By the Belmont PTO & Friends
Belmont kicked off its annual Fun Run fundraiser event Monday, with presentations by event organizer, Donatezone.
This week, students started to collect pledge donations for the fundraising event, which will be held Friday, March 8. The day long walking / running experience will end with a Color Blast, before kids go home. This will be sure to have kids smiling as they greet parents at the end of the day next week.
Proceeds from the fundraiser will go back into the classrooms. Students may even have a chance to help decide how the fundraiser money will be used.
There are many incentives for students, to encourage them to participate in fundraising. Each day, two top earners will be awarded a special coupon or prize box item. They will be the King or Queen of the day and will be announced on the morning announcements. The king and queen even get’s to wear a crown for the day!
All elementary students will be allowed to participate in the run. These students and participating secondary students will receive a T-Shirt. In order to fund the t-shirts, the PTO is selling online advertisement space to local businesses. Every time the fundraiser is shared on facebook or Instagram, there is a possibility that the ad will be seen!
The best part for parents is that two volunteer hours will be given to any person who turns in an advertisement sale from a local business. The cost of the advertisement is $150 and will run for the duration of our two week event. If you sell one, email the information and logo to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. You can check out the event details at www.donatezone.com. We look forward to this awesome event!
