Fun Run

The Fun Run is our main fundraiser for the year. Our goal for the 2018-19 school year is to raise $25,000.  This funds all field trips for Fir Grove, art literacy, science expo, and much, much more!  This year, fundraising starts on September 28, the date of our kickoff assembly.  Fundraising packets will come home with students that day.  The Fun Run happens on October 12 – each student runs laps in the gym for 15 minutes.  Fundraising ends on October 26, when pledge packets are due to the school.

For our Fun Run this year, we’re using an awesome web based fundraising system that makes it much easier for you to request pledges from your family and friends, and for them to make secure credit card donations online. It’s fun, it’s easy, and people who use it typically raise twice as much as those who don’t!

Go out and get those donations!  Ask friends, and family, and neighbors, and you can even ask your parents if they can take you to their workplace to ask coworkers to sponsor you.   You can get donations in a set amount, or ask people for a certain amount per lap.  Make sure to give your sponsors a copy of our Fun Run donation receipt.

We need volunteers for everything from stuffing packets to counting laps.  Sign up on our volunteer portal!

Please contact our Vice Presidents in charge of fundraising, Liz Ranweiler and Jackie Herron, at fundraising@firgrovepto.com if you have any questions!
