Mini Marathon Information

Mini Marathon 2.62 mile Run/Walk “FUN”draiser!

Is everyone ready for something new and exciting at Manila Elementary?  It is our first annual Mini Marathon Fundraiser!  In order to help raise the greatest amount of money to “RUN” the many wonderful programs at our school, the PTA has organized a Mini Marathon Fun Run/Walk.  For starters, the fundraiser allows us to keep 100% of the money donated and it is a tax deductible donation.  Every dollar you donate will be used exclusively for programs here at Manila Elementary! Second, the fun run/walk encourages physical activity, school spirit, school unity and most of all…FUN!  If we can reach our goal of $5,000, any money collected above our goal will be donated to the school for classroom audio enhancement systems.

Here are ways to join in the “FUN”draising:

1- This event is not only for the students, but for the entire family! FUN can happen at any speed, so whether you prefer to walk or run…..just make sure you register.

To register for the fun run, go to:   http://www.events.org/cpage.aspx?e=27921

2-If you are unable to participate in the fun run but would still like to help us raise funds, you can make donations online or through a family donation packet.

Each family has been given ONE manila envelope to collect their donations in.  Don’t worry about your kids trying to each earn stuff, we are only offering family entries, not individual children.  Your family will have until Wed. Sept 15th to collect donations from parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts and friends.

Every dollar counts!  We aren’t selling anything, but support for our school!

(For safety, please don’t let the students go door to door collecting.)
DONATIONS IN THE ENVELOPE ARE SEPARATE THAN FUN RUN REGISTRATION.  PLEASE REGISTER FOR THE FUN RUN ONLINE. IF YOU FILLED OUT A GREEN REGISTRATION SHEET AT BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHT, DON’T PUT IT IN THE ENVELOPE.  SEND THAT TO SCHOOL A.S.A.P.  ONLY DONATIONS FOR THE SCHOOL ARE TO BE PUT IN THE MANILA ENVELOPES.  THESE DONATIONS ARE WHAT DECIDE THE NUMBER OF ‘PRIZE ENTRIES’ YOUR FAMILY WILL EARN.

Over the summer the PTA has been gathering donations as well. J

We’ve collected some UH-MAY-ZING prizes!

Each family can earn tickets for the drawing in several ways:

1 ticket for registering for the race.

1 ticket for turning in your donation envelope.

1 ticket for $20.00 in donations

2 tickets for $35.00 in donations

3 tickets for $50.00 in donations

1 ticket for each additional $15.00 in donations
