Adventure Dash Fund Raiser
Our students have had their playground removed. The playground was found to be unsafe for our students to play in. In an effort to rebuild a better playground, we have teamed up with the PTA and our community to raise money for a new playground. We have organized an Adventure Dash. Students and parents will run through a huge obstacle course. They will have pledges from friends and family to run the course. All money raised will go toward a playground and recces equipment to keep students active!

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

Building a new playground will ensure students have a safe place to play year after year, keeping them physically active for years to come.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students and their parents raise funds from friends and family. They will then participate together going through a fun-filled course set up at our school.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

Finding help to run the event was challenging. However, we teamed up with an outside vendor to set up and run our event.
