Run­ning to raise cash for school

Bay News - - NEWS - Car­men Hall From the ed­i­tor

Fundrais­ing events have be­come the norm for most schools these days, but the pres­sure has in­creased ten­fold since Iwas a kid.

Now we are talk­ing about com­mit­tees hav­ing to come up with big ideas to raise big bucks.

Tens of thou­sands of bucks. But there are peo­ple in the com­mu­nity and sup­port­ers of schools who do this year af­ter year as in­jec­tions of cash from the gov­ern­ment are harder to get.

This year the Golden Sands School Fun Run & Walk hopes to use the money it makes for a new play­ground. Event direc­tor Les­ley Park says last year more than 1000 adults and kids took part in the event, which is pos­si­ble be­cause of sup­port from lo­cal busi­nesses.

They have some great spot prizes, so why not rally the fam­ily and give it a go?
