2013 Hall of Fame Inductees

About Restore the Roar

  Restore the Roar was established in the Fall of 2007 by a dedicated by a dedicated and loyal group of McClatchy Alumni to support McClatchy athletics.  In 2009, Restore the Roar was incorporated as a California non-profit corporation.  Since it began, RTR has helped support recognition of CKM athletes and coaches, secured cash and in-kind donations for football pre-game meals and support for athletes study halls.  RTR has broadened its focus by including support for all sports programs and  including parents of current athletes with alumni on the board of directors.
