Will my student really run 30 laps? How big is the track?
Yes, even kindergarteners! However, your child will actually be running at the Cooper HS track this year.  Our goal is 30 little laps…which translates to 5 big laps on the Cooper track.  Kids can run more than 5 big laps, but sponsors won’t be charged for more than 30 little laps.  Kids will basically run/walk for 25 minutes.

Can students receive a prize for flat donations?
Yes! All flat donations count toward pledges and are rounded by 30 (the average student will run 30 laps). So, a $30 donation is the same as $1 per lap. A $60 donation is the same as $2 per lap, etc.

What if families don’t have Internet?
If a student’s family does not have Internet access, parents and families can use the pledgebook to record all pledges. If students turn their pledgebook into their teacher, please make sure student and class name are listed on the front.

Can sponsors pay for pledges online?
YES! Sponsors have the option to pay online. Only pledges that have an email address entered with the pledge can be paid online. Make sure sponsors know they should enter a valid email address. The day after the Fun Run event, sponsors will receive an email with payment options.

When is the pledge money due?
Pledge money is due on September 22nd. Families have one week to collect their pledges after the Fun Run.

How is money collected?
