2017 Sponsors


Go Big or Go Home

The 13th Annual Sand Creek Fun Run will be held on Friday, September 15th.  Our theme this year is "Go Big or Go Home"!  Our FUNdraising goal for the 2017 Fun Run is $50,000.  Last year we raised over $43,000.  In order to reach our fundraising goal, we NEED your help!  Every donation counts. 

Proceeds from this event will go back into our school supporting school curriculum, school instructional needs, and ultimately help keep our class sizes small.

The event will be held at the school during your child's specials class.  Please check the SCE and PTO web pages for schedules.  Every student will have the opportunity to run or walk for 40 minutes during specials and again at recess time if they choose.  They will also have an additional 30 minute time period.  Each lap of the field is 1/4 mile.

All students will be encouraged to run or walk as much as possible to earn their class the title of the "Golden Shoe" award.  The class that records the most laps during the day will get the "Golden Shoe" for the year.  Students attended a special assembly today where they learned about individual prizes they can earn by getting sponsors to pledge donations to the school. You can learn more about these prizes under on the web page.  

We can achieve this year's goal if each student can collect $116 in pledges.  With everyone's support, this could make a big difference in reaching our fundraising GOAL!

Many companies offer a corporate match program.  Please consider asking your company to match your child's pledges.  This could help your child achieve a higher prize level and help us reach our goal.  We can provide you with a letter from Mr. Ranford if it is required by your company.  Sand Creek's tax exempt number is 84-6011446.
