THURSDAY, OCTOBER 18, 2012Rocket Run encourages fitness and fun for students of all ages! The week leading up to Rocket Run will be filled with fun events, including a Pep Rally. Students in grades 1-8 will run laps around our 1/3 Mile-Outside Track (the block around AACA). Our littlest Rockets in Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten will run fun laps or relays on the Inside Track (parking lot). Little Rockets love parent participation and so run times will be announced in September!
- $45,000 raised
- $150 or more raised per student
- 100% student participation
Rocket Run relies on parents, like you, to be successful! Volunteer times are flexible and volunteers are needed throughout the day. Please contact email@example.com if you are interested in volunteering.
Please return your offline pledge form to school no later than Race Day, Thursday, October 18. Prizes will be awarded based on pledges collected by October 18. Any pledges collected after the due date will still count toward your annual fundraising requirement.
