We are excited to have your family join us again for the most important fundraiser of the year! The Fun Run and Fitness Fair helps the PTA fund a variety of programs for Woodburn students, including our school-wide arts-focused program, Continuing Education Through the Arts (CETA).

Please make a pledge to support your child’s participation in this awesome annual event.

2 ways to make donations for the Fun Run:
1) Search for student’s name online at the Fun Run website, and be sure to share your child’s link with family and friends to encourage more donations in support of your student!
2) Send donations in the envelopes that were sent home in late March.

What will happen during the Fun Run?

There will be bibs and medals for all of the runners. Representatives from the community will share information about health and fitness. There will be additional prizes for the students and grades that raise the most money. The PTA will be selling snacks and raffling prizes. A food truck will also be on-site.

Logistics

The Fun Run takes place in the evening at Woodburn. Check-in begins at 6:00pm, and the race begins at 6:30 pm. It is a fun event for the whole family, so please plan to attend to cheer on your child. Bus service will be available for Fairmont Gardens residents before and after the race.

How does your child earn pledges for the Fun Run?

To make this fundraiser a success, please help your child secure financial pledges from friends and family. Donations can be made via check to the Woodburn PTA using the envelope that came home in Thursday folders, or donations can be made online at https://99pledges.com/fund/woodburn2019, simply search for your child’s name in the participant bar.

Also with the packet that came home in Thursday folders, is a sample script for students to use when seeking pledges from friends, family and neighbors.  Please do not solicit donations from strangers.
