Dolphin Dash 2021
Our school has one major fundraiser at the beginning of the year to help fund PTA lead programs, events, classroom/teacher supply support, and special projects. Here are some details to help you understand more about the event and importance of it. If you have any questions, please contact our 2021 Dolphin Dash event chairs :
THANK YOU Vallejo Mill Community! Our goal was $25,000 and we went over that and raised over $30,000!!!! How amazing!
We are excited to work with our community to apply that money towards enriching our students school experience. Please attend our Feb 8th PTA Association meeting with your ideas and to learn more about where the funds will be allocated. Thanks again!
Thank You to our Business/Family Sponsors for their support to help with Dolphin Dash T-Shirt. We are happy that with their support, the PTA is able to give each Vallejo Mill student a free event t-shirt.

Things to know about the Dolphin Dash
What is a fun run (Dolphin Dash)?
It is an opportunity for the students to earn pledges from family and close friends in exchange for 15-30 minutes of exercise.
The event is run by PTA volunteers, therefore, 100% of the money raised comes right back to the PTA to support our budget for the upcoming year. Many other schools use companies that help set up fun runs (boosters), however there is 40% fee for these services. Therefore, we opt out of using them.
When is the Dolphin Dash?
Pledge week begins on Sept 27. We are using a site called 99pledges to collect funds.
Students will participate during their PE time the week of Oct 4 - 8.
How do I know if my student is registered?
If you returned a completed BLUE consent form that was sent home in Friday Folders to your teacher, you are already signed up and you will receive an email from 99Pledges. It will have a personalized link for your student for you to share with friends and family.
If you filled one out and still haven't received your e-mail, that means we had issues with some of the information on your form. You should then follow the instructions below to self register your student.
How do I register my student?
Click the following link and register your student. You will then receive an email with a personalized link to share with family and friends.
Should my child go door-to-door?
No, we do not encourage children to ask for pledges door-to-door or without adult supervision. If you know your neighbors then it up-to the discretion of the parent.
What if I don't want to participate in earning pledges?
We understand that not everyone will want to ask friends and family. We ask then you make a single donation on behalf of your family to the PTA. However, we still encourage students to take part in the run and they will receive a t-shirt regardless of participation.
