Dear Potential Sponsor

I’m writing to tell you about the San Rafael High School Mountain Bike Racing Team, or SR Bike Dawgs. Many people are unaware that our school even has a team, let alone one of the top teams in the state. San Rafael High’s MTB race team is a fully volunteer operation. Our coaches devote many hours to training and education to meet the strict league licensing standards.

In addition, our school boasts one of the most diverse student bodies in Marin. Mountain bike racing is expensive, making it unattainable for many students. Our mission is to continue to recruit from our entire student body, giving every kid who is interested the opportunity to participate. With support from our sponsors, we can keep membership dues as low as possible and provide some partial-scholarships. We want to ensure that no one is left out of a sport that becomes a life-long passion for many.

We can’t do it without a good deal of help. We are appealing to you for further support in the form of a tax-free donation, to help offset the many costs associated with running our team, including:

  • Hiring of fitness and nutrition specialists, including weekly spin and core strength classes
  • Education and training for coaches and ride leaders
  • Training equipment
  • Race pit area equipment (shelter, bike and racer prep area, )
  • Building a scholarship fund to offset participation costs for underprivileged students

Rest assured, your commitment to the team will not go unnoticed! Our team is very visible at the races and events, as well as on training rides and in our volunteer work around the county. Your generous donation will be acknowledged as outlined below.
