Every September we host a themed fundraising walk. This is a school wide event where all students and families are invited! The walk kick-off will be in August with the walk day in September. These events have become a tradition of raising funds while providing a fun atmosphere of walking together and promoting school spirit.
In 2019 The BUBBLE WALK event was held on a beautiful September afternoon. This exciting day of fun brought the Meredith-Dunn community together walking through our neighborhood, creating huge bubbles at the bubble car – all while raising funds! Our goal was to raise $18,000 while teaching students the importance of fitness and leadership. With the help of sponsors, staff, & families, we raised $37,000 for updating our curriculum materials.
In 2020 we hosted our first virtual walk / hike titled “TAKE A HIKE” COVID-19! Our goal was to raise funds for COVID-19 protection supplies in order to keep our campus clean and safe during the pandemic. Cleaning supplies, water bottle filling stations, electrostatic cleaning service, hand sanitizer stations, masks, protective shields and many more items were purchased with the $25,000 we raised.
The 2021 event was our first in-person fundraiser of the school year titled Color FUN Run 2021. Our goal was to raise $25,000 all while having fun and staying fit. We raised $40,000 – a new record! 100% of the funds will support educational technology that empower the students of Meredith-Dunn.
