Hayhurst's First Run for Technology: The Run is Behind Us; Still Accepting Donations!

We love technology at Hayhurst and we believe our children need a technology curriculum in this day of age. SO, we’ve had our first Run for Technology fundraiser to raise money to enhance the technology curriculum at our school on Friday, October 25th.

The Kids Ran Over 3,400 Laps

The kids were so excited, they ran a little over 3,400 laps and exceeded our expectations. If you pledged to add to your donation if the kids ran more than 3,000/3,200 laps, they did!

Help Us Raise Funds

We continue to accept sponsorship donations and track the top earning grade and top earning students and families until the morning of November 20th. Donate and collect donations from friends and family using the online donation form here. Top earning grade gets a popsicle party!

All Hayhurst Students Will Receive a Run for Technology T-shirt

Suggested donation per shirt is $15. If you already donated, thank you. If not, please consider donating. Make your donation here (same form).

Thank you for supporting our school’s technology programs.
