3. What Does Registering to the Run Mean, Exactly?
By committing to this event, and setting a goal to raise money for its success, you are making a difference
in the lives of our students and helping sustain an outstanding educational program for them. The money raised from this event will go towards providing outstanding educational resources for our students and faculty as well as financial assistance for students in need for the upcoming school year. We wish you all the success possible. Train, set and achieve new goals, enjoy the race… and get all the sponsors you can, so when you cross that finish line, we will all be winners! 
 
4. How can My sponsors submit payment?
Online contributions can be made by credit card on the runner’s personalized page found on this
website (Just make sure to tell your sponsors to select your name from the list of runners) or if you choose you can collect cash and checks and turn them into the school office no later than May 19th.
 
5. I am concerned that I might not be able to raise funds. Will I be able to do it?
Even if you've never raised money before, our materials and strategies will make it easy for you to solicit and collect sponsorships/donations from friends, family, colleagues, neighbors and others. Experience has shown that it is not only possible, but enjoyable, to set and reach your goals. Please refer to the sample letters found on your personal fundraising page center that explains the programs the Run supports, and you will be surprised to see how quickly friends, family, and co-workers will respond to your request to help your school. Just remember to make it personal as you want your donors to know that they are sponsoring YOU and YOUR efforts! And, as many companies offer charitable donation matching programs, make sure to ask your sponsors to check with their employers, as it will help you meet your goal more quickly.
 
6. Is the Run only for Runners?
No! The Run is designed as a day of fun and fitness for the whole family. It is open to the entire
community, runners and non-runners  alike.
Runners enjoy additional benefits that include pre-race stretches and warm-ups led by professional fitness staff, race-recording, free tee-shirts and other great giveaways; trophies for the top three winners in each age category, and  more.
 
7. Do I Run Alone or as a Team?
Either! Participants can run alone or create their own team.
 
8. Is there a refund/exchange policy?
Yes. If a donation was made accidentally or for the wrong amount, simply make us aware of the issue and we will be happy to make any necessary refunds, changes or corrections. Race registration fees are not refundable.
