Cedar Park 5K Fundraiser Run

It's time to get down to business, Cedar Park. The current budget realities of the state of Oregon have forced every Beaverton school to see a reduction of their operating budget. While we were lucky enough to avoid the drastic staff cuts, there is now a smaller pot to fund supplies, support, and staff innovation here at Cedar Park.

That's where we step in.

The CPMS 5K is our ONLY PTC fundraiser for the entire year with a lofty goal of $50K. We need the students to set up their 5K online fundraising pages! It's super easy to do, and all you have to do is follow this link to set up your student's online Firstgiving page. Then spread the word by sharing to friends and family on Facebook, or other social media sites.

How does it work?

Students earn money for our school through flat donations. All students will run, jog, or walk during their class' scheduled time with the goal of completing a 5K.

All of the money collected from this event stays at Cedar Park Middle School, supporting the Cedar Park Parent Teacher Club. All your logistical questions can be answered at

What projects are supported by the Cedar Park PTC?

Classroom Supplies, Teacher Grants, Robotics Workshops, After School Programs, Battle of the Books, Art Literacy, Outdoor School, Local Collegiate Visits, and Community Family Night (just to name a few). Our full PTC budget can be found at
