At Mountain Elementary School, students selling popcorn cans, wrapping paper and candy were pushed aside in favor of another fundraising effort.
Rather than trekking miles around neighborhoods selling novelties door-to-door, Mountain Elementary students will walk around the track at Sullivan Field.
The fundraiser, called “FUN”d Run, invited students to send out sponsor letters to family members and friends, asking them to sponsor them as they walk around the track, Robbie Harris, Parent Teacher Association president, said.
Using a map, the school staff traced where all the money has been sent from. There are dots from Alaska to the East Coast.
The runs will happen from 8:30-11:30 a.m. Wednesday at the high school track. Students will walk a half hour to 45 minutes. During the walk, it will be participation, not how much money each student raised, that will be celebrated.
Harris said every student who sent out 20 or more sponsor letters will get a medal, regardless of whether these letter recipients sent money. Furthermore, the class in both the upper and lower grades that has the highest number of mailed sponsor letters will get an ice cream party.
The success of this fundraiser is incredible.
