East Cherokee Road Race–Friday, October 13th
What Is It? ECRR is our primary FUNdraiser for the year. All funds raised go right into helping our teachers teach and our students learn.
What is the Event? Think “American Ninja Warrior” meets mud race (but without the mud!) From crawling under a rope web, scrambling across balance beams, traversing a cargo net, to crossing the finish line in a bounce house, the students will get to experience an event they’ll never forget! It will take an average of 10-15 minutes to complete.
How can I help? Parents can help in several ways.
Before the event:
1) Donate to your child, either at the school or online. Encourage friends and relatives to donate as well! Here is the link to donate online. https://squareup.com/store/hickory-flat-elementary-school-pta
2) Help with preparation of the course.
3) Come support the students as they “race” the course. (perhaps run it with them??)
4) Supervise an obstacle station for part or all of the day.
5) Help tear down the course and clean up.
If you have any questions, or if you’d like to volunteer, please contact our PTA at HFESPTA@gmail.com
