SAMPLE EMAIL TO SEND TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY
Dear __________________________ (sponsor name),
This year I am running in my school’s FUN RUN to earn money for Bay Elementary. The money I raise goes to my school to buy us new technology and to make necessary improvements to our media center. There were big budget cuts that deeply affected our school, so the school needs our help more than ever. If you would like to help me, you can donate a flat dollar amount or a dollar amount for each lap I run. The average number of laps run is 20.
Pledge Example: If I run 20 laps, a $1 per lap pledge equals a $20 donation to be collected after the run.
There are a couple of ways you can contribute.
1. Respond to this email with the amount per lap you would like to contribute. You will get an email after the run telling you how many laps I ran. You can then send a check directly to the school at the address below.
2. You can send a check now for a flat dollar amount. Make the check payable to Bay Boosters and mail it directly to my school at 118 Gilmore Road, Santa Rosa Beach, FL 32459. Please include my name and “Fun Fun” in the check memo.
Thank you for helping our school! I really appreciate it!
