Fun Run coming October 15!

Lace up your running shoes for our first fundraiser of the year!

Apex Fun Run — October 15, 2014 — Edgcumbe Recreation Center

The Apex Fun Run kicks off with a Pep Rally during the school day on Monday, October 6th and finishes strong with kids running at Edgcumbe Recreation Center on Wednesday, October 15.

During the Apex Fun Run, students are challenged to get pledges for the laps they will run. Students will run for 30 minutes and 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 students will receive an access code that allows you to enter pledges online. Fifty-two cents of every dollar collected will go directly toward learning enrichment activities within and beyond our classrooms (e.g., field trips, in-class experiences to support core knowledge, complementing tools/technology for new iPads, etc.).

The Apex Fun Run is for every student regardless of how many pledges they may collect. All students will receive Apex bands, t-shirt, race-day lap counters and team awards.
