Schools raise more than $9,000 through fun run

David Lee October 5, 2016

STUDENTS from Mooroopna Park Primary School and Verney Road Special School pounded the pavement recently, each raising funds through the adidas School Fun Run.

On Friday, September 9, Mooroopna Park Primary School held its run, raising $2,729.25 in extra funding.

On Wednesday, August 31, Verney Road Special School held its run, raising $6,184.02 in extra funding.

adidas School Fun Run organiser, Brad Robinson said the teachers and students were excited to get behind a fundraising activity with a difference.

“The fun run meant everyone could get out of the classroom and stretch their legs. The students were keen to show off their sporting skills.

“Parents also enthusiastically supported the initiative as it steered students away from traditional fundraising events that centered around junk food.”
