The 2017 Eagle Run is just around the corner!

Mark your calendars for September 22 — that’s the day of Edison’s second annual Eagle Run!

This exciting run-a-thon fundraiser focuses on team-building, health, fitness and reaching personal goals. Taking place during the school day on Sept. 22, all Edison students are encouraged to participate, set goals, cheer on their classmates, and run as many 1/8-mile laps as they can during the run.

Students are also encouraged to collect as many pledges as they can, which will help us reach our goals and fund valuable Edison projects! This year’s goal is to raise $20,000, and it will be raised through pledges for each lap run, as well as lump-sum donations.

Here’s how it works:

  • Pledge sheets will go home with your child in their Thursday folder on August 31. ECE and Kinder students’ pledge sheets will ask for lump sum donations only. Pledge sheets for grades 1-5 will have both a per-lap and lump-sum option. Students are encouraged to collect pledges from family, neighbors, friends, co-workers, etc. over the next three weeks.
  • On September 22, all participating students will wear their Edison T-shirt, bring a water bottle, and join their classmates to run as many 1/8-mile laps as they can in 25 minutes (ECE and Kinder will run for 15 minutes). Their laps will be tallied after the run, and the rest of their day will resume as usual.
  • Students will be sent home with their lap number and can then put it on their pledge sheets and collect pledges in cash, check, or online payments until October 6, when all pledge sheets are due back to school.

Help Edison raise money to benefit classroom needs, Enrichment Day and Edison Earnings and more! Encourage your student to collect pledges, set a goal, run…and HAVE FUN!
