STM Knights Virtual 5K Fund Run

$15 Registration ends November 8, 2020 at 11:59pm EST
Place
As this is a virtual 5K, participants will choose to run, walk, or bike the 5K course of their choice. We will not be meeting at STM School for this event. We encourage you to participate any place you like!
Description

Run, walk, or bike our virtual 5K anytime between Friday, November 6th and Sunday, November 8th to raise money for St. Thomas More Catholic School (STM). Our goal is to have 100% student and staff participation and to raise at least $40,000. 

All money raised will be used to benefit students and staff at STM. Academic Enrichment materials such as a musical instrument per student, art printing presses, new writing and math programs, and online resource subscriptions will be funded. Teacher appreciation, COVID safety precautions, classroom resources, expansion of our outdoor sun shade areas, and playground improvements will also be funded from money raised during the STM Fund Run.

The Home & School Association is unable to have its largest in-person fundraiser, the annual Auction & Gala, this year due to COVID restrictions. We are hoping the revenue generated by the STM Knights Virtual 5K Fund Run will replace the Auction & Gala's lost revenue. 

We encourage you to register your entire family to participate, and please share the donation link with friends and family. The registration amount and any donations given, less credit card processing fees, will be tax-deductible. Sponsorship of this event is also tax-deductible. Please see below and email stmhsa.comm@gmail.com to become an event sponsor.

Dri-fit event tee-shirts are available for order NOW-October 22nd (https://stthomasmorekb2601.itemorder.com/sale). STM students are encouraged to wear their race tee-shirt on Spirit Wear Wednesdays this school year.

We want to see your pictures as you prepare for the event and run, walk, or bike the fund run. Send your photos to stmhsa.comm@gmail.com. Our Facebook page will be going live soon and we'd love to add your pictures! 

Thank you for your support!

 

Individual and Class Prizes

Our fundraising goal of $40,000 is very attainable if each family donates a comparable amount to what they would spend to take their family out for a nice event. As a point of reference, we will raise over $30,000 if each student raises at least $100. We recognize that some students will raise more and some students will raise less than $100 each; overall, we hope it averages out to be at least $100 per student.

Individual Prizes

  • Students will receive a promotional race event sticker upon registering from their homeroom teacher.
  • Students who raise $50 will receive a silicone event wristband from their homeroom teacher that can be worn at school.
  • Students who raise $100+ will receive an event theme cup with candy and a free dress down day pass from their homeroom teacher.
  • We will divide the amount raised per family by the number of students in the family to determine how much each student raised in donations. Families have the option to collect cash and check donations from friends and family (yellow donation sheet and return envelope went home via kidmail the week of October 5th). Alternatively, parents can direct friends and family to make a donation on the main Donation page of the race website. Please be sure to return the yellow donation sheet and any cash/check donations collected NO LATER THAN Thursday, November 5th.

Class Prizes

  • The first homeroom class to reach 100% participation (all students register to participate in the 5K) will receive a free dress down day.
  • As each homeroom class reaches 100% participation (all students register to participate in the 5K) the class will choose between an in-school movie for a half-day, extra recess, or a free night of no homework. The prize and date of reward will be agreed upon with the teacher. 
  • The homeroom class that raises the most money will receive a week of free dress down days. Dates will be prearranged with the teacher and the administration.
