Apex Fun Run Begins September 17th!
Bear Branch Elementary School will be participating in the Apex Fun Run as the PTO's major fall fundraiser! The program begins with a Pep Rally on Tuesday, September 18th. Please be on the lookout for Apex Pledge Kits that will be coming home with students.
Apex Fun Run is an interactive leadership program that helps schools all over the country raise funds, while promoting leadership, good character, and fitness. This year's theme is Apex STRONG! Students will join the Apex Squad on an exciting journey as they learn what it truly means to be strong as a team.
During the Apex Fun Run Program, students are challenged to get pledges for the laps they will run on Thursday, September 27th during specials to help our school. Students will run for 30 minutes and will run an average of 26-36 laps around the Apex Raceway. The maximum number of laps is 36 and each lap is 1/16th of a mile. Through Apex's top-notch online pledging system, sponsors can pledge $1/lap, $2/lap, $5/lap, or any other amount for students and pledge from anywhere in the world!
This year we are raising funds to pay for an Extreme Playground Makeover. The playground will be completed in phases, and the first phase to completed (as voted on at the latest PTO Meeting) will be a new track!
There will be volunteer opportunities for the Fun Run! We will need a few individuals to help cheer on students and mark laps, hand out water, etc. If you're interested, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
