Three Dons Athletes Show Leadership off the Field – Go 24 Miles in 24 Hours for Acalanes Athletics

Three Dons Athletes Show Leadership off the Field – Go 24 Miles in 24 Hours for Acalanes Athletics

On a long weekend designed for rest and relaxation, Acalanes student-athletes Benjy Braunstein, Evan Malmquist and Rhett Skvarna had other plans.  In their words:

As sophomores at Acalanes, we find ourselves needing to burn off energy while our sports are cancelled. We are challenging ourselves to run one mile every hour, for 24 hours straight.  We are fundraising for the Acalanes Boosters program to ensure that our sports can get off on the right foot as soon as programming resumes.

The boys began the challenge at 7pm on Sunday evening, running intermittently throughout the night, and finishing strong at 6pm yesterday, exhausted but gratified.   Supported by friends and family, the effort has raised $2,633 so far to support Acalanes Boosters, which helps fund all athletic teams at our school. 

The initiative, thoughtfulness and follow-through displayed by Benjy, Evan and Rhett makes our Acalanes Community (which CANNOT be cancelled) proud.  It also once again supports the notion that, in the face of adversity, DONS SHOW UP.  

Great job guys!   Go Dons!

2020 Booster Bash Postponed

2020 Booster Bash Postponed

Hello Dons – first of all, we wish good health and safety to the entire community during these uncertain times.  The 2020 Booster Bash has been postponed to a date to be determined. The Boosters are dedicated to supporting Acalanes athletics throughout this crisis, and while nobody is sure when our kids will be back on campus, we are planning to hold an event for the Dons community in the Fall.  In the meantime, look for additional communication about an online fundraising opportunity before the end of the academic year. Stay strong Dons!
