Color Run Information from Mrs. Sawyer
UPDATE: All business sponsorship money needs to be turned in by Monday, March 31st to allow enough time for the logos to be printed on the t-shirts. Also, the students can bring in their donations Monday-Friday and all money is due by Friday, April 4th!
The color run fundraiser will be April 25th
at Ike in the afternoon. The students will run around the school and playground. Each time the students get to an end point they will be covered with powdered color.
The color run will run for the duration of the afternoon. Since we have such a large number of students, we will run in groups. (K-2, 3-5) We are going to allow siblings to pay to take part in the run as well if they would like but it will be limited to the first 50 children. It will be $10 to run or $20 to run plus a shirt.
The students do not have to run. Students with asthma or lung disease cannot partake because of the powder. These students will be exclusive helpers for the day. Clean up after the race will take some time. The powder is very fine and simply brushes off of clothes but can stain car seats if not wiped up. We will send home notes advising parents to send a change of clothes, a towel, and a bag to put items in. The students will receive "goodie bags" on the day of the race with their shirt and additional incentives. Other prizes (as seen below) will be given to students as they reach the different donation levels. The shirts will be saved for race day morning. If a student would choose to not wear the shirt during the race, he or she can just simply wear a white shirt.
Students will collect flat donations from March 15 to April 4th. We have been busy seeking sponsors to get the event started. We are doing well but still in search of more. If you know of or are interested in sponsoring the event, please email Vanessa Sawyer.
