The paper pledge option is used for cash/checks received from donors. Keep track of these pledges on the Bearathon Envelope that was sent home with every student. Keep any money collected in the provided envelope and turn it in by December 1, 2021.
We use a secure web-based fundraising system. Students can request and track pledges from friends and family via email, text, or social media. Donors can make secure donations online or instructions for sending a check are provided. Click on the button below to go to the Pledgestar website.
Students ask friends and family to pledge a flat amount to support the school. Students earn prizes as they collect pledges individually, as a class, and school wide. On the event day, the entire school participates by running for 30 minutes with most completing 25 laps or more. Pledges are collected through our secure online system or can be sent back to school in the Bearathon envelope.
