ABOUT THE FUN RUN

Our main spring fundraiser is the LAKEVIEW FUN RUN! Hosting a Fun Run means there is no selling or delivering products. Family and friends anywhere in the world can support our school by giving pledges toward the number of laps (30-35) your student will run on the day of the Fun Run on Friday, May 10th.

Our Fun Run program will last about 2 weeks—from April 30th – May 10th. Students will experience an exciting Pep Rally, students & families will have time to get pledges, and on the last day, students will run in the Fun Run! Every student, no matter financial participation, is invited to run in the Fun Run.

WHY WE RUN

The Lakeview Elementary PTO is sponsoring the Fun Run to raise funds for the Lakeview staffs’ future grant requests. With the funds raised last year we were able to approve the following grant requests: School Patrol vests & flags, student planners & take-home folders, Kindergarten field trip, RAZ Kids membership, Nancy Carlson visit, art display cases, headphones w/ built-in microphones, additional seating options in classrooms, and more! Visit our Lakeview PTO fundraising page for more information on grant requests approved this year https://www.lakeviewpto.org/fundraising.


FUNDRAISING GOAL

Our 2019 Fun Run earnings goal is $30,000. All of this year’s fund-raising efforts will allow the Lakeview Elementary PTO to support amazing programs, opportunities and supplies requested by the Lakeview staff.


INCENTIVES

    • Daily prizes distributed to students based on pledges collected.
    • Additional challenges will be announced during the pledge week and will be provided on the daily announcements, posted for families in schoology, facebook & lakeviewpto.org.
    • Principle Challenge: if the school meets its $30,000 financial goal Mr. Otterson will run with the kids while wearing Vikings gear!
    • Classroom Challenge: the class that collects the most pledges will receive a grilled hot dog party with Mr. Otterson as the guest chef (wearing Vikings gear!). All pledges must be collected by May 17th to be eligible.


PLEDGE COLLECTIONS

For the 2019 Lakeview Fun Run we are encouraging all sponsor donations be submitted online instead of via cash or check. Boosterthon does charge an additional $2 electronic processing fee online. The PTO is not in charge of these fees or their administration. We apologize if it causes any inconvenience. We've decided to use an online only payment option for the following reasons:

1. To minimize the time our parents & family have to spend collecting sponsor cash and check donations once the run is completed.

2. To reduce the time our teachers need to spend running reports and sending collection reminders home with students, as well as, avoid having them worry about having large sums of money in their classrooms.

3. Due to low volunteership an online payment only option minimizes the need for a parent volunteer to collect and enter check & cash payments daily.


VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

Help make this year’s Fun Run event a success and consider volunteering. We will need volunteers to help hand our daily prizes, sort & distribute t-shirts/Fun Run informational materials, distribute water to students during the fun run. A SignupGenius will be posted in Schoology, Lakeview PTO Facebook page & at www.lakeviewpto.org listing the Fun Run volunteer opportunities.
