Twinbrook Fun Run

***Mark your calendars for the 2017 Fun Run on November 3!***



2016 Success!

For the first time, we reached our goal by raising $10,566.57 and pie’d Dr. Alonso! Several classrooms also made their goal and had  an ice cream parties to celebrate. Thank you for donating money and time to ensure this year’s Fun Run was a success!

It’s time for the TWINBROOK FUN RUN – November 4, 2016

The Twinbrook Elementary School PTA sponsors this event each year to raise funds for ALL field trips for Grades K-5. We count on support from all parents, teachers, and students to make it a success. The Twinbrook Fun Run brings students, staff and families together to have FUN and encourage healthy, active living.  

During the Fun Run, the children will run around a track outside for 20-25 minutes. (Inside the Gym in inclement weather.) Twinbrook dad Ricky Davenport-Thomas will serve as deejay and emcee, spinning great music to keep everyone pumped up. We’ll need a big cheering section, so we hope to see many of you come to watch and volunteer! This event, from entertainment, decorations, and planning, relies entirely on Twinbrook parent volunteers. 

Our fundraising goal is $10,000!

Why $10,000? Each grade takes two field trips per year. Each field trip costs $500 – $1,000.

We encourage each child to raise $50 or more in donations.

That’s 5 friends donating $10 each or 10 friends donating $5 each.
