The kickoff for the Brockman FUNdRUN is TOMORROW, October 9th! The run itself will be on November 9th, but there will be lots of fun and events leading up to the BIG DAY. We will be providing information to the children all month long about healthy living, including nutrition, sleep and the importance of movement.
Our theme this year is “Dream Big – Let’s Play!” with the goal of raising money for new playground equipment in the future.
New to Brockman and don’t know what this is all about?
This is Brockman’s 5th annual FUNd Run. Started in 2013 with the purpose of raising awareness of healthy living while also raising money for the school, the PTO got the idea to host our own FUNd Run event. No more selling candy bars or wrapping paper. No more navigating multiple small fundraisers throughout the year.
How does it work?
The entire school will run/walk for 20 minutes on November 9th. They will be split into primary, lower elementary and upper elementary, and the run/walk will take place at different times for each group. This is not a race or speed competition. Every child will run or walk the full 20 minutes.
The concept is simple.
On October 22nd, your child will bring home a packet. They will ask friends and family to sponsor them with pledges. Sponsors can pledge by the minute (ex: $2 per minute = $40) or they can make a flat donation. They will bring their pledges in by Friday, November 9th when we host the big event.
Remember, this is the ONLY fundraiser for the PTO this year. We hope you will participate all month long with your child at home by incorporating some of our healthy living pointers and by helping them ask for pledges.
Any families wishing to volunteer to help with the FUNd RUN?
You will get your chance, don’t worry. We’ll send an email detailing the opportunities to participate on this wonderful day of activity and Brockman spirit!
