Roosevelt Fun Run is Virtual!
The Roosevelt Fun Run is such a great event to build community and raise funds for school! Thanks to the generous donations of both time and dollars, the Fun Run helps to support numerous events and field trips throughout the school year. For those not familiar with the event, typically students raise funds based on the number of laps they run during a school-wide Fun Run. Students would then collect funds and earn Roosevelt-branded items based on their totals. Unfortunately, due to safety concerns, the Fun Run will be virtual. 

Here’s how we’ll keep the fun in Fun Run going in 2020 – from a safe distance.
Please run (virtually) if you’d like, and donate if you’re able.  

  • From November 16-30, we’re inviting students, and families to run in their neighborhood to celebrate the Fun Run virtually. In the past, students ran for 20 minutes while volunteers cheer them on and count laps. Consider setting a timer for 20 minutes or setting a distance goal for students or better yet, everyone in the household! 
  • Typically, the Roosevelt Fun Run raises $20,000 annually but, due to limited in-person gatherings, the fundraising goal has been revised to $5,000. If the school raises more than $5,000, each student will receive a commemorative t-shirt. This goal is achievable if a majority of the families donate $20. We know that giving isn’t in everyone’s budget this year so please, give if you’re able (and everyone is encouraged to run)!
  • To make donations easier this year, please share this link with your friends and family

Select a date that works best for you and your student(s), run your virtual run, and gather donations from loved ones!
