Support Cedar Mill Elementary by donating to our annual Fun Run!

PTC Event Calendar

Updated weekly. Contact us if you have any questions.

Your Cedar Mill PTC Board is excited to launch our 2022-23 Annual Fun Run Fundraiser. This event is the PTC's only fundraiser, and will help support a wide variety of programs that directly benefit the staff and students of Cedar Mill Elementary School. Our goal is to raise $30,000 to supplement the surplus funds remaining from the last few years of the pandemic. Any amount donated is greatly appreciated and helps make a greater impact on every student.

HOW IT WORKS: All students, Kindergarten through Fifth grade, earn money for our school by collecting donations from friends and family via an easy online service for their participation in the school wide Fun Run (flat donation or per lap). Sign-up instructions are below.

 

The run is organized by grade and lasts for 20 minutes. Students can choose to run, jog or walk. Most kids complete 10-15 laps. Event schedule to follow.

 

WAYS TO GIVE:

  1. Encourage your students to collect online pledges from friends, family, neighbors, and coworkers. Pledges must be submitted by October 6.
  2. Check with your employer to see if they match donations. A partial list of participating companies is below.
  3. Volunteer for the event – it truly is a day of FUN!!
