Our annual fall fundraiser, The Fun Run, officially kicked off this past week. With just 28% of the families participating thus far, we’ve raised over $9,600! We have 16 more days to go – so keep sharing your donation pages!
What you need to know:
The Event: On November 5th, students will be challenged to run 40 laps around a track in the school’s parking lot while listening to energetic music and having fun! Your students will be asked to wear comfortable clothes and shoes, plus a specific color t-shirt according to grade. See the assigned color for each class below.
Fundraising: This past weekend, each family was sent a link to a unique fundraising page that you can share with your friends and family in order for your student(s) to get sponsored for this event. Check your inbox and junk mail for an email from Just Giving with your unique link. A follow-up email with your family link was also sent on Sunday evening by Adriana Rivas. If you have not received either of these emails, reach out to us at email@example.com.
Meet your Family Fundraising Goal: The Fun Run is in support of the Together We Can Fund and is the first of two opportunities to fundraise to meet your family fundraising goal for the 2021-2022 school year. The Together We Can Fund (TWCF) has Giving Circles to help donors give at a level that is right for them. We ask current school families to participate at the Innovation Circle by fundraising and/or donating between $500 - $2499 to the fund. One hundred percent of the donations made to your family during the Fun Run count towards helping you reach this goal!
Prizes: Your students can earn fun prizes for raising money for the school. Since we’re fundraising as a family this year, not by student, prizes in levels A-D will be awarded to each student in the family. Prizes for levels E, F and Bonus will be awarded one per family. Check out the attached prize sheet for more information. Note that prizes are subject to change based on availability. Also, be the top fundraiser in the school and get your choice of a $150 gift card to any participating retailer on Benefit Mobile!
Parent Corner: New this year, parents can earn prizes too! Check out the parent corner on the prize sheet to learn how you can earn parent hours and more.
The Goal: We have a big goal of reaching $40,000 for this event! We can reach it if everyone participates! We set each family’s goal to $350 for their donation pages, but don’t stop there – as you can see below, some families have exceeded that in just a few days of launching this event.
Checks: Do you have sponsors who would rather write a check? Have them make the check out to Assumption PTG and write your child/family name and Fun Run in the memo. Then drop it by the office and we’ll add it to your donation page to easily track your overall donations!
