Description

Come out in person this year to run or walk the 5K to raise money for St. Thomas More Catholic School (STM). If you are unable to attend the race in person, you may still register your family and participate virtually! Our goal is to have 100% student and staff participation and to raise $45,000. 

All money raised will be used to benefit students and staff at STM. The money will fund the Home & School Association's (HSA) operating budget which includes academic enrichment, teacher appreciation, professional development, social events and classroom support/materials. The Fund Run is 100% parent-run and the school receives 100% of the money raised!

The HSA will also be having a spring fundraiser, but the Fund Run and Hallowfest will be the school's big fall fundraisers. 

PLEASE NOTE: YOU MUST ORDER A T-SHIRT BY OCTOBER 11th!! YOU MUST GO TO A SEPARATE SITE TO ORDER THESE!! NO EXCEPTIONS AS THE ORDER MUST BE PLACED ON OCTOBER 11TH!! ORDER THEM HERE!!

We encourage you to register your entire family to participate, and please share the donation link with friends and family, near and far! 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.

We are so excited to have this event in person for the first time, and it is sure to be a fun event for the entire family!

Thank you for your support!

 

Individual and Class Prizes

Our fundraising goal of $45,000 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 $40,000 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 Knights keychain from their homeroom teacher that can be placed on backpacks.
  • 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 will go home via kidmail the week of September 26th). 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 Wednesday October 26th.

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.
