R.A.I.N. (Royal Athletes in Need) Fund
Our R.A.I.N. (Royal Athletes in Need) Fund is a noble use of RVC funds. Athletes of families encountering financial challenges or hardships should be granted the opportunity to participate. Our R.A.I.N. Fund is available to help those in need.
RVC funds raised are, in addition to supporting the R.A.I.N fund, also used to purchase advanced equipment to help our coaches and trainers protect the safety and well-being of our athletes, equipment that helps our athletes get bigger, faster, stronger, and initiatives and equipment that help promote school spirit and HSE Athletics overall.
