Color Me Fun Run

This is our annual jog-a-thon and our LARGEST fundraiser of the school year. Our goal this year is to raise $40,000! If each student raises $80 we will meet our goal. Pledge sheets will come home the first week of school. Even though this is a fundraiser, there are all kinds of fun and exciting prizes too!

- Top lap runners for each classroom will get a their picture put up in the lobby display case and a picture in the yearbook with Mrs. McLain
- Each student who raises $150 or more will be invited to our Red Carpet Movie Event at the school on Friday, October 25th from 5-7:30pm
- The top 10 students from grades K-3 and 4-6 who raise the most money will receive VIP food & beverage service and reserved seating at the Red Carpet Movie Event on Friday, October 25th, 5:00-7:30pm.
day of run:
- 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
- There will be an all school assembly
How it works...
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 Wednesday, October 2nd. If you need a new pledge sheet, download it here. Each grade level will then have a time to run on Friday, October 4th 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 9th to be counted toward prize qualification.
