Run for Hayhurst

Run for Hayhurst is BACK at the school and will be held on the morning of Friday, October 22, 2021. Sponsorship donations accepted till October 28. Special prize to the grade that collects the most $$$ (extra PE) and individual prizes to top runners per grade (ice cream)! Plus, participation prize: ice cream scoop from Dairy Hill ice cream.

Kids Run & Collect Sponsorship Donations from the Community

The Run for Hayhurst fundraiser is fun for the kids and offers an opportunity for the community to support our school, so get your kiddos excited about running and have them call on your family, friends, and neighbors for support.

Funds collected go towards enrichment opportunities for students and teachers, supplies, special events, and more. As you may know, we did not have a live auction last year and will not have one this year, so we’re running multiple smaller efforts to take its place, maybe this one is for you.

Run Time & Prep

The run is scheduled for Friday, October 22.

  • Grades 3, 4, 5 will start at 9am.
  • Grades k, 1, 2 will start at 10am.

The “Rain-Out” date is the following Monday, October 25.

Please remember to send your student’s water bottle on the day of the run and consider packing an extra snack. We will have snacks for them as well.

Each course will have a lapse length of approximately ¼ mile and students will be limited to 30 minutes.

Anyone Can Sponsor – Now Through October 28!

Hayhurst students run for the school and we invite you to help collect donations on their behalf.

A great way to collect and track sponsorships is to print out the sponsorship collection form (PDF), take it to neighbors, friends, and family, tell them about the run and invite them to sponsor runners either by check or credit card.

Use the form to track sponsorships and to submit check donations (see further details when you download the form). 


There will be individual prizes for the top three runners per grade (ice cream) and group prizes for the top earning grade (extra PE), so make sure sponsors provide runner details when they donate.

Also, we’ll have a participation prize for all Run for Hayhurst runners: a free ice cream scoop at Dairy Hill Ice Cream. Everyone is a winner!
