MudPuppy Chase Fun Run – Sunday, May 6th, 2018

Dear Families,

Our school is entering a team in the MudPuppy Chase Fun Run on Sunday May 6th.  The race is taking place at Columbia Playing Fields 5 and 7 at the University of Waterloo. There are 3 race distances; 600 meter race for those 6 and under beginning at 9:00am, 3 km race that begins at 9:20 a.m., followed by the 5km at 10:20 a.m.  All proceeds help support KidsAbility Centre for Child Development and many other local causes supported by the Rotary Club of Kitchener-Grand River.  Your participation helps children and youth with special needs gain access to life-changing therapy, essential equipment, assistance for their families and so much more. This year, the Rotary Club will also focus on helping schools with individual projects to assist students’ learning.

The registration fee for the 3 and 5 km races is $35 per runner. This fee, which is a special rate for school groups, can be covered or offset through collecting pledges. The fee for the 600m race is $15.

The top student fundraiser receives a gift certificate for a new bike.

All school children who raise the following are recognized:
$100– waterpark passes
$200– bowling
$300– bowling and pizza

These prizes may be redeemed at Bingeman’s

The MudPuppy Chase includes great food for all racers, and a finishing prize. Tex, from the Kitchener Rangers, will greet us at the finish line. The popular photo booth, coffee by donation, water table for spectators, and information booth will be back.

(May 3th and 4th) Kids always enjoy running with their schoolmates, families and friends, and will definitely be beaming with pride knowing they have raised money for such great local causes!  I have participated in this race in the past with St. Dominic Savio and other schools I have taught at and students of all ages always have a blast. Our school will prepare for the race at lunch, using a small track on the field for the younger students and our 50 KM club loop for he older students.Please contact Mrs. Berg at the school if you have any further questions. Thanks for your support!
