Teacher, St Bernard State School
I think the children and parents will be really disappointed if we don’t hold another Fun-Run. I think it’s going to become an annual event for us because of the smiles on their faces. I think we would be doing ourselves a disservice if we didn’t have another Fun-Run. The kids have been chanting Fun-Run … Fun-Run … over and over. It really brought our school together and it involved a lot of our community.
The School Fun Run is the best fundraising program that I have been involved in. The procedure is easy to follow and there is plenty of assistance if required. At Gracemere State School we’ve held the School Fun Run (through The Fundraising Group) for the past seven years straight.
The experience was really positive. Gaia was very helpful and promptly answered any questions we had. Our overall fundraising total was around $22,000, which I was not expecting at all! The students who fundraised online made a huge contribution to that total, and I would definitely recommend school do the online fundraising.
An exciting activity for our school students with a great build up atmosphere and rewarding experience. All students set a challenge for themselves and were proud of their achievement. The certificates and prizes received after the fun run meant the excitement lasted a lot longer than just one day.
The fun run was easy to administer, staff were very friendly and helpful, offering support and following up to make sure everything was flowing along. The children were very impressed with the rewards on offer and are very keen to participate again next year.
The School Fun Run was a simple and healthy way for us to raise some much needed funds. The event management program is so easy to use. Thanks to your staff (Gaia) for going the extra mile to make sure our event/prize orders went smoothly.
