This is the Stough PTA's largest fundraiser of the year and it involves the entire Stough community inside and outside of the school. On October 20, all students take the playground loop at their designated time to run, walk and dance their laps to raise money for Stough PTA programs throughout the year. They are cheered on by friends and family standing on the sidelines and enjoy music, warm ups and goodies provided by Kicks Taekwondo. EACH student in the school, along with ALL staff, receive a Stough Fun Run T-shirt featuring our sponsors. This is one of our sweetest Stough Stallion traditions where our community comes together to show pride, support and gratitude for our school and our mission.
In the two weeks leading up to the event students are invited to seek the support of friends, neighbors, families and the community to help raise money leading up to the event. Friday, Oct. 6 begins our FUN RUN KICKOFF! Students will leave school with donation envelopes in their Friday Folders. We can accept donations through cash or check (to be returned in the envelopes) or thorough online donations (click HERE and use the student's name in the dedication if you wish). Each student bringing in a donation of ANY amount will be eligible for a DAILY prize drawing at school beginning the week of Oct. 16.
The Monday of Fun Run Week (10/16) ignites excitement in the halls as students listen for their daily grade level prize drawing over the announcements leading up to Friday, Oct. 20 when students will hit the playground at their grade designated time. On Fun Run Friday, each student receives a Stough Fun Run T-shirt featuring our sponsors. Pssst. Our shirts this year are awesome.
This event is about the strength of our school and all we can do when we partner together. There are MANY ways to support our students!
The Stough PTA provides support to benefit the entire school ranging from cultural arts programs, staff appreciation and support, classroom supplies, media center materials and more. When we invest in our students through our donations, our awareness, our attention, our conversations and our involvement they are more likely to invest in themselves. This is THEIR school and they deserve the support of families, staff, businesses and the entire community standing behind them. We firmly believe that when we partner together this leads to the success of our students and the success of us all.
