Fund Run

Fund Run

One of the younger students cheers classmates as they run by.

The annual KMES Fund Run is our final fundraiser during the academic year. This event takes place during a school day in early June. We team it with the school’s end-of-year Picnic and Field Day, which gives the event a great celebratory feel.

Here’s how it works: in the weeks leading up to the Fund Run, our students gather donations from family friends, neighbors, and community members with the promise that they will be running laps for a set amount of time: think of it as a lap-a-thon, but with donations already secured rather than dependent on the number of laps run.

Students bring in donations the day of the event and run laps by class (K/1, 2/3, and 4/5) while the rest of the school cheers them on. The kids get a great sense of accomplishment as each lap is counted and they go on to enjoy the rest of the day’s field activities.

Stretching before the run.
An exciting start for the 4/5 class!
