Run2Play Health Fitness Day - March 9th

The Foundation & PTA are teaming up to create a great new event at Adobe Bluffs.  We are combining the annual Run2Play and the annual AB Games to make a great event that focuses on and provides a morning of physical fitness, fun and education for the kids while fundraising for the Foundation.  Education is an important piece to this day, but this event remains a significant Foundation fundraising event.  The Foundation funds so many "extras" for our school, enabling our students to have many opportunities that may otherwise be nonexistent.  You will be receiving more information soon about how you can provide fundraising support.  Please remember that your donation is tax deductible and please check with your employer to see if they will match your donation.  If you have questions about donations, contact KC Hellenkamp at helly15@aol.com.  Please plan to join us for this exciting event!  There are many opportunities to volunteer on the day of the event or to help prior to the event.  If you are interested in volunteering, contact Krista Stephenson at kristas1103@yahoo.com.
