Fun Run FAQs
Q: What IS Fun Run?
Fun Run is PTA’s primary fundraiser of the year. It is also a schoolwide event will take place during the school day on Friday, October 14th.
Q: What happens at the Fun Run event?
The students will participate in Fun Run during their specials period on Friday, October 14th.For half the time, they will run laps (that will be tallied on a wristband toward earning class level prizes)—and for the other half, they will be challenged by a Ninja Nation obstacle course. It’s a very fun day — the kids love it!! Note that only students who have a signed waiver will be allowed on the ninja nation course, so please be sure yours is completed!
Q: Can I attend?
Yes, parents are invited and encouraged to attend! You can come cheer on your child and even take part in a parent lap or two if you’d like to run. There will also be volunteer opportunities available at friscoisd.voly.org, where you can sign up to help!
Q: What should my child wear?
Every student will receive a grade level shirt, provided by PTA and our partners. This shirt should be worn at Fun Run and will also be used for other events and field trips throughout the year. They’ll also want to wear comfortable athletic shoes.
Q: How do I donate?
You can donate online at www.purefoypta.org. Just follow the links to our fun run page! Your child’s site will also be able to be emailed to family and friends as well as shared on social media. Please check to see if your employer will match your donation, too! Purefoy PTA is a 501c3 organization and qualifies for many matching programs—it’s an easy way to multiply your impact.
Q: Why should I donate?
Fun Run donations pay for all the educational assembly programs (like Dallas Zoo animals, Texas Storm Chasers, Dennis Lee and Dinosaur George) during the year, as well as for each K-5 class to have a hands on science experience in their classrooms. They fund teacher grants for educational resources, annual subscriptions to Scholastic news and campus improvements such as the playground canopy, the courtyard seating, the turf expansion, and the Gaga pit. Your donations also support teacher appreciation week, teacher luncheons and birthday celebrations, and family engagement events like Sock Hop and Glow Recess. In short, Fun Run is a *big deal* and makes a tremendous difference in our kids’ educational experience.
Q: What campus investments are planned this year?
Some possibilities include new flexible seating for classrooms and painted sidewalk activities for recess and brain break. In addition, a percentage of the funds raised by a student will go directly back to his/her own classroom to help fulfill that teacher’s wishlist or provide new learning opportunities for the students. The more funds they raise, the more their classroom benefits!
Q: Anything else I should know?
If the above reasons are not enough, there are also great prizes for our students! Grade level and class level prizes will be awarded for funds raised—and the students will also be entered into a drawing for awesome prizes like an Urban Air party, passes to the Cove and Epic Waters, Monster Mini Golf and so much more. Every student will receive one entry, with additional tickets awarded for funds raised. All prizes will be awarded at our students-only prize assembly in November.
