APEX FUN RUN COMING TO REIDY CREEK ON TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 22ND
We are so excited to announce that our school will be participating again in the Apex Fun Run this year as our major fundraiser! We had an amazing Apex Fun Run last year and profited over $18,000. A majority of this was put right back into the classrooms for mini grants to teachers for school supplies. The remaining went to help pay for field trips and after school programs.
The Apex program will be with our students from TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 22nd to FRIDAY OCTOBER 2ND teaching leadership and fitness as we raise pledges to help our school. Please look in your child’s folder and e-mails that will be sent to you from your teachers as the fun run gets nearer.
Please feel free to visit www.apexfunrun.com to learn about this interactive program that helps schools all over the country raise money, while promoting leadership and fitness. This year’s character theme is Apex Dream Team, where students will join the Apex team in a nationwide Extreme Race to learn what it means to become an Extreme Leader:
- Dive In!
- Elevate Others!
- Attitude Check!
- Make A Difference!
During the Apex Fun Run, students are challenged to get pledges for the laps they will run on THURSDAY OCTOBER 1ST to help our school. Students will run for 30 minutes and will run an average 26-36 laps, with the maximum amount of laps being 36 (each lap is 1/16th of a mile). Sponsors can pledge $1/lap, $2/lap, $5/lap, or any other amount for students. All participants will receive an access code that allows you to enter pledges online. All students will receive Apex bands, race-day lap counters, and team awards. We will need your help in the following four ways:
- Help connect your child to potential sponsors and help them acquire pledges from family, friends and contacts.
- Ask your child about the “Apex Dream Team” character lessons, and download the “Apex Fun Run” App!
- Come to the Apex Fun Run and don’t forget to invite others to attend our fun-filled community event.
- Help volunteer for the race! We need a few parents to help cheer on students and mark laps. If you would like to volunteer for your student’s race, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the Subject Line “FunRun Volunteer“
Thank you again for continued support of Reidy Creek Elementary School, and we are excited to begin this journey with you!
