    FANTASTIC FUN at the FUN RUN

    Thank you to everyone who helped make the Fun Run so FUN! Special thank you to Cheryl Hlavac, Kim Iannotti, Michal Inspektor, Tanya Boyce, and the many volunteers who stepped up to make tags, mark tags, donate supplies, set up, clean up and tally laps. It could not happen without all of your effort and good cheer!

    In total our students ran over 7921 laps, which translates to 792 total miles!

    Now, go out and collect from sponsors and get those envelopes in by June 14! With the help of the generosity of the Brooks Powers Group, every student who returns an envelope already earns 10 cents per lap for the school! The class that returns the most envelopes (even if they are empty) gets a pizza party. AND, if we can make it to a 60 percent return rate for the whole school, Mr. Jaskot will dye his beard a snazzy color.


     

    The Annual Fun Run Is All Day Friday, May 31, 2019

    The Fun Run is one of the PTSA’s largest fundraisers and a great way to involve folks outside the school who value the kinds of the programming the PTSA helps fund (counseling and socio-emotional learning, the arts, extracurricular experiences, etc.)

    HOW IT WORKS

    1. Students find sponsors for their run who pledge either a flat amount or per lap (these are recorded on the big envelope that is coming home).

    2. On May 31 each grade level runs for a total of 40 minutes around a course at school (approx 0.10
    mile in length) and their laps are counted (students average 20-30 laps), tallied and given to them on a tally card

    3. Students return to sponsors after the run to collect checks and cash in the envelope or give people their lap totals so they can turn in their pledges on line (an online option is available at
    www.gofundme.com/bf-day-fun-run-2019

    4. Students celebrate their hard work at school with prizes and fun!

    HOW YOU CAN HELP 

    • Help your runner brainstorm people who might care about education and the community’s school and talk through how to approach them. 
    • Sign up to volunteer that day. Please check out the Sign Up Genius and consider signing up for more than one slot and remember that no Seattle rain will keep our Sun Dragons from running towards meeting their fundraising goals!

    • Help your student follow up and collect their donations and get their envelope in on time (All envelopes and donations: Due June 14). 

    Thank you in advance for helping to make this year’s Run super Fun!
