1. What is the Fun Run?
The Fun Run is a 9-day program and is Foundation's one fundraiser, taking place on Wednesday, November 20th. Families will be getting pledges for the laps their student runs at the Fun Run. Funds raised from this event go toward replacing the Classroom Laptops, iPads and Charging Carts (learn more HERE)!
2. How can parents register their student(s)?
First, parents log in or sign up on FUNRUN.COM. Then, parents can register their student as a participant on FUNRUN.COM by searching for the school by name. Students get a FREE prize just for being registered.
3. How can students get pledges?
Parents can help connect students to sponsors by sharing their pledge link on Facebook, through email, or even a text. Sponsors can enter and pay for those pledges online through your student’s pledge link!
4. Will my student really run 30 laps? How big is the track?
Yes, even kindergarteners! The Fun Run track is about 1/16th of a mile, 1/4 the size of a normal high school track. The average student will run 30-35 laps and will have a goal to run at least 30 laps to help their school. The most any student will be counted for is 35 laps.
5. Can students receive a prize for flat donations?
Yes! All flat donations count toward pledges and are rounded by 30 (the average student will run over 30 laps). So, a $30 donation is the same as $1 per lap. A $60 donation is the same as $2 per lap, etc.
6. What if families don’t have Internet?
If a student’s family does not have Internet access, parents and families can use the Pledgebook to record all pledges and send in the payment with the Pledgebook. If students turn their pledge and payment into their teacher, please make sure student and teacher names are listed on the Pledgebook.
7. How do sponsors pay?
Sponsors will be prompted to pay online for all pledges, even per lap pledges. Sponsors will receive an email after the run with the amount of their payment based on how many laps were run.
8. Can I make a pledge if I don’t want to pay online?
YES! You can either turn in the payment for a pledge listed on the Pledgebook, or you can request to turn off online payments for your account through our help desk on FUNRUN.COM.
9. Can I Write A Check? For pledges not made on FUNRUN.COM, you can still turn in cash or check. Please make checks out to: Mountain View Foundation.
YOU’RE INVITED TO CHEER ON YOUR STUDENT!
