Pumpkin Fun Run

running pumpkin3The 2017 Pumpkin Fun Run took place on November 3!

Each fall we put together a school wide fun run in the field behind St. Ambrose School as a way to:  bring together students, parents and teachers for some outdoor fun and games; teach our children about the value of good exercise and healthy eating; and raise much-needed funds for our wonderful school.

All students participate, whether or not they have any pledges. Students run/walk 1/4 mile laps, support their fellow classmates, use their pledge form to collect money for the school, and have a ton of fun!

What do the children get from the Pumpkin Run?

  • Understanding the importance of exercise.
  • Appreciation of team work and school unity within their classrooms and school.
  • Every student receives a healthy snack on Run Day.
  • Every student will have a chance to work towards our goal and be rewarded with a special event for achieving it!
