Brief Overview

On April 27th tornados destroyed all of the Ringgold High School athletic field houses.  The program lost practically all their athletic equipment and most band instruments.  The Chattanooga Track Club is hosting a 5K benefit run/walk for the High School Track & Field, Athletic Department, and Band programs.  We hope to draw over 1,000 participants from the greater Chattanooga area running community and raise $25,000.  The course will pass by the damaged High School and Middle School and through some of the neighborhoods affected in Ringgold.

Directions

FROM CHATTANOOGA:  Take I-75 south to Exit 348.  At the exit light take a left and go about a half mile to Robin Road.  Look for volunteers directing you to parking areas.

FROM DALTON:  Take I-75 north to Exit 348.  At the exit light take a right and go about a half mile to Robin Road.  Look for volunteers directing you to parking areas.

 

Benefits

Ringgold High School Track & Field, Athletic Department, and Band programs.  This will cover items not covered by insurance or the school district but instead what is normally supplemented by booster clubs and the students themselves.   What took years for boosters and students to build up in their programs was wiped out in a matter of seconds.
