Wolf Run

Many thanks to everyone who supported Wolf Run this year! We raised $55000 this year. It was a great day to run and a fun prize day. Individual prizes will be delivered around the week of October 5. Thank you Challenge community!

Wolf Run Fundraiser Overview

The Wolf Run goal for 2022 is to raise $50,000

The money raised will go to support teacher assistants and instructional resources. All proceeds go directly back to support the school. This is a volunteer parent-led event. If you have any questions, reach out to Crissy Davis at challengevicepresident@gmail.com.

We will have an assembly, run day, and prize day. Every student and staff member will receive a free t-shirt to wear on the day of the run that will be theirs to keep.

Donation Packets go home on Monday, August 22nd. Packets of information will be handed out in your student’s Connections class. Information is also available on the website, thru Signup Genius, on our Facebook page, and in Wolf Tracks. The packets will include a donation collection/pledge envelope with each student’s name. Donations can be in the form of a per lap pledge (ie .50 a lap), or a flat donation (any amount). You can also donate online and share the link with family and friends.

Assembly Kick Off will be held on Friday, August 26th. Assembly Day will be held on Friday, August 26th in the gym: grades 5-8 will be from 8:05-8:25am and grades K-4 from 8:30- 8:55am. Members of the Wolf Run Committee will be there to talk about the importance of being fit and to get the students excited about the Wolf Run, including some of the prizes that they can earn by bringing in pledge money.

Wolf Run Day is on Friday, September 2nd. Your student’s free T-shirt will be delivered to their Connections class and distributed the day of the run. T-shirts will already have the bibs pinned on the shirt. Bibs will have the student’s name and connections class on them so students will just need to find their name and put on the t-shirt before the run. Students will walk outside with their class for the introduction, run for 30 minutes, and then have cool down/popsicle time while volunteers take off their bibs, and then they will return to class. Students should bring a water bottle, dress in comfortable clothing and wear comfortable running / walking shoes. There will be some cups and a water cooler at the run, in case kids forget a water bottle. Students who run 40 or more laps will get a lei to wear the rest of the day.
