In the movie,
The Trouble with Angels
, actress Hayley Mills made famous the line, "I have a scathingly brilliant idea!" I always think of that line when the Development Committee gets together. It goes quite nicely with Laurel and Hardy's, "Stanley, this is another fine mess you've gotten us into."
The scathingly brilliant idea this time, however, should not be a fine mess but a lot of fun! The Development Committee is looking for just 4 more runners who are fleet of foot (or not - you don't have to win!) to run in the 7.1 mile Falmouth Road Race on Sunday, August 20th.
What an opportunity to get into summer shape, run this popular and prestigious road race, and all the while help the school out, too. All you need to do, besides lacing up the keds, is to do your best to raise $1,000 in sponsors through your family, friends, and business contacts. Roxanne King is ahead of the pack on this and will help you set up your individual website to make giving simple and easy.
This could be the easiest fund-raising we have done in years. Ten runners earning $1,000 or more to benefit WSCC, less the $2,500 upfront investment, means we net a cool $7,500. This is as much as we net during the entire Holiday Faire!
So, join Joy, Bob, Aaron, Jonathan, Lindsey, and Kate and run like the wind to see your childrens' smiling faces at the finish line. Thank you.
