We are so excited to announce that our school will be participating in the Apex Fun Run again this year as our major Fall fundraiser!  The Apex program will be with our students from September 18 th - to September 28 th as we raise much needed funds to help our school. Please look in your child's folder and for e-mails that will be sent to you as the fun run gets nearer.

Thank you again for your continued support of Dana Elementary and we are excited to begin this journey with you!
 
During the Apex Fun Run program, students are challenged to get pledges for the laps they will run on Fun Run day to help our school. Students will run for 30 minutes and will run an average of 26-36 laps around the Apex Raceway. The maximum amount of laps is 36 and each lap is 1/16th of a mile. Through Apex’s top-notch online pledging system, sponsors can pledge $1/lap, $2/lap, $5/lap, or any other amount for students and can pledge from anywhere in the world!
