Team 1310 greatly appreciates the generosity of its sponsors. Without their financial support there would be no Runnymede Robotics Team.
World Championship Team Costs
Fielding a Championship robot is not just about the trip to the Championships. You have to create a team that wins a spot. Runnymede Robotics needs to raise a lot of money each year to make the FRC program successful.
An example trip to the World Championships has the following costs: The US$5,000 entrance fee, the US$10,000 hotel room costs for the team over the four day competition, the $7,000 bus cost to get there and back, plus $3,000+ for the robot and its spare parts and tools. Unfortunately the ~30% unfavourable exchange rate is making it that much harder.

We need your help with a personal contribution, a corporate donation or getting your neighbours, boss, brothers and sisters, aunts, and uncles to make a donation. Some of our parents' employers have expressed interest in supporting the team. We need your help by contacting them and putting them in touch with us.
Corporate and Community Donations are generally in the $500+ range. We recognize our larger corporate supporters with logo placement on our t-shirts, promotional materials, on our robot and on our 8 ft x 6ft pit banner!
