Dear Lewis & Clark Montessori Families,

Runtober is a special fundraiser, occurring on October 18th, that actively engages our entire student body and affirms healthy habits for our students and our school. Generosity, team spirit, and caring for yourself and others are part and parcel of your child’s experience at Lewis & Clark Montessori.

Runraisers are a natural extension of these values. Runtober is an exciting outdoor community event held on the morning of Friday, October 18th. The funds we raise are vital to keeping our school healthy, and you are key to helping us meet our goals.

If every student secures 10 sponsors at $10 per sponsor, we will raise over $30,000 for our school. A special student-designed Runtober t-shirt will be given as a thank-you for students who raise $100 or more. Raise $200+ and earn a pair of funky socks as an additional thank you!

The fundraising side of Runtober relies on students reaching out to their extended community. Let’s throw the net wide. Encourage people, other than you, to support your child and our school. Help your child contact aunts, uncles, neighbors, family friends, cousins, businesses and your co-workers to gather pledges. Here’s a sample script to help your child ask for support:

“Hi, this is _____. My school, Lewis & Clark Montessori, is having a fundraising run to support the great things we do at school. Running is a healthy activity. I hope to run ___ laps this year! Would you please sponsor me either with a flat donation or with a per lap amount?”

Collectively, our goal is to run over 1,300 miles and raise over $25,000. Set your individual running and raising goals and start collecting pledges today! Collect pledges online at If needed, a pledge sheet is attached.

Join us Friday, October 18th and cheer on your child(ren). Run (or walk) with us. Parents, siblings, grandparents and friends are welcome to run and raise too. We look forward to every student and their families connecting with our community by actively participating in Runtober 2019.
