APEX FUN RUN
Thank you for your support of Our Lady of Peace School and the investments you make in your children’s lives. We are so excited to announce that our school will be participating in the Apex Fun Run again as our major Fall fundraiser! The Apex program will last for 2 weeks and will kick off with a Pep Rally on Monday, September 17th at 8:00 am. Please look for your child's Apex Pledge Kit they will receive on that day and for e-mails coming from your teachers.
Apex Fun Run is an interactive leadership program that helps schools all over the country raise funds while promoting leadership, good character and fitness. This year’s theme is Apex STRONG! Students will join the Apex Squad on an exciting journey as they learn what it truly means to be strong as a team.
During the Apex Fun Run program, students are challenged to get pledges for the laps they will run on Friday, September 28th to help our school. Students will run for 30 minutes and will run an average of 26-36 laps around the Apex Raceway. The maximum number of laps is 36 and each lap is 1/16th of a mile. Through Apex’s top-notch online pledging system, sponsors can pledge $1/lap, $2/lap, $5/lap, or any other lap amount or they may simply pledge a flat amount (donation) from anywhere in the world!
ALL STUDENTS INCLUDED
All students will receive Apex wristbands, an Apex lap counter, and team awards.
All students will experience Apex Fun Run’s world-class character program and have access to additional character lesson videos on
the free Apex Fun Run App!
FITNESS, CHARACTER & LEADERSHIP PROGRAM
This year, Apex Fun Run’s character and leadership program will focus on being STRONG as a group and working together to change the future. The interactive lessons discuss the importance of having a strong mind, heart, and body!
WE NEED YOUR HELP
Connect your child to potential sponsors and help acquire pledges for the number of laps they will run on Fun Run day Fri. 9/28. Family and friends anywhere in the world can support our school.
All students will also receive their own pledge kit with an individual access code that allows you to enter pledges online.
Come to the Apex Fun Run and don't forget to invite others to attend our fun-filled community event.
