Community. Faith. Vision.
The RTH Foundation aims to empower the next generation of high school student athletes in Chautauqua County who strive to pursue STEM-related studies in college as well as entering into partnerships with like minded organizations.
2023 Spring Fundraiser:
1st Annual RTH Foundation Chautauqua Lake Run
On Saturday, May 27th, the RTH Foundation will kick off its first annual Chautauqua Lake run to raise money for the foundation. At 7AM on Saturday, May 27th, we will start the run at the Bemus Point Boat Launch and finish at the intersection of Lakeside Drive and Main Street in Bemus Point later that evening.
If you want to donate to the foundation, we would really appreciate your support. In 2023, 75% of the raised money will go towards a Maple Grove and Southwestern student athlete who are pursuing a STEM-related major in college.
The other 25 percent of the money raised will be donated to The CJ Morgan Foundation. The CJ Morgan Foundation was created after CJ Morgan, a personal friend of Ryan and an incredible man. The CJ Morgan Foundation strives to enhance the lives of students involved in extracurricular activities, leadership roles & community service while supporting veterans, military, and law enforcement families, and those organizations that honor service to others and country.

In 2022, we awarded two outstanding high school student athletes who are pursuing STEM Degrees at some of the best universities in the world. The two scholarship winners were Dontae Hoose (Southwestern '22 and Lehigh '26) and Sam Eimiller (Maple Grove '22 and University of Chicago '26).
Dontae Hoose is a Southwestern High School graduate and will be pursuing an engineering degree from Lehigh. He also was an incredible athlete. He took 3rd at the New York State Wrestling Championships and 8th in the shot-put event at the New York State Track and Field Championships. He is now an athlete on the Lehigh Wrestling team.
Sam Eimiller is a Maple Grove High School graduate and will be pursuing a computer science degree from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Sam was an incredible athlete as well. He now holds the Maple Grove School record in the 110-meter hurdles and was a key player in Maple Grove’s soccer state tournament run. Not many graduates from Chautauqua County major in computer science coming out of high school and this shows his willingness to better himself outside the classroom.
