The Panther Run Elementary School PTA hosted its inaugural Fund Run on Nov. 8. This fundraiser involved all grades, from pre-K through fifth.
Teachers, parents and family members were invited to cheer on the kids. Community service workers such as local firemen and police officers came to show their support as well. Students were asked to collect donations. In turn they did laps either running, dancing or walking. The beat was set by “DJ Dad” Ian Levine.
There were prizes awarded for the students who collected the most donations. The first-place winner received a Kindle Fire, and second- and third-place prize winners were awarded, too. Any class that collected $500 or more received a bag of sports equipment.
The students received raffle tickets based on the amount they collected for a chance at winning other prizes. The Fund Run raised funds to improve recess time and outdoor facilities for Panther Run students.
