Black River Fun walk 2022
Join the Fun
Support Black River Public Schools
History of Funwalk
In the past, the Black River Parent Organization hosted a myriad of fundraisers – everything from magazine sales to car washes. This led to fundraiser fatigue by the students, parents, and staff.
In an effort to meet key school needs and reduce the overwhelm, a dedicated, core group of parents designed Fun Walk Friday.
Rather than selling, selling, selling, and only receiving a portion of the money, Fun Walk Friday was designed to maximize the support of our community. With the support of our generous sponsors, 100% of student-raised funds go directly toward supporting the school.
From the walk itself to the live music, dunk tank, face paint, yard games, and pizza, this year’s Fun Walk will be FUN.
Show up and be sure to get in your class photo! The highest CAP class attendance will win a class pizza party!
Prizes are awarded based on the level of money raised by each student and each homeroom or CAP class. Not able to reach your personal goal? That’s OK! Little bits from lots of people will make a huge difference toward school goals.
Activities for everyone
Student groups will lead different activities, so be sure to get your face painted, get competitive with a game of tug-o-war, and throw a ball for the dunk tank!
