1. WHAT IS IT? 
The Fun Run is a Spring Valley Elementary PTA fundraiser. Students collect donations and turn them in over a four-week period, receive awesome fun thank you prizes, and participate in a Fun Run during their PE time on October 26, 2017.
 
2. WHY? 
In lieu of traditional fundraisers and direct donations campaigns, the Spring Valley Elementary PTA has decided to host a Bee Healthy MyPlate Fun Run that supports healthy lifestyles and fun fundraising.  By doing so we hope to have:
  • 100% participation where every child is included despite the ability to raise funds.
  • Have 95% of the money go directly to Spring Valley versus traditional fundraisers where we only keep 50%
  • Encourage the kids to be healthy and accomplish something amazing.
 
3. WHO CAN DONATE? 
Students are encouraged to ask their parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, neighbors, family friends, or anyone else who cares about their education, to contribute to the fun run. A sponsor letter is enclosed with sample wording for each student to send to their sponsors explaining our school goal. A quick and efficient way to reach a large number of people is through e-mail. Create a list of out-of-town and/or local friends and family and tell them about our Spring Valley Elementary Fun Run. Let them know that they are not being asked to buy anything. This fundraiser is totally different!
 
4. HOW DO THEY SPONSOR? 
There are two ways for student to collect donations. The first way is through your child’s individual website, which can be found in this packet. You can also go to http://sve.myfunrun.com Click on “Donate to a participant" on the right and do a search for your child. The second way is to collect checks made out to Spring Valley Elementary PTA – please make sure you put your student’s name on the check, so we can credit the money to them, on their website.  Students should have all their donations by November 1st.
 
5. HOW MUCH DO WE NEED TO RAISE? 
We have a goal set for $60 per student, however, there are great prizes for the students that raise the most money.
 
6. HOW DO THE PRIZES WORK? 
Every student regardless of participation receives a Spring Valley Elementary shirt, and a goodie bag.  Students earn prizes based on the total donations received, including matching funds.
 
7. WHEN IS THE ACTUAL FUN RUN EVENT? 
October 26th, 2017. This event is put on by the Spring Valley Elementary PTA. That means You! We can’t make this event happen without many volunteers. Please consider volunteering! Volunteer opportunities include distributing water and handing out certificates of completion, encouraging the students, handing out shirts and having fun. More information will come before the event.
