Friday, October 6th from 9 - 10 am
Dear Lewis & Clark Montessori Families,
Join us for a special “runraiser” that actively engages the entire student body and affirms healthy habits for our students and our school. Generosity, team spirit, and caring for yourself and others are part and parcel of your child’s experience at Lewis & Clark Montessori.
Runtober is a natural extension of these values. It is an exciting outdoor community event held on the morning of Friday, October 6th. The funds we raise are vital to keeping our school healthy, and you are the key to helping us meet our goals.
Collectively, our goal is to run over 1,000 miles and raise over $15,000.
Individually, each child will set goals for how many laps they’ll run and how much money they’ll raise. A special student-designed Runtober t-shirt will be awarded to students who raise $100 or more.
If each child secures 10 sponsors at $10 per sponsor, we will raise over $30,000 for our school.
The fundraising side of Runtober relies on students reaching out to their extended community. Let's throw the net wide. Encourage people, other than you, to support your child and our school. Help your child contact aunts, uncles, neighbors, family friends, cousins, businesses and your co-workers to gather pledges. Collect pledges online at https://pledgestar.com/lcmcs/. This hourlong run on a spring morning has the potential to touch a lot of lives, and mean great things for our future.
Matt Lee, parent of Braydon & Claire and current board member, is going to head up the planning and organizing of this event. Thank you, Matt! If you would like to volunteer to help out, please reach out to Mishawn or me.
Come on out on Friday, October 6th and cheer on your child(ren). Or run (or walk!) with us. Parents, siblings, grandparents and friends are welcome to participate. We hope every student and their families connect with our community by actively participating in Runtober.

|Fundraising System - FUN & EASY!
For our Runtober 2017 this year, we're using an awesome web based fundraising system that makes it much easier for you to request pledges from your family and friends, and for them to make secure credit card
donations online. It's fun, it's easy, and people who use it typically raise twice as much as those who don't!
Remember, our Runtober 2017 is October 6, so please register now to help our school raise as much as we can for our Student Electives, Classroom Materials, Staff Education and Training, and Student Special
When you finish, the system emails pledge requests to your family and friends, and allows them to make secure credit card donations online. You get notified each time a pledge is made, and you can track your pledge progress online.
Call Pledgestar at 1-888-598-7510 if you need help.
