Run for Fun'ds
A Community Event to Support our Local Schools
Mark your calendars! On September 11, 2010, the Brentwood Union School District, joining efforts with its schools' parents clubs, will hold its first annual walk/jog-a-thon aimed at getting the community together in a fun family event and raising funds for the 10 elementary and middle school sites in the district. It will be held at the fields between Edna Hill Middle School and Garin Elementary School. Registration starts at 7:30 a.m. and the walk/jog-a-thon will start promptly at 8:30 a.m. so make sure you come early.
Run For Fun'ds is a shared undertaking by all 10 school parents clubs - Adams, Bristow, and Edna Hill Middle Schools, and Brentwood, Garin, Krey, Loma Vista, Marsh Creek, Pioneer, and Ron Nunn Elementary Schools. It was initiated and chaired by three lovely moms Carrie Ellcessor, Leann Weibert,
and Janna Stonebarger. In addition, each of the 10 schools is actively represented by volunteer parents in the planning and organizing committee for the event.
The proceeds from the event will be equally divided among the 10 schools, with the school principal and the parent club board in each of the schools deciding on how best to use the funds for their particular school. As an added
incentive, the school with the most registered walkers/runners will be given an additional $500 - so make sure to pre-register and help get your school that additional cash!
This event is for everyone who wants to help our local schools, so invite your friends and relatives and make it a family day! Pre-registration forms are available through the BUSD, any of the 10 schools, or the Run for Fun'ds website. The pre-registration fee for each BUSD student participant is $10 and adults are $15. Teachers and administrative staff can register for a discounted fee of $10. Registration fee on the day of the event is $5 more. These donations are tax-deductible.
The day itself promises to be a lot more fun than just a regular walk/jog-a-thon. There will be
food, entertainment, and various fun activities after the
walk. You can get a $5 wristband for your child to enjoy
a variety of jumphouses, face painting, and other fun activities. The organizers are even planning a dunk tank for our beloved principals! It's definitely an event not to be missed!
