APEX Fun Run
A highly successful two-week interactive motivational APEX Fun Run came to our school from February 16-26th. This event turned out to be an amazing opportunity to raise funds while promoting leadership and fitness in the classroom!
Over the course of the two weeks the APEX team was on campus, the “athletes” visited every Elementary and Junior High classroom to share the daily Dream Team lesson along with a Bible verse for the day. In an effort to unify the students across all school levels, every high school student was assigned an elementary “buddy,” who they helped raise support and encourage with notes and Bible verses throughout the week.
By Thursday (February 25th), the students were thrilled to finally take off on their Fun Run and raise money for their school! Parents, teachers, staff, and the high school buddies all came out to help cheer on the runners during their races. And at the junior high level, the students had a blast running (and getting super messy) in their Color Run! Overall, the students really enjoyed their time with the APEX team… both in the classroom and out on the Fun Run course!
THANK YOU to all who supported the students as they ran by giving your time, energy, and funds! With over $35,000 raised, we designated 50% of the profit for the Ahikam Children’s Home in Guatemala and 50% went back to our school.
“As classroom teachers, we know that we can’t play sports away at other schools unless we have parent drivers, we can’t kayak in the ocean without parents willing to get their feet wet, and, we can’t teach about cheerful service without parents modeling their desire to serve cheerfully.
“When you serve here, you are serving our God, and we are thankful for your presence. Thank you for serving in our classrooms, on our field trips, and in the myriad of behind-the-scenes ways that often go unnoticed. Thank you for giving as you are able, for listening to the Lord, and for serving with your whole heart. You are an essential piece, and we are thankful for your partnership with us.”
