RUN is our main fundraiser at Summerfield Elementary!


What is RUN?

  • A sponsorship envelope will come home on Friday, August 30th for children to collect donations from friends and families for our school.

  • It is a direct donation fundraiser! 

  • On Friday, September 27th every child in our school will run a mile or walk around the school track.

  • Parents are welcome to attend and cheer on their favorite Vikings!


What are the benefits of RUN?

  • It is a “ONE and DONE” fundraiser for our school.  If we meet our goal for the 7th year in a row no other fundraising will be necessary!

  • All money stays at our school (minus expenses).  We never pay a 3rd party as it is a PTA driven event.

  • All donations are tax deductible – whether an individual or corporate donation!

  • Our entire PTA budget is funded through RUN including teaching resources, programs, free Family Fun events, assemblies, technology upgrades and safety enhancements & so much more.

  • If you have a local business it is a great advertising opportunity!  Not only will your company’s name and/or logo will be featured on our several communications that are read by our school community daily (Facebook, the Summerfield PTA website, the Bugler and MailChimp) but every child will receive a RUN t-shirt with your company’s name and/or logo on it.  These shirts are worn for school-wide events, all field trips in the Guilford County area and other times throughout the year! In addition, for even more exposure. For companies that donate $500+, your company will have the opportunity to hang a banner at the school.  So many great advertising opportunities to connect with the community and also a way to help Summerfield Elementary!


How can our family help with RUN’s success?

  • Reach out to your friends, family and neighbors to request that they contribute to your child’s educational experience at Summerfield Elementary.  Let them know it is a tax deductible donation.

  • Donate to RUN!

  • Help out with RUN – we are always looking for help on the day of RUN as well as seeking out new corporate sponsorships.

  • Check with your company if they corporate match.  If you have a business or relationship with a local business let us know if there is a sponsorship opportunity.
