Q: Can I submit donations using check or cash?
A: Yes! Each student will receive a paper envelope to collect checks or cash and should return them to school by September 16 to count toward prizes and awards. Checks should be made out to WME PTO. You can also print the online form on the Home page and turn in with payment.
Q: Do I donate a flat amount or sponsor per lap?
A: You can donate either way! Some families donate a flat amount as well as sponsor per lap, but it is up to you which way you would like to donate.
Q: Is there a difference between an online donation and a paper form donation?
A: No! All donations, whether using a credit card, check or cash, count the same toward prizes and awards.
Q: Can I share this website with grandparents and family who want to donate?
A: Yes! Please share the website link with any family or friends who would like to donate or sponsor a student for the Fun Run. Just make sure they complete the form with the student’s name. Family can also donate via check or cash using the donation envelope.
Q: Can I make multiple payments to split up my total donation?
A: Yes! The donation site is available beginning in July and families can begin making donations from now until the end of the fundraiser, September 16. All donations will count toward prizes, awards and total fundraising goals.
Q: Is there a transaction fee for using my credit card?
A: As a courtesy for this fundraiser, there is not an additional fee for using your credit card for your donation.
Q: How long will the fun run take?
A: The Fun Run event will be held on Friday, September 9 during school hours. Classes will receive two run times to be on the field running laps.
Q: How many laps will students run?
A: While each student is different, we have an estimate per grade for how many laps they may run based on last years run. The run course is .2 of a mile.
Kindergarten: 18-25 laps
1st–3rd grade: 24-32 laps
4th–5th grade: 28-40 laps
Q: How will laps be tracked?
A: Each student will receive a run bib the day of the event. A designated parent volunteer at the finish line will mark on their bib each lap they complete. The total laps number will be sent home for parents to calculate donation if sponsoring per lap.
Q: Is my information submitted private?
A: All information submitted is kept confidential and private. Email addresses are only used for confirmation of donation and will not be used for other purposes.
