- Intervention Teachers & Professionals
- Organizers for 4th and 5th graders

Donate your gently used athletic shoes - cleats, tennis shoes, basketball shoes, etc.; kid and adult sizes - to the collection bin in the Hearst front office beginning Monday, August 27th. Shoes will be collected through Friday September 28th, also the deadline for FUN RUN donations, at which time they’ll be packaged up and sent to Soles4Souls.
Q: What’s New This Year?
FUN RUN SCHOOL WIDE T-SHIRTS: This year all students will receive a FUN Run t-shirt in their classrooms a few days before the event. We appreciate all voluntary FUN Run t-shirt donations received at walkthrough registration. This money helps us offset the cost of the shirts so that the money can stay in the classrooms! *Please note: regardless of voluntary donations, all students will receive a t-shirt!
PARENTS - Please be sure to provide your student's t-shirt size by completing the form at this link bit.ly/funruntee on or before, Friday, August 17!
