The Color Walk information packets went home this week and we are starting to feel the excitement! Inside the Color Walk envelope you’ll find an order form for registrations and Color Walk t-shirts, a donation form, and a pre-order form for Subway sandwich combo meals. Please take a moment to review the materials with your student and then help them start fundraising — family members, friends, neighbors and co-workers, they can all help your Hillrise Husky. And remember, there will be lots of incentives and giveaways! Deadline for order forms and donations is Tuesday, Sept. 5.
WHAT IS THE COLOR WALK? Hillrise students, friends, family join together to walk a course around the school grounds and through three color stations where volunteers spray colored powder on participants.
WHAT ELSE IS THERE TO DO? In addition to the walk, registrants will get to throw their own colored powder at two different Color Celebrations that will be announced throughout the event. A DJ will provide music, a fun obstacle course, prize giveaways and more! There will be popcorn, make-your-own candy sticks and color powder packets for sale, and you can pre-order sub combo meals for dinner!
HOW DOES THIS HELP HILLRISE? We hope this fundraiser will be so successful we won’t have to do many more the rest of the year. Through the funds raised by donations, walk registrations, t-shirt sales, and concessions, we hope to cover the $20,000 we distribute as classroom endowments to our Hillrise teachers.
WHAT INCENTIVES ARE BEING OFFERED FOR FUNDRAISING? Students who raise a minimum of $25 in donations will get a free student registration and a Color Walk Race Kit. The Race Kit includes sunglasses, packet of colored powder, spirit bracelet, stickers and tattoos.
Students who raise a minimum of $50, get the free student registration, free Race Kit, free Color Walk t-shirt, an additional color packet and an entry in the prize drawing*.
For each additional $25 the student raises, they get another color packet and entry in the prize drawing.
*We’re working hard to get donations from local businesses for our prize drawing. We’ve already secured items such as zoo passes, Scheel’s gift cards, restaurant gift certificates and more! We’re also adding some fun Hillrise experiences such as “Lunch with the Principal” and “Be A Stand-Up Comic for Morning Announcements.” Stay tuned for a complete list of prizes.
