UPDATE: Due to forecasted rain, Summit’s Fun Run will now be held on Monday, May 15 from 9:00-9:30 a.m.
The school year may be winding down but we are gearing up for one of the biggest events at Summit this year – the Summit Fun Run: Level Up! will be held on Friday, May 12. The Mario-themed Fun Run will be held on the nearby Harding Middle School’s track. Rain date is Monday, May 15.
This is Summit’s spring FUNdraiser with a BIG goal – $55,000! Visit the fundraising site HERE. ALL students are encouraged to participate in Summit’s Fun Run.
The Fun Run incorporates Summit’s educational goal of healthy living and making healthy choices, and also raises money for the school we love. The first $40,000 raised will fulfill our fundraising goal of $100,000 for this school year. All funds beyond that will go towards returning Summit staff signing bonuses and additional professional development next year. Our teachers and staff choose to work at Summit knowing that they could make more money in a public school system or in the private sector. But they choose to work here because of the impact they can make on the lives of your children at Summit as they work to fulfill Summit’s mission. We are SO appreciative of the monetary sacrifice they make and we are constantly trying to find ways to thank them and give back to them.
Fun Run Details:
Each student will receive a complimentary student-designed Fun Run T-shirt. Submit your child(ren)’s T-shirt size here by Friday, April 21. Extra T-shirts can be ordered for purchase for family (all proceeds benefit the Summit Fun Run!)
Please ensure students wear tennis shoes the day of the run. Summit students will enjoy activities throughout the school day. Summit welcomes parents/family/friends to cheer on their runners and classmates (bring those signs of support!) during the all-school Fun Run from 9:00-9:30 a.m.
