What made this a fun run?

Asked at the Walnut Grove Fun Run fundraiser

I ran 18 laps and I raised ten bucks for my school. We did a flash mob for Mr. Vranesh and I practiced for a long time. I told my parents that I needed to eat a big breakfast so that I was ready to run, so they made me oatmeal and toast. We decorated ourselves in our classroom. It was really fun.

Watching everyone show their school spirit and come together as a community to raise much-needed funds for our children made this a very fun run.

It's all about raising money and running together. I got a lot of exercise and more muscles. I've been excited about today for two weeks, and I loved coloring my shirt and making over $200 for my school.

I really enjoyed the entire event. My kids' enthusiasm was contagious, and my husband and I have been almost as excited as they have been for weeks. The students were able to raise money for their school in a positive, healthy way, and it was great to see their proud faces at the end of the run. The Thriller flash mob was a great surprise, too…I love me some MJ.

I liked dressing up and running around the track. I raised $59 because I ran 19 laps. It was good for our bodies and fun to run with my friends.
