Coyote Creek Scurry Fun Run

School Families!

It is Kick Off week for our Coyote Creek Scurry Fun Run fundraiser and we are thrilled about this year’s program! We’ve asked the fundraising experts at Booster to power our Fun Run program, making our fundraising simpler, more profitable, and more FUN. Our Fun Run includes EVERY student in a fun, fitness event that focuses on character while helping our school raise some much-needed funds.

Heres how you can support Coyote Creek:

  • Register your student on FUNRUN.COM by searching “Coyote Creek.” Then, use FUNRUN.COM to log donations for your student(s).
  • Reach out to family and friends by SHARING your Students Pledge Page. With FUNRUN.COM's smart sharing tools, reaching out to sponsors is easier than ever. The easiest way to get donations is to simply click the Facebook share button on your student’s pledge page. Plus, with a few clicks you can create a custom Student Star Video to share on social media. You can also use the Easy Emailer to connect with friends and family.
  • Ask your child about the Sports City Now Character Lesson of the Day! It’s a fitness theme all about inspiring students to be active and activate their character. Students will travel the country learning how to live and play with more character from REAL kid-athletes. Our dynamic, documentary-style videos will teach your students about Teamwork, Care, Courage, Grit, and Celebration. Join along by watching the fun character videos with your student(s) on FUNRUN.COM.
