PTA Apex Fun Run Fundraiser

Apex Fun Run is coming to our school from April 11th-April 20th! The kids had fun meeting the Apex team! The pledge kit was sent home earlier this week that includes their unique Access Code to log pledges online at www.apexfunrun.com. Be on the lookout for emails coming from your teachers also!

Our donation collections will all be done online through the Apex website www.apexfunrun.com to make the collection process easier and faster. Of course, sponsors can still pay by cash/check if they choose, we just ask that these donations be turned into the school any time before the Fun Run, so that students receive credit.

The video link below is a 2-minute video that explains the different ways your student can get a pledge. #apexfunrun #buildingleaders
