Kennedy Color Run

Our fundraiser launches this week! Be sure to check your email on Wednesday, April 5th for more information and to get your student’s personal fundraising page link. Share this link with friends, family and neighbors to collect donations that support important programs at Kennedy. Students will earn raffle tickets for every $25 raised to their personal fundraising pages through May 7th. They can enter these tickets into the prize raffle of their choice at the Color Run for a chance to win one of these awesome prizes: PS5 and games, Nintendo Switch OLED Bundle, AirPods Pro, Beats Studio3 Headphones, and LOTS of gift cards (Starbucks, Cinemark, H&M, Hollister, PacSun, Amazon and more…)! This is the only way to get raffle tickets.

Our annual Color Run will be held Friday, May 12! This is our PTOs largest fundraising event of the year (and also the most fun). We will need a lot of volunteer help throughout the day to make this possible. If you already know that you can help, please sign up at the link below:

Make your contribution online through PayPal or the PTO online store. If you make your payment online, please include a note with the name of your student. You may also pay by check by leaving it in the PTO box in the school office. Please note your student’s name on the check.
