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 November 30, 2018.
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 them with either a flat amount or a per lap amount. On the event day, the entire school participates by running for 30 minutes with most completing 25 laps. Pledges are collected either through our online system or through a paper pledge.
