Things to know about the Dolphin Dash 22
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.
What is our goal?
Our goal is to raise $20,000 for STEM based programs, equipment, and supplies for our students/teachers. We also want to use funds to upgrade the exterior of the school (beautify). Other funds will go towards events and teacher classroom needs.
When is the Dolphin Dash?
Pledge week begins on Oct 10. We are using a site called 99pledges to collect funds. Students will participate during their PE time the week of Oct 17-21.
How do I register my student?
Search for your student's name on our 99Pledges website. You will then find 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.
