2023 Fun Run Fundraiser

Tuesday, October 17, 2023

It's time for our annual FUN RUN FUNDRAISER!  On Tuesday, October 17, 2023, West Creek Academy PTA will host our Fun Run to have fun and raise funds to support West Creek Academy programs and activities. With more than 1,000 enrolled students, our goal is to raise $150,000!

With more funds, we can have more fun! Your support helps provide programs including our one-of-a-kind CalArts partnership/program, all student Field Trips, in-school Assemblies that our kids enjoy,  Scholastic News that teachers use, Family nights such as STEAM and Global Night, our annual Talent Show, Reflections Art program, Student Activities including sixth grade promotion, and more!

Students will be running and exercising their way around the school’s track while volunteers and teachers line the track to CHEER them on!


Get your child's Fun Run donation website set up TODAY!

Step 1: Set up your child’s donation website on PledgeStar as follows:

  • Go to http://pledgestar.com/westcreek
  • Enter your name and email address, then click Register
  • Follow the instructions on-screen
    **Funds received online will automatically be split among siblings.**

Step 2: When you finish, the system will email pledge requests to your family and friends, and allows them to make secure credit card donations online. You get notified each time a pledge is made, and you can track your pledge progress online. Call 1-888-598-7510 if you need help. Remember only you and those you share the URL with can see this site.

Step 3: Have fun, watch your donations roll in and support your child’s education. If you collect checks or cash, please fill out this form when you turn them in by 10/27/2023. Thank you!

Donation page FYI: The amounts for our individual, family, and school incentives are fixed, so why does your donation page goal keep changing each time a donation is made? The PledgeStar system automatically ups your goal to give visitors to your page more incentive to donate. Donation page goals do not factor in to our incentives program. 

NOTE: The last day to submit donations and pledges is 10/27/2023.

How Should My Child Dress for the Fun Run?
Parents, please dress your child in appropriate attire for the Fun Run. This would be similar clothing to that of a normal PE day including pants, shorts, tennis shoes, etc. Make sure your child has a reusable water bottle. Additionally, please do not forget to apply sunscreen prior to their arrival at school!

How Can I Help with Fun Run?
Here is our sign up sheet to volunteer (you must be an approved volunteer with a completed TB test and have attended the training): TBD

When Will My Child Get His/Her Participation Shirt?
Students will receive their participation shirts on Fun Run morning just prior to their grade level scheduled run time.

When Will My Child get His/Her Incentive Prizes?
The PTA is making an effort to distribute as many prizes as possible to our students as donations are received and recorded. We will endeavor to get prizes out weekly, as needed. Please remember the deadline for donation in order to receive incentives is 10/27/2023.

    Each year, the West Creek Academy PTA holds two major fundraisers -- one in the fall and one in the spring. We have held Fun Runs, Direct Donation campaigns, jog-a-thons, spell-a-thons, and put on a gala and auction evening. Each of these events has helped raise funds needed to support our music program, field trips, library needs, maintenance needs, emergency supply needs, assemblies, and more! We thank everyone for the continuing support!
