Despite the much-needed rain, about 200 people gathered Feb. 8 to celebrate a landmark event in the history of Hayward's Moreau Catholic High School — breaking ground and beginning construction of a new, $5 million Athletic and Student Activities Complex. Guests included alumni, alumni parents, civic leaders, members of the Diocese of Oakland, Moreau Catholic students, former and current faculty and staff, and prominent Campaign for Champion donors, including the Fremont Bank Foundation and the Moreau Catholic Booster Club.

The groundbreaking conversations that day went far beyond athletics and touched on the community of Hayward and the greater East Bay. Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Dublin, spoke of his own experience, and the role that Moreau plays in reaching out to the broader community. "The school sets the gold standard in terms of community involvement," Swalwell said.

The campaign to raise funds for this project, called the Campaign for Champions, celebrated an operational milestone by reaching 63 percent of the $5 million required to complete this project.

As Moreau Catholic President Terry Lee explained to the guests, "The game isn't over yet. With your help, I know we will be very successful," Lee said. Construction should be complete by the end of the summer.
