Why the Fun Run?
For those of you familiar to our school, you know we thrive on having ONE fundraiser and making it as fun as we can! For those of you who may be new to Northwest, we have a reputation for getting fundraising done with a single event so that we can focus our time and efforts on what is important---our children! We would love for this to be our only fundraiser again this year, and that is our plan. Plain and simple--if we meet our goal there will be no more traditional fundraisers for the year!
We are asking students, parents, and teachers to go all out to get sponsors and raise funds for the Fun Run. That way we will have the necessary funds to provide the much needed programs for our students and school, and avoid the hassle of selling items for the rest of the year!
What is the Fun Run?
This fundraiser is fun and easy! While teaching our children about the importance of Fitness, Leadership, and Character, we will raise money. Students will ask parents, family members, friends, and more to donate money for each lap they complete (or an optional flat fee) during the Fun Run. After the fundraising part is over, we will transform our field into a racetrack for the students. They will have a blast running, dancing, and skipping to high-energy music while being cheered on and having fun!
