The Run-a-thon is an opportunity for the Lawton community to come together for back to school fun, and also to give back to the school and greater community. It is important that our students understand what it means to be an upstander in the community and learn to help others in need. The event is a fundraiser that splits the proceeds between the two following organizations.
Registration is FREE (you register by setting up a fundraising page here). This is a fundraising event, thus each Lawton student that is participating will set a fundraising goal as part of their registration. For younger children (K-2) we recommend a goal of $50. For older children (3-5), we recommend a goal of $75. The total for each child will go toward their class total. The top class will win a Yost Ice Arena Skating party field trip with popcorn and hot chocolate! The top class in each grade level for the most "weight" for Kash for Kids will win a popsicle party!
4 Great Ways to Fundraise!
- Individual Fundraising TEAM Pages: When the kids register, they will create their own fundraising webpage to invite family and friends who can donate in that child's name (or anonymously). This will go toward their class total! The top class will win a pizza party!
- "Kash for Kids": Starting on September 15th, kids can bring in lose change to donate to the cause. The top class in each grade level for the most "weight" in cash will win a popsicle party!
- Old School: Kids will be given a donation form at our kick off assembly on September 15th. We hope they will each a walk/run goal for themselves (walk/run in one or all 3 events!) and ask friend and family to support them. This donations will go toward the class total raised online and the top class will win a Yost Ice Arena Skating party field trip with popcorn and hot chocolate and get to officially present the final check to the John Crosby Foundation! Download the Donation form here (by bringing this form, along with donations collected, to the registration able at the Run-a-thon on Oct. 6th, it will count as the child's registration).
