Lap-a-thon Sept 14, 2009
Our lap-a-thon is scheduled for September 14, at a location to be determined later this week, This is our primary fund raiser event, This fund raiser helps us keep our price low, allows us to offer scholarships, and assist our athletes in national competition.
We ask every family to seek pledges either by flat rate or a per lap donation. The athletes run 1 hour, later they return to their donors and collect their pledges to turn in by the dead line.  
We will award a grand prize of Disneyland park hopper tickets to the athlete who raises the most funds. Every athlete who raises $40.00 will also win a prize.   
The deadline to be eligible for the grand prize is October 6th. Athletes who raise $40.00 or more will still be eligible to win a lap-a-thon prize even if they turn in the funds after October 6th.
Song Requests: We are taking requests. If you have a song you want to hear during the lap-a-thon, please send me an email so I can make sure I have it, * We may not be able to get to all songs requested.
