Camelot Fun Run- 2019 Friday, Oct 25th
It's time for our 2019 Fun Run, so grab a pledge form or go online and invite friends, neighbors and family members to support your student by making a pledge for each "superlap" they run.
This year, we are working towards school-wide fundraising goals with fun activities for each goal met, including pajama day, music at lunch and sliming the PE teachers! The top fundraiser will receive a hover board as the grand prize, each grade level top fundraiser will receive a $50 to Zappos to get new running shoes. And every student will be awarded a ticket for EVERY pledge they bring in - no matter how big or small - to be entered into a grade level raffle. Raffle prizes include Camelot spirit wear, gift cards, and more!
Rain date for this event will be Monday, October 28th.
What is the Fun Run?
The Fun Run is a PTA and school sponsored event in which all students and staff participate to raise funds for Camelot Elementary. Money is raised from now until December 6th through pledges from family, friends and neighbors for each lap a student runs.
What are the Goals of the Fun Run?
The Fun Run was created to increase fitness awareness and to raise funds needed to maintain and support PTA programs that benefit all Camelot students. These programs include field trips, assemblies, makerspace, community building social events and more. This year our goal is to have at least 10 pledges per student and raise $17,000.
How can parents participate?
Please join us for the event to cheer students on or even run with the kids! You also can participate by helping share their pledge forms with friends, colleagues and family.

Pledges, Pledges, Pledges
Like last year, we are incorporating an online fundraising platform through 99Pledges. Go on today and search for your child's name (First name, last initial) - and you can set up a separate page for each student at Camelot. Then, share the link with family and friends via email and social media. This will allow you to help your child reach farther for pledges, and donors can use credit card and PayPal in addition to cash or check.
If you prefer to collect pledges on paper, pledge forms will go home in the Thursday folders on Oct 3rd. While we encourage your children to go door to door asking friends and neighbors for pledges, please do not allow them to go unsupervised.
After the Fun Run, students have until December 6th to inform donors how many laps they completed (for per lap pledges) and collect the money. For online pledges, it will automatically be calculated and charged after the event through the 99Pledges site. Cash or checks will be accepted in the pledge envelopes. Checks should be made out to Camelot PTA. Tickets for raffle prizes will only go to students who return their envelope on or before December 6th.
