The t-shirt for sale is the inaugural Coach Downey XC Classic shirt made available at the formerly named "Saints Invite" this past fall. Coach Downey was the founder and meet director for the Saints Invite for over 30 years. In his honor the meet was renamed so that future generations of San Diego runners would know his name and legacy. All proceeds from the shirt sales will go towards Coach Downey's memorial scholarship at St. Augustine High School.
In the fall of 2015 we established the Coach Downey Memorial Scholarship at St. Augustine High School in order to continue Coach Jerry Downey's work of making a positive, lifetime impact in the lives of Saintsmen. All proceeds from this fundraiser will go towards the scholarship fund. You can take home an inaugural Coach Downey XC Classic t-shirt and know your contribution will help continue his legacy for years to come.
