Gator Gallop Fundraising is Under Way!
We are SO EXCITED that the Gator Gallop Fun Run is BACK this year!!! The 2022 Gator Gallop is currently scheduled for Friday, October 7, 2022, with a rain date of October 6th.
Each grade level will walk, skip, gallop, dance and limbo their way through a course set-up outside during school hours. The Gator Gallop is a safe and healthy way for Geist Elementary students to raise money for the one-and-only school fundraiser instead of door-to-door selling. Our goal is to obtain or surpass $50 in pledges per student and all money received will be used in support of the school! This is such an important fundraiser for Geist Elementary, and we need your help to make it a success! Please set-up an online donation account for your child by following the steps below!
1. Go to https://geist.myfunrun.com/
2. Click on “Register to Run”
3. Simply fill out the info for your child and a page will be created for them!
*If you have more than one child attending Geist Elementary, please create separate logins and pages for each student so that we can track their fundraising goals individually.
Should you have any questions, please contact Andrea Wright at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Easy Ways to Support GES!
Do you shop at Amazon or Kroger? If so, there is an easy way to donate a portion or percentage of your purchases to Geist Elementary. Although the percentage may seem small, the total amount back to GES adds up significantly the more people that register! These rewards programs do not cost anything to sign-up and are easy to register by using the following steps:
Amazon: Anytime you make a purchase on Amazon, go to Amazon Smile to shop at www.smile.amazon.com. Choose Geist Elementary PTO, Inc as your supporting organization and GES will receive 0.5% of your total purchases.
Kroger: Register your Kroger Plus Card at www.Kroger.com/account/enrollCommunityRewardsNow. Then, sign into your Kroger account and link your card to GES’s organization number which is GU130. Then, shop and swipe your Kroger Plus Card at the checkout and GES will earn cash! We had about 140 registered cards last quarter and GES earned over $4400 last year!
Thank you for registering and giving back through these programs!
