Fun Run Help Needed
THE CLAXTON FUN RUN
We’re raising funds for the Claxton PTO to support programs such as the playground initiative, teacher grants, classroom supplies, A+ Arts Cultural Events, and so much more!
This year’s FALL MAIN FUNDRAISER is the Claxton Fun Run! Hosting a Fun Run means there is no selling or delivering products. Family and friends anywhere in the world can support our school by giving pledges toward the number of laps your student will run on the day of the Fun Run on October 15th, Thursday during the school day!
Pep Rally- October 6th- Claxton Gym
K-2nd Grade- 1:15pm
3-5th- Grade- 2pm
Fun Run Day- October 15th- Memorial Stadium (above McCormick Baseball Field)
K-2nd Grade- 9:15am
3-5th Grade- 10:15am
Our Fun Run program will last about 2 weeks—from October 6th- October 15th. Students will experience an exciting Pep Rally, families will have time to get pledges, and on the last day, students will run in the Fun Run! Every student, no matter financial participation, is invited to run in the Fun Run.
