One of Hopi’s biggest fundraisers has begun, the Apex Fun Run! Hopi’s net was $53,322 last year from this fundraiser alone! The funds were used for mid-year school supplies. This year’s funds will be used for the same thing.
Yesterday your child came home with an orange and blue lanyard. On there is the website www.apexfunrun.com, and your child’s personalized access code. From there you can create their online fundraising account. You have 9 days to share the link with friends, family, neighbors, etc, and to collect donations, starting today.
The momentum is fun for the students! Your child will earn neat prizes that Apex gives away daily based on their pledge donations that occur over the next 9 days! Yesterday was their official pep rally and the students are ready to hit the ground running and to ask their loved ones to donate!
Feel free to get creative with your ask. Ive seen a few parents make a quick video clip of their child asking for a donation, maybe even taking a few laps in between to personalize it and of course sharing the link to your child’s online account for the actual donation.
Finally, they will get to run on Nov. 9th. Come cheer them on! Their goal is to get through all 36 laps, especially if their pledges are paying per lap. It all adds up! Spread the word, get creative, encourage people to pledge for your child and come and see your child race on Nov. 9th.

2nd and 3rd Grade, 10:30- 11:30am
