APEX FUN RUN IS COMING TO
ALBERTA SMITH ELEMENTARY!
We are so excited to announce that our school will be participating in the Apex Fun Run this year as our major fundraiser! The Apex program will be with our students from OCTOBER 17-28 teaching leadership and fitness as we raise pledges to help our school. Please look in your child’s folder and e-mails that will be sent to you from your teachers as the fun run gets nearer.
Please feel free to visit www.apexfunrun.com to learn about this interactive program that helps schools all over the country raise money, while promoting leadership and fitness. This year’s character theme is Apex Legends, where students will follow Tikes, Seeds, Specs, Jazz, and Wheels through the pages of their legendary adventure to discover JJ Cortez’s hidden treasure. Along the way these five friends discover what it truly means to be a Legendary leader:
Learn, Engage, Give, Empower, Never Quit, Do
During the Apex Fun Run, students are challenged to get pledges for the laps they will run on Thursday, October 27th to help our school. Students will run for 30 minutes and will run an average 26-36 laps, with the maximum amount of laps being 36 (each lap is 1/16th of a mile). Sponsors can pledge $1/lap, $2/lap, $5/lap, or any other amount for students. All participants will receive an access code that allows you to enter pledges online. All students will receive Apex bands, race-day lap counters, and team awards. We will need your help in the following four ways:
Help connect your child to potential sponsors and help them acquire pledges from family, friends and contacts.
Ask your child about the “Apex Legend” character lessons, and download the “Apex Fun Run” App!
Come to the Apex Fun Run and don’t forget to invite others to attend our fun-filled community event.
Help volunteer for the race! We need a few parents to help cheer on students and mark laps. If you would like to volunteer for your student’s race, please contact Jennifer Lahm at firstname.lastname@example.org.
