100% of the money raised goes directly to support our kids’ school experience!

HOW IT WORKS: All students, Kindergarten through Fifth grade, earn money for our school by collecting donations (flat donation or per lap) for their participation in the school wide Fun Run. The run lasts for 20 minutes and students can choose to run, jog or walk. Most kids run 10-15 laps.
