What is the Heritage Hustle Fun Run? • A school wide event on Thursday, October 5 in which all students and staff participate. • A new approach to fundraising that avoids selling products and directs ALL profits back to the school. • Heritage PTO’s Fundraiser, where students are encouraged to get pledges and run laps to raise money What are the goals of the Heritage Hustle Fun Run? • To fund Heritage PTO programming, including assemblies, field trip opportunities, technology needs, birthday books, new playground equipment, and academic needs that might not otherwise be available. • To include the entire Heritage Elementary community in a fun and healthy "welcome back" activity. • To be successful enough to make this the only Heritage PTO fundraiser of the year. What about pledges? • Sponsors can donate an amount per lap or a set amount. If you choose to motivate your child with a per-lap donation, please manually calculate your pledge and enter your donation after the run is complete. • All donations are tax-deductible. • If your family prefers not to solicit pledges from family and friends, please consider making a donation to Heritage PTO. You are always welcome to complete the paper pledge form (rather than online) and send checks payable to WCSD.
