The all-weather track and field is becoming a reality after years of effort by Restore the Roar and the McClatchy Community.  The Sacramento City Unified School District has invested in replacing the 50 year old dirt and grass facility with  a modern all-weather facility for the school.  The project is expected to be completed on November 1, 2017 in time for the Soccer and Track seasons.  

Restore the Roar and McClatchy Athletics have started a fund drive to raise $85,000 to purchase new track equipment for the new facility.  The school needs to repace everything from track starting blocks to pole vault pit and poles.  Join the McClatchy Community to make the facility first class from the stripes on the track to high tech timing equipment.

You can help by donating below.  All donations are tax deductible.  Restore the Roar has 501(c)(3) status under state and federal tax laws (EID 39-2062956 )
