I would like to thank the Rooftop Community for all your patience while I have been desperately trying to secure a venue for this year’s event. I understand that I may have caused some confusion by reporting at Mayeda BTS Night that we would be running at Lindley Meadow in the Park. Well, that has been changed and in my opinion in our favor! We have been granted the use of Kezar Stadium and the adjoining grassy triangle for our annual Rooftop Run on Sunday Ocotober 20th, 2013! Here’s a bit of Wiki history that may excite some of you: Kezar Stadium is the former home of the San Francisco 49ers and the Oakland Raiders (their first season) of the NFL, and of the San Francisco Dragons of MLL. It also served as the home of the California Victory of the USL First Division before the club folded. It also hosts amateur and recreation sports leagues, as well as numerous San Francisco high school football games (including the City Championship, known popularly as the “Turkey Bowl”).
We have some mighty history to push our Run into an unprecedented success! At this time I need to remind you all that I need volunteers. If you did not sign up for a job on BTS Night, please email me and let me know that you can donate an hour or two to help the cause. Please also look for the amazing Rooftop Run Children’s Art Inspired Tshirt forms in this weeks bulletin as well. And as I repeat year after year, it’s not the dollar amount that is donated it’s the donation. Whether it’s $5 or $5000 that your family is comfortable with, we simply want everyone to come enjoy the Run, eat some amazing food, gab with your children’s teachers, fellow parents and the kids and have a great time while making money for our school. Keep in mind that last year we raised $75,000 and I know we can do even better this year. Thank You Rooftop!
