Color Fun Run
October 5, 2017
The Color Fun Run is the first of the FJMS fundraisers. This is an event designed to promote school spirit and encourage a healthy lifestyle while raising much-needed funds for our school. Our students will be seeking sponsors to help raise money for classroom technology. If each student raises even just $25 we will be able to raise over $20,000 for our technology needs.
To raise the level of excitement, we will be treating our runners to an optional “color lap.” After 15 minutes of running, students who wish to participate will be invited to do an additional lap while crepe paper streamers are are thrown overhead to create a rainbow effect. The run will take place on Thursday, October 5th from 11 to 11:30am on the Joe Michell softball fields. We hope that you will be able to join us and maybe even consider making a sign to cheer on the runners.We ask that each student collect pledges for technology in the classrooms. This year students will be running for 20 min and flat fee donations will be collected. The last lap will involve a rainbow color celebrations with parents and spectators showing our students with streamers. Each grade level will be asked to wear their color shirts to run in. Families encouraged to come and cheer their students on and celebrate the heath and wellness of our school and community!
For our Color Fun Run this year, we’re using an awesome web based fundraising system that makes it much easier for you to request pledges from your family and friends, and for them to make secure credit card donations online. It’s fun, it’s easy, and people who use it typically raise twice as much as those who don’t! Remember, our Color Fun Run is October 5, so please register now to help our school raise as much as we can for our classroom technology:

When you finish, the system emails pledge requests to your family and friends, and allows them to make secure credit card donations online. You get notified each time a pledge is made, and you can track your pledge progress online.

Note: If you have multiple runners, all donations will be split evenly between them.
