huge success, but I still need your help. As a team we finished at $31 per
lap! Whatever our class collects by Thursday, September 12, 10% comes directly
back to our classroom!
Please help your student get in touch with their sponsors. Sponsors can pay
three ways—Cash, Check or Credit Card online.
If an e-mail address was entered with the original pledge on www.funrun.com,
your sponsor will receive a pledge link to pay directly by credit card if they
so choose or they can enter their e-mail at www.funrun.com/payment. If not,
they can mail cash or check to you and you can send it all in at once with
your child’s collection envelope. That envelope went home today with a
reminder letter highlighting what’s outstanding. You can also log on to
