What is the Rockin' Fun Run and Carol Whittaker Power Walk?
Our Rockin’ Fun Run has replaced our long-running Rock-a-thon and is still one of our largest fundraisers of the year! (Consider it a "healthier version" of the Rock-a-thon).
In memory of Carol Whittaker, our beloved Jr. High teacher who passed away on August 8, 2019, a percentage of all monetary donations will help to fund student scholarships in Carol’s name. Carol was known for her popular Jr. High power walks to invigorate the students’ thought process.
The theme will be “Compassion in Action!” based on Ephesians 4:32 :
"Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you."
Students will seek sponsors for their time running or walking laps.
Any student raising a minimum of $100 for our Fun Run will receive a free Rockin’ Fun Run t-shirt!
MANY RAFFLE DONATIONS are needed to make this a fun and successful day! Students will have the opportunity to buy raffles tickets ($10 for 26) for a chance to win great prizes. All money goes directly to the school!
This is a dress down day! All students should wear appropriate dress down attire. Shorts are allowed but they must be SHS gym shorts. 8th graders will receive a complimentary Rockin’ Fun Run t-shirt in advance, designed by 8th grader, Maddie Jasina, to wear this day. All students who raise a minimum of $100 in pledges will receive a Rockin’ Fun Run t-shirt in November.
Pizza lunch, snacks and drinks will be provided to all students. We will be relying on donations of snacks and water. All snacks must be individually wrapped, nut-free and store bought. Please provide a water bottle for your child for the day.
We thank you in advance for your generosity!
It's going to be a great day!
