APEX Fun Run

Apex Fun Run is coming to our school from March 2 -12!! We're so excited to tell you about our annual school sponsored fundraiser, the Apex Fun Run!  Apex Fun Run will be on campus for 2 weeks teaching our students about leadership and fitness. We will kick off with a Pep Rally on Tuesday, March 3th at 9:30am. Please look for your child's Apex Pledge Kit they will receive on that day and for the emails coming from your teachers.  

Apex Fun Run is an interactive leadership program that helps schools all over the country raise funds, while promoting leadership, good character, and fitness.  This year's theme is GAME ON!

Go Getter


Move Forward


Others First

Now What?

During the Apex Fun Run, students will be challenged to get pledges for the laps they will run on Thursday, March 12th to help our school.  Students will run for 30 minutes and will run an average of 26-36 laps around the Apex Raceway.  The maximum amount of laps is 36 and each lap is 1/16th of a mile. Through Apex Fun Run's online pledging system, sponsors can pledge $1/lap, $2/lap, $5/lap, or any other amount for students and clan pledge from anywhere in the world.

Funds raised this year will be used to pay for staffing our counselors and other part time personnel, fine motor kits, cooperative games, playground equipment and art work for the stairs.  Please look for more info about the program on this site and on our Facebook page along with ways to support our school as we get closer to the event.

All students will receive Apex wrist bands, an Apex T-shirt, and team awards. All students will also experience Apex Fun Run's character program and have access to additional character lesson videos on the free Apex Fun Run App!

We need your help! We need volunteers to help run with your children at the event or just cheer the kids on and give lots of high fives as the kids are running. The kids will really appreciate the support.

Please note that our donation collections will all be done online through the Apex website to make the collection process easier and faster. Of course, sponsors can still pay by cash/check if they choose, we just ask that these donations be turned into the school any time before the Fun Run, so that students receive credit.
