How you can help
Raffle Items: The more money each student raises, the more raffle tickets they receive. We are looking for great items that the kids might want to win. We have put together a wishlist in amazon, if you are willing to purchase something and send it to the school, that would be fantastic. Or buy an amazon gift card and we will put them together to purchase the big ticket items. If you have something to donate, we would love that too!
Sponsorship: By becoming a sponsor, you can help us underwrite the cost of this event which in turn brings up our profits. Would you like to see your banner on our fence? We have different sponsorship levels and would love for your business to become a partner with Small Middle School. Click here to learn about becoming a Fun Run Sponsor
Coupons/Prizes: When you ask a student in middle school what would incentivize them to participate in a fundraiser, they will say food 100% of the time. As you can imagine, we would need a fundraiser just to feed all 1221 of them, but what we can do is offer coupons! Are you connected with a local restaurant that might be willing to give us some coupons for discounted food? For example buy one get one free?
If so, contact Jennifer.email@example.com

Scroll past the adult sizes to view youth sizes.
These items are available to purchase online only and the sale will end in a little over 2 weeks. All items are shipped directly to the purchaser with a low one cost shipping fee no matter how many items you order. You should receive your items before the Winter holiday.
