How do I raise money for this event?
Your student will use the hour to make as many laps as they can around the high school track. They can walk, skip, run, dance, hop, or whatever they like to do around the track for this hour. Laps are tracked electronically each time your child makes it around the track.
Call your family and friends (no strangers!) and ask them to sponsor your child for each lap he/she makes around the track (example $0.25 for every lap counted).
