2020 Cougar Fun Run

Let the Fun Begin!

We’re excited to share additional information about this fundraising program and how your family can be involved to help the PVA reach out $20,000 to:

  • Support our important school community events and activities allowing our students thrive both inside and outside of the classroom
  • Provide our teachers with funds to purchase supplies that will enhance the learning experience for our students

The fun starts THIS WEEK at school as the students and teachers transform the school into the Wild West – our theme for this year’s fitness and character fundraiser that culminates with the Cougar Fun Run on March 27.

Here’s how Lower School families can help us reach our big goal!

  1. Register your student(s) now on FUNRUN.COM!
  2. Reach out to sponsors by sharing your pledge link you’ll create when you register.
    • Email, text, use your social channels and some students might even want to pick up a phone to call sponsors (friends and family) to ask for their support.
    • You can also create a fun Student Star Video personalized for your student that is engaging for potential sponsors.
    • Sponsors can support your student by pledging a dollar amount for every lap your student runs (30-35 laps) or by making a flat donation using your student’s pledge link.
    • Pledging is open March 8 – March 27.
  3. All pledges and payments are made online*.
    • EASY for everyone! Sponsors pledge and pay online, saving our volunteers 50+ hours and helping our school collect more pledges faster.
    • Sponsors can either make a pledge per lap or a flat donation. If they make a pledge per lap, their credit card is charged after the Event.
    • *Cash and check payments are still accepted. Envelopes will be sent home for this purpose. Your student will still get credit for the pledge or donation.  
  4. Cheer on your student at the Cougar Fun Run on March 27!


About the Complete Program

We’ve once again asked the experts at Booster to help power our fundraiser and look forward to having the Booster Team on campus with us in just a few weeks. Click here to learn more about this two-week fitness and character fundraising program.

During the program, our students will also experience an amazing character theme, MINDSPARK: WILD WEST! This theme combines S.T.E.A.M. skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) with character-building lessons on Honesty, Gratitude, Kindness, Generosity, and Humility.
