APEX FUN RUN COMING TO SALT CREEK ELEMENTARY IN AUGUST 2013!
We are so excited to announce that our school will be participating in the
Apex Fun Run next year as our major fundraiser! The Apex athletes will be with our students from August 26th to September 6th teaching leadership and fitness as we raise pledges to help our school. Please watch for more details as the fun run gets nearer.
Please feel free to visit http://www.apexfunrun.com/ to hear about this interactive program that helps schools all over the country raise money, while promoting leadership and fitness.
During the Apex Fun Run, students are challenged to get pledges for the laps they will run on September 5th 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, $2, $5 or any other amount for each lap students run. All participants will receive an access code that allows you to enter pledges online. All students will also receive an Apex jersey for the race!
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 character lessons they learn at school each day during the Apex Fun Run program.
· 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 jerseys.
Thank you again for continued support of Salt Creek and we are excited to begin this journey with you!
