4th Annual Run with the BRUINS!!

We’re having an in-school fun run on Friday, May 7th. FundHub, powered by Get Movin’, gives us an online partnership to expand beyond our own community and reach the world for donation support through online Student Webpages. This allows us to accept credit/debit card donations from all over the world. Checks/cash can still be accepted in-school using the attached pledge sheet, but online is best!

We need parents to complete these 3 Simple Steps!

1. First Register and complete your child’s student webpage with a picture. You can personalize your student’s message if you like!
2. Parent Registration Link:
3. Our school webpage: This page contains all the information you need about our event.
4. Make an online donation using the red Donate button right away!
5. SHARE, SHARE, SHARE with friends and family! Using the share tools on your parent dashboard, simply send 10-15 emails and or text messages, then share on Facebook or Twitter. This will help your child reach their goal within 24/48 hours.

All students who register online will receive a Trip to the Treasure Box!
Students who raise $10 will get a Run with the Bruins bracelet
Students who raise $75 will get a Run with the Bruins drawstring backpack
Students who raise $150 or more will get to Party with the Principal
CLASSES who work together toward their total goal can earn incentives such as popsicles, Crazy Hat/Hair Day, extra recess time, and Sonic slushies!
The class that brings in the top dollar amount overall will receive the coveted
Run with the Bruins Traveling Trophy!
