Edison Eagle Run

The Eagle Run is Edison’s annual run-a-thon fundraiser and will take place during school on September 27, 2019. This exciting fundraiser will focus on team-building, health, fitness and reaching personal goals. 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 get as many pledges as they can to help us all reach our goals! This year our goal is to raise $35,000 or $45 per student. The top pledge earner AND two randomly selected winners who have raised at least $10.00 in pledges will win Dick’s Sporting Goods Gift Certificates. Look for your pledge sheets to come home the first week of September.

How do we participate?

Your student’s pledge sheet will be sent home in Thursday folders. ECE and Kinder students’ pledge sheets ask for lump sum donations only. Pledge sheets for grades 1-5 have both a per-lap and lump sum option. Students are encouraged to collect pledges from family, neighbors, friends, co-workers, etc.

On September 27 th , all 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 20). Their laps will be tallied after the run and the rest of their day will resume as usual.

Students will begin running at the following times:

5th grade – 8:55
4th grade – 9:40
ECE – 10:25
3rd grade – 11:05
1st grade – 1:25
Kindergarten – 2:10
2nd grade – 2:45

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 until November 15th when all pledge sheets are due back to school.
