Fun Run Fundraiser
October 5 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
Tie up those laces to support Sunstone!
We are preparing for Sunstone’s first-ever Fun Run fundraiser! The goal is to raise funds for our school while encouraging healthy physical activity and community involvement. Hopefully, this maiden Fun Run will be the beginning of a terrific tradition!
The funds raised from Fun Run will go toward two things, building our scholarship fund and adding an element to our playground that the children will enjoy. The addition to our playground is yet to be decided (as it is fund dependent), however, we will involve the children in the final decision process. We hope you’ll help your children embrace this opportunity and guide them in getting support for the project.
When: The Fun Run will be held, conveniently, just before the Fall Festival on Saturday, October 5, from 9:00 to 10:00 am.
Who: Three separate groups of students will be participating for 15 minutes of run time each: Huckleberry toddlers (accompanied by an adult), Children’s House, and Elementary students.
Where: The Sunstone soccer field will be decorated for our Fun Run laps.
Information Packets: Students will receive an information packet in their take-home folders. Fun Run details, a suggested script, and a pledge sheet will be included.
How you can support your children: Please discuss with your children what may be a realistic number of laps that they can run around the soccer field in the 15-minute time frame. You can also introduce them to the script in the information packet. This script can serve as a guide for when they are talking to their prospective donors. Thank you in advance for assisting your children in reaching out to friends and family.
Pledge Sheets Due September 30: Students will turn in their pledge sheets to Molly in the office by September 30. Please make sure the sheets are complete with the names of supporters, their emails, phone numbers and their pledge amount. After our Fun Run the development office will contact the supporters on how to complete their pledge. Nothing more is required of you.
If you have any questions about this event, please contact Molly.
