The 2016 Candalaria FUND$ RUN is scheduled for Friday, October 7th, come rain or shine. Our theme this year is "Crazy Socks!" Kids are encouraged wear their craziest socks or leggings on race day.
The FUND$ RUN is one of Candalaria’s biggest 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!
NEW THIS YEAR!
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!
