Hello Radiant Families!

 

The excitement is building!! We will be kicking off our Rally for Radiant Fun Run campaign today! Below you will find all the details regarding the Fun Run.

 

General Information

 

The Fun Run will be held virtually this year, so students are asked to participate at their convenience during the weekend of Friday, October 23rd through Sunday, October 25th. Families are highly encouraged to get involved and join their students in the fun! Be sure to post a photo of your family participating on the Radiant PTO - Waukee Facebook page with #Rally4Radiant in the post. 

 

The goals of the 2020 Rally for Radiant Virtual Fun Run are to:

 

  • Raise money for our school – All funds collected will be used at Radiant Elementary towards library books and an outdoor learning space. The PTO has set a goal for each student to raise $50. We encourage students to identify 5 (or more) individuals to donate $10 each to them for their participation.

 

  • Promote participation for all students & families – All students and families are encouraged to join in on the fun during the weekend of October 23rd-October 25th! Please wear your Fun Run shirts and post a photo of your family participating on the Radiant PTO - Waukee Facebook page with #Rally4Radiant in the post.  Let’s see all of those smiling faces!

 

  • Promote wellness – We hope to promote being active and healthy while having fun outside with your family. Students and families can choose to spend 20 minutes together walking, jogging, hiking, biking or participating in any physical activity they choose. Go outside together and have fun! 

 

 Donation Information

 

For your safety and convenience, donations can be made online only at: RadiantRally2020.fundmonkey.com

 

  • Parents who provided their email address to the PTO will receive an email with their student’s unique online donation code. 

  • Share this code with family and friends to use when donating online. Donations will be credited to the student’s account and you will receive an email update when a donation is made.

  • If a donor does not have online access, you may collect donations from your donors and make an online donation on their behalf. We cannot accept cash or checks this year.

  • If you did not complete the Parent Information Form, your in-person student will receive a letter with their unique online donation code.  For virtual students, who did not complete the Parent Information Form, please email rallyforradiant@gmail.com requesting that your email address be linked to your student's donation code. 

  • Donations can be made online from Friday, October 2nd through Sunday, October 25th.

  • If your personal/employee donation is submitted through your employer's charitable online portal, please email us a donation confirmation to rallyforradiant@gmail.com.  

 

Employer Match Info: Several companies offer a matching gift program where they will match their employee’s donation. If you are using an employer match program, please send verification (a copy of your employer required paperwork) to rallyforradiant@gmail.com

 

PLEASE READ: With 2020, some employers have changed the way they will allow or process matching donations for their employees.  Please be sure to reach out to your HR department to see how this will affect your donations.

 

UPDATE: While we greatly appreciate employer matches, the employer contribution will no longer count toward student fundraising totals/grand prize eligibility (the parent contribution will count). 

 

Examples of employers who have provided matching funds in the past:

  • Wells Fargo 

  • Sammons Financial Group
