Scorpion Stride Family Fun Run & Walk
May 3rd, 6-8 PM

The Scorpion Stride is a fun run & walk for IA students, families, and friends through the IA school grounds to promote family fitness and raise money for teacher start-up funds for the 2019-20 school year. 

Run/Walk Course Details & Distance: The course will go through the IA grounds so you don’t have to worry about traffic, roads, etc. The total distance is a 5k, although you aren’t required to complete the entire distance – the goal is family fitness and fun.  Participants will receive a glow stick and families are encouraged to light up the course with their best “glow” accessories and wear!
Registration: Registration has started and is free on  www.funrun.com, a website that will allow your child to collect pledges and donations for participation in the run/walk. See additional instructions on the PTO - Innovation Academy Facebook page or website. All money raised will go to classroom start-up funds for the 2019-20 school year. Fundraising is optional, but you still must register on this site to participate, even if you don’t plan to fundraise.
Prizes: The top 3 classes in donations will receive an Eegee’s and pizza party. If the whole school is able to collect donations from all 50 states, there will be a popsicle party for all students.
Other Event Activities
: This year we are excited to host local businesses in a Summer Camp and Activities Fair!  We will also have food trucks with food available for purchase. Something for everyone!

Volunteers: Excited about fitness and want to volunteer? Contact the Innovation Academy PTO at [email protected] to volunteer.

Family Pledging makes it easy for sponsors to pledge each student in your family together, instead of separately. Family Pledging links all the pledge accounts of your students so that sponsors pledge everyone at once. If you register multiple students, and select family pledging for any student, they will all be linked. As a parent though, you will still be able to enter individual pledges for each student if you wish. You can turn pledging on or off during registration or from any participant’s dashboard.

1) On the dashboard, you can personalize your student’s page! Select “Edit My Page.”
2) Create an individual pledge goal.
3) PERSONALIZE the page by adding a fun message and a photo!
4) When you upload a photo, you can wow your friends and family members with a custom video starring your child! Sharing it over e-mail and social media is an easy way to ask for a pledge as well!

1) Select the blue “View Participant’s Dashboard” button.
2) From the dashboard, select the green “ENTER PLEDGE” button on the left.
3) Enter the Sponsor information (that could mean you) and how much the sponsor plans to give, then click “Submit”

1) From the dashboard, select THE “Get Pledges” icon above the video screen to learn more about how you can use funrun.com’s sharing tools to ask family and friends you know for pledges!
2) You can view a phone script, create and share the “Student Star” video, use the Easy-Emailer, or share your Pledge Page via email or social media.
