 Annual Miles for Smiles

We are excited to announce a new format for the Miles for Smiles Fun Run 3K & 6K Event.  Given that part of our school mission is leading active, healthy lifestyles, the money raised by Miles for Smiles supports these endeavors and we wanted to involve you and your kids in a new way.
The Miles for Smiles event will be held on Saturday, June 2nd at the Dacota Street Pavilion on West Lake Winona.  The event will include a 3K (one lap) and a 6K (two laps) fun run around the “little lake.”  We hope you will consider signing up as a family! In addition to participating (either by running or walking ) in the Miles for Smiles event, we are asking each family to reach out to family, friends, co-workers, and others who wish to help support your children’s healthy lifestyle and our mission to provide these activities

ach week a Sponsor/Donation sheet, which are due back to school every Tuesday.  To help get us all excited about this awesome fundraiser we have weekly prizes for students/families, a homeroom challenge and a school-wide challenge to motivate the students to help raise funds for our gym floor renovation. 
Weekly prizes - Students/families who have returned their pledge sheet and donations each week will have their name placed in a bucket for some super cool prizes.
Homeroom Challenge: Each homeroom will be competing to bring in the most unique donations of $1.00 or more.  The winning Homeroom will get to spray Mr. Larson and another staff member with Silly String and Slime.

We hope this is an opportunity for both you and your children to think about and take advantage of the spring weather to get out and get moving.  We have included a beginning 5k training program for any of you who would like a little help getting started training for our family wellness event.  Feel free to use the school’s fitness track to help you get your training program off and running!
For those of you who are more competitive, we will be also offering prizes to our top male and female adult 5K runners  as well as other fun prizes for our the top boys and girls (under 12) for both the 3K and 6K races.
