In 2018, we hit our Fun Run goal and raised over $40,000!
About Fun Run
The Fun Run, sponsored by the MPCS Foundation, is school’s first fundraiser of the year and is typically one our largest moneymakers.
We strive to make all children feel they can participate regardless of their running ability. It’s supposed to be fun, right? We are focusing on lump sum donations (vs. per lap pledges) and are encouraging that each child raise at least $100 in order to meet our event goal of raising $40,000!
What Does the Money Go Toward?
Fun Run funds will go toward supporting our classrooms, campus, teachers, and PE department. Here’s the breakdown:
- 5% of the total amount raised will go directly to the PE program at MPCS. Last year, the PE program received $1,850, which went toward the purchase of games equipment.
- For each classroom that reaches its financial goal a monetary reward will be earmarked for that classroom’s specific needs. Last year, we deposited over $4,000 into the classroom accounts through Fun Run donations.
- The remaining funds will support professional development for our MPCS staff, and improvements to our wonderful school.
