Our Race Through Space was great fun, thank you so much to all our students, friends, family, and staff who came!!! We had great weather, an enormous rainbow arch,  awesome music, snacks, feet charms, pie winners, scooter winners, and we even gave away a Vetta birthday party! It was just a blast and we can’t wait for next year!

We cannot say thank you enough to all the volunteers for our run!
Honestly, this team was stellar: independent in tasks, caring for each other, and focused on achieving the goal together… you all worked some magic out there! Every bit of help, big and small, is what made this event so much fun and run so smoothly!!! I am genuinely so grateful to every one of you, thank you, thank you, thank you!!! 

Here are a few numbers to let you know how our fundraiser went: 

·      Out of over 550 students we had 130 participate in our fundraiser; 23%.

·      We had 93 students attend our Race Through Space and just over 250 people attend in total.

Did you love this event?? We are looking for a volunteer(s) to coordinate our fun run next year. If you think you might be interested in planning the Rock Creek PTO Fundraiser, please talk to Natalie at [email protected].  Love working with a best bud? Ask another parent or a friend to co-chair this event with you. And remember, we had so many amazing and hardworking volunteers, you won’t be doing it alone.
