Fun Run


On Friday, April 14th, get ready to run!

 It’s our 5th annual Fun Run, raising money for local students

 and the Grattan PTA.



Friday, April 14th. Fun Run for K-2 starts at 10:10 a.m. 3rd - 5th graders start at 9:00 a.m.



 Students test their grit while helping others: completing the the PTA’s program fundraising (teacher salaries, computer lab, literary   specialists, etc.) and helping fund the opportunity for students at another San Francisco elementary school to attend the 5th grade overnight field trip.


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.


What to Do

  • Parents must sign the insurance waiver for their children to participate.  The waiver is due Friday, 4/7/17.
  • Pledge forms go out the week of 4/3. Use these to ask friends and family to support your child’s run. Every child who turns in a pledge sheet earns a shirt (suggested shirt donation $10). Shirts are distributed on 4/14 in students’ classrooms and must be worn during the run for safety reasons.
  • Fixed donations of support can be pledged online via Square Cash or turned in on the day of the event. Receipts are available online.
  • Pledge forms will be collected IN CLASS on 4/14.
  • 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 $12,000 this year—every small donation helps!
