SuperHero Run

SuperHero Run

Dear Elk Creek Families,

Each year Elk Creek has one fundraiser. For years we had students sell cookie dough, and we consistently raised around $10,000 that we put towards technology. Last year we tried something new…the Rainbow Run. Students collected either a flat rate or a per lap donation for running in and around the school…and we raised nearly $40,000! Needless to say, the Rainbow Run was an unmitigated success.

In keeping with our theme, this year the run is called the Superhero Run, and it will take place on Wednesday, February 14th. We strategically picked Valentine’s Day because we knew that learning on this day would already be interrupted, so instead of two days of distraction, everything takes place on February 14th.

On Valentine’s Day, students will distribute their valentines in their classroom in the morning, and then after lunch students will participate in the Superhero Run followed by a celebration and rehydration in the cafeteria. More information will come home on Friday, January 26th after the Superhero Run Kickoff Assembly for all students in the gym at 2:30 p.m., but be sure to save the afternoon of February 14th to be at Elk Creek for the Superhero Run and Valentine’s Day Celebration. Each class is welcome to organize food to share in the cafeteria after the Superhero Run (be sure to stick to the Jeffco Healthy Schools Guidelines--

Not only will Superhero Run and Valentine’s Day result in less days of interruption, but we’ll also get to celebration together in the cafeteria after the run (and this keeps our building cleaner!)
Of course volunteers are needed for the Superhero Run, and you can find a way to help by going to our SignUp Genius.

We’ll also broadcast the run on our Eagle LiveStream which is accessible from

I’m looking forward to seeing whether we can raise more than we did last year to help update our computer lab and purchase additional technology!
