Fun Run

On Friday, April 13th, get ready to run!

 It’s our 6th Annual Fun Run,
raising money for local students and the Grattan PTA.

   

When

Friday, April 13th. Grades 3-5 start at 9:00 a.m. Grades K-2 start at 10:10 a.m.

Why

Students test their grit while helping others! Fun Run helps to complete the PTA’s fundraising, which supports teacher salaries, computer lab, literary specialists, and more. The money we raise will also help another SFUSD school fund their 5th grade overnight field trip to Marin.

Who

Students. Teachers. YOU! Anyone in the Grattan community is encouraged to run, fundraise or volunteer. We need a lot of volunteers to have the event run smoothly. All volunteers and runners get a t-shirt. Parents tell us every year how much they love volunteering at this event! Sign up on Konstella.

What to Do

  • Parents must sign the insurance waiver for their children to participate. The waiver (in Microsoft Word or as a PDF) is due Friday 4/6/18.

  • Fun Run t-shirts will be distributed in students’ classrooms on 4/13 and must be worn during the run for safety reasons.

  • Every child will receive a t-shirt, regardless of whether they have submitted a pledge sheet. However, if you would like to help offset the cost of the t-shirt, the suggested donation is $10.

  • Pledge forms go out the week of 4/2. Use these to ask friends and family to support your child’s run.

  • Pledge forms will be collected IN CLASS on 4/13.

  • Fixed donations of support can be pledged online via Square Cash or turned in on the day of the event. Receipts are available online.

  • Music is DJ’d throughout the event, the “Phun Zone” has fans to keep kids cool, water stations keep them refreshed, and parent cheerleaders encourage them at every turn. Safety monitors are along each block.

  • Runners get marked as they complete each lap. The run finishes where it starts, with nutritious and delicious fresh fruit and carbs!

 

Our goal is to raise $15,000 this year—every small donation helps!
