New year, fresh ideas, different twist.
The Natomas Schools Foundation’s major fundraiser this year will be an October community Fun Run designed to raise charitable funds through fun, healthy exercise that will appeal to residents of all ages.
The tentative date for the Fun Run is Oct. 15. Meanwhile, the foundation has plenty of work to do, including choosing the Natomas course, soliciting sponsors, and publicizing the charity event so runners can mark their calendars.
All money raised by Natomas Schools Foundation, including proceeds from the Fun Run, will be used to support academic, artistic, athletic, and other school-related activities of all students within Natomas Unified School District boundaries.
The Fun Run will replace the Natomas Schools Foundation’s annual Duck Pluck Festival, a community festival highlighted by a $100-a-ticket raffle giving participants a chance to win a top prize of up to $10,000.
If you are interested in sponsoring the Fun Run or want more information about it, contact Jim Sanders, Natomas Unified communications director, at 561-5267
