Fun Run

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 $44,000 for 2021-2022 school year!


Because of you, our community, we have broken records with our Fun Run!

We have raised over $50,000 total and more classes than ever before have reached their goal
and received a $300 classroom bonus!  YAY!

We have something special in the works for the kiddos to celebrate how hard they ran.  And did they run!  It brought tears to our eyes, joy to our hearts and life to our campus to see them go!

A final huge THANK YOU for giving your all to our growing school.

Special kudos to Maureen Wood for her amazing perseverance and passion throughout Fun Run!  As a first year Foundation Member, she took the reigns of this event and RAN with it! Also, a grateful shout-out to Lauren Williams, V.P. of Foundation, for her dedication, assistance and great skill in marketing the Fun Run! We couldn’t have done it without these amazing community members!

What Does the Money Go Toward?

The money raised from FUN RUN goes towards:

  • The Games department
  • Campus enhancements (like our beautiful and beloved grades playground, and a new future ECE playground)
  • Music, Art, and Theater programs
  • Continuing education for our teachers
  • Field trips
  • Scholarships for instruments

For each classroom that reaches its financial goal a monetary reward will be earmarked for that classroom’s specific needs. This year, each classroom has the ability to earn $500 towards their classroom accounts when they reach their fundraising goal
