make sure to fill out the form like so:

Anything would help and we’d be so very grateful!
