Color Me Fun Run
Friday, October 6th, 2017
This is our annual jog-a-thon and our LARGEST fundraiser of the school year. Our goal this year is to raise $30,000! Pledge sheets will come home shortly after the school year begins, so be on the look out for it. Even though this is a fundraiser, there are all kinds of fun and exciting prizes too!
- Each class that turns in EVERY pledge sheet (with or without pledges) will receive a doughnut party
- Every student will get their own Color Me Fun Run shirt
- Every student will receive a colored bracelet for each lap they run
- Every student will receive an 8 oz. Jamba Juice following their run
- Top lap runners for each grade level will get a medal
- Each student who raises $100 or more will be invited to our Cosmic Bowling party at Sunset Lanes
- Top fundraisers from both the primary and intermediate halls will get a limo ride to their party at Out of This World Pizza

How it works...
Pledge sheets will come home within the first two weeks of school, so be checking your child's backpack often. Once you have your pledge sheet, work with your child to talk to family, friends, and neighbors to either sponsor them for a flat amount ($5 minimum) or for a per lap amount ($0.50 minimum). Pledge sheets are then returned to the school by Friday, September 29th. If you need a new pledge sheet, download it here. Each grade level will then have a time to run on Friday, October 6th and they will receive a bracelet for each lap they run. We will then tally them up and send pledge sheets back home with the total amount due. All money is due back by Wednesday, October 11th to be counted toward prize qualification.
