SMS Runathon is September 28th!

We are excited to present our eighth Sycamore Middle School Run-A-Thon Fundraiser!

This is an exciting event that creates team building and incorporates physical fitness in
a positive atmosphere. It gives the students an opportunity to raise some money for
the school without asking them to go out and sell products.

The students have organized themselves into teams from their grade level.  Students will be asking family, friends, and the community to sponsor them based on the number of laps their team (only one person per team can run or walk at a time) can complete during one grade level block of time.
Teams are capable of getting about 15 (or more) laps. Example: team completes 17 laps, donor pledges $1.00 per laps – total donation is $17.00. Of course, flat donations are greatly appreciated. After completing the Run-A-Thon, students will collect their donations as committed on their pledge sheet, and turn their money into our office during morning turn in dates the week following the Run-A-Thon. Checks are preferred, if possible. Please make the check out to Sycamore Middle School.

  • Friday, September 2  – Teams are selected, pledge sheets are sent home
  • Monday, September 26 – Students turn in their pledge sheet

Everyone will be notified of prizes as soon as the Run-A-Thon has been run and all
necessary paperwork is completed. We thank you in advance for your patience!

Please support this event with your usual enthusiasm as this is our largest all-school
fundraiser. Funds generated will benefit all curriculum areas and enhance the learning
environment for all Sycamore Middle School students.
