Donations & Athlete Sponsorship

The Virginia Raptors Track Club is a track and field team located in Roanoke, VA. Our organization is a local organization that consists of boys and girls starting from age 4 through 18, the Raptors, whom are all committed to the development of their athletic skills while representing our community in different track meets throughout the state of Virginia and surrounding areas. In addition to the dedicated training, our program has an environment that continues to promote individual confidence, self-esteem and leadership skills. We also provide our athletes with educational resources and support such as mentors. These services are provided to make our athletes more competitive and marketable for scholarship opportunities in the future. The Virginia Raptors Track Club is a non-profit organization whose mission is to:

  • Provide youths with organized competition in a safe environment
  • Bring our youths closer together through common interest in sportsmanship and competition
  • Instill the values of education
  • Acquaint the athletes with the fundamentals of the sport
  • Teach sportsmanship, discipline and love of the sport
  • Encourage athletes to maintain satisfactory grades in school and to emphasize the importance of keeping a proper relationship and balance between scholastic and athletic endeavors

As we provide an environment of learning and proper skills to become effective and successful athletes, we do have expenses of track meet fees, uniforms, equipment, hotels and transportation. The average expense per athlete is approximately $1,000.00 a year. As with other travel sports organizations, the Virginia Raptors Track Club does not require our athletes to pay a high registration fee as we rely on fundraising, support from dedicated companies and people such as you. We appreciate any type of contribution to our program therefore we are looking for sponsors such as you who are willing to donate anywhere from $100 and up to help cover these expenses. With every donation, your organization will get a tax deduction. All funds raised go directly to our program as our coaches, managers, and mentors are NON-PAID, dedicated volunteers.
