2021 FUN RUN Information and Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Fun Run?
The All Saints Fun Run is the largest annual fundraising event for our school. This event aims and delivers engaging and fun activities promoting character, physical fitness, and community cohesion while raising funds for our school community.
How does the virtual Fun Run work?
Instead of running 35 laps on campus this year, students will be challenged to stay active for 30-35 minutes, within the comfort and safety of their homes. Parents and siblings are invited to participate, and share pictures and videos too! Students and families will have the option to participate the following ways!
Dance Fit: Students complete 5 dance rounds, 7 minutes each, with some breaks in between. Each dance round will include dance alongs, group dances, fitness challenges, and your students and families showing off their sweet moves.
Fun Run: Similar to last year, we will provide a video link with a complete virtual event that takes students from start to finish. This video will incorporate a soundtrack with a built-in emcee announcing fitness challenges, themed laps, and cheering you on. Students can run in their backyards, driveways, or anywhere within their own space.
What is this year’s Fun Run theme?
Your students are going to absolutely love Sports City Now. The newest character theme will inspire students to activate their character and live an active lifestyle. This theme is about a sports news show run entirely by kids who highlight REAL inspirational kid athletes from across the country. That’s right, mini- documentaries about real kids like your students who live and play with character.
What is the storyline?
Due to low ratings, Sports City Now, a sports news show run entirely by kids, is in jeopardy of being shut down. The two lead anchors must fight to save the show by pivoting to a new direction: inspiring documentaries featuring real kid athletes with character. With the help of your students and some magical boxes that are mysteriously showing up in the mail, they might just be able to pull it off. Boosterthon’s dynamic, documentary-style videos will introduce your students to REAL kid-athletes with REAL character. In the process, your students will learn about Teamwork, Care, Courage, Grit, and Celebration.
What are the dates of the Fun Run?
The program kicks off with a Pep Rally on Monday, March 8, 2021 and the Fun Run event will take place on Friday, March 19, 2021.
Does my student(s) have to participate?
This annual school fundraiser is a mandatory fundraiser. Every student must participate and collect a minimum of $300 in pledges which is just 10 pledges of $1/per lap. The most effective method of getting pledges has been to share the Student Star video either via Facebook, email and/or text messaging. Please note: This fundraiser is asking families to participate and collect pledges, not pay for this out of pocket.
How can parents register their student(s)?
Registering for the Fun Run is easy! Simply go to www.funrun.com. Then, parents can register their student as a participant by searching for All Saints Catholic School. Students get a FREE prize just for registering.
How do I create a Student Star video for my student?
All you need to do is log into your account at funrun.com. Click "upload picture". Once the picture is uploaded, the Student Star video will automatically be created and sent to you via email. Once you receive the email, share away and watch the pledges pour in!
What is a pledge and how can students get pledges?
A pledge is simply a promise the sponsor will either pay a certain amount for each minute the student completes during the virtual Fun Run or pay a flat donation towards the student. For example: $1 per minute = $30 to $35. Once your student is registered, students can create and share their own video. Parents can help connect students to sponsors by sharing their video pledge link on Facebook, through email, or even a text. Sponsors can enter and pay for those pledges online through your student’s pledge link!
Can I use my employer’s company match program for the Fun Run?
In most cases, YES! Although All Saints Catholic School is a religious institution, the funds donated are applied to non religious programs and/or services. E.g., academic curriculum for science, math, technology, community service projects, etc.
When should I submit my matching gift request?
There’s no better time than right now! Some companies distribute company matching funds right away, while others disburse them once a quarter. Contact Lucy Lopez for assistance, [email protected] or (510) 219-7676.
How do students earn prizes?
Students earn prizes by getting pledges. Beginning on Monday March 8, 2021 through Thursday March 18, 2021, we will issue nightly challenges encouraging students to get pledges to win prizes!
How will my student receive their prizes?
Due to the current hybrid school schedule, this year prizes will be distributed daily to the students who are onsite. For those students who are attending school remotely, a pick up schedule will be announced. We will set up a drive-thru-like station in the parking lot behind the school so we can give students their prizes!
Can students receive a prize for flat donations?
Yes! All flat donations count toward pledges and are rounded by 30 (the average student will be active). So, a $30 donation is the same as $1 per lap. A $60 donation is the same as $2 per lap, etc.
How does my student earn the exclusive All Saints Sweatpant?
Each “student" who achieves $400 in pledges will win this year’s All Saints Sweatpant. That’s just 13 $1/per lap pledges. So, if every student got 1 $1/per lap pledge every day during the two week event, the sweatpant is theirs!
How do sponsors pay their pledge?
When sponsors pledge online at www.funrun.com, the sponsor will be prompted to pay online for their pledge. Sponsors will receive an email after the Fun Run with the amount of their payment based on how many minutes were recorded.
Can my student get a pledge offline?
If sponsors are unable to pledge online, students can record their pledge on a Fun Run Pledge card. Please contact Lucy Lopez at (510) 219-7676 or [email protected] so she can assist with this process. We want to ensure students earn their prizes!
Can donors write a check?
Yes! Checks can be made payable to All Saints Catholic School and mailed to 22870 Second Street, Hayward, CA 94541. Attention: Lucy Lopez. Please do not mail cash.
Is All Saints Catholic School a registered 501(c) (3) nonprofit?
Yes! The school’s Tax ID is 94-2996997 Is the pledge donation tax deductible? In most cases, yes! Please consult with your tax advisor for confirmation.
