The 2017 Candalaria FUND$ RUN is scheduled for Friday, October 6th, come rain or shine. Our theme this year is "Out of this World!"
The FUND$ RUN is the biggest of Candalaria’s two general fundraisers. Students ask neighbors, friends, and relatives to pledge a dollar amount for the number of laps they can run around Candalaria’s track in 20 minutes. Flat rate pledges are also welcome. After the race, students collect the money from their sponsors and return the money to school.. All funds raised go directly to support Candalaria: field trips, in-class special programs, classroom supplies, new technology, author visits, art programs, playground/field improvements, student clubs and more!
For every dollar collected, students will earn raffle tickets they can turn in for a chance to win prizes, such as Get Air passes, smoothies at Jamba Juice, movie tickets, Pietro's laser tag, a Kindle Fire and more!
