Bolt for Brookview Fun Run

Bolt for Brookview will be held during the school day on Friday, April 27th. Rain date is Friday, May 4th.  Please visit www.thegetmovincrew.com to register your child and receive a free t-shirt.  The collection period for fundraising is March 26-April 20.

By popular request, we are happy to offer Bolt for Brookview shirts, hoodies and sweatpants. These are available in both adult and child sizes through Image Sport. These are a great way to complete your fun run look and stay comfy on race day! Get your order in by April 6th at http://imagesport.com/m-74-brookview-elementary.aspx.

If you are able to have your student raise money for this event, it is helpful to share their link on social media.  Another way to increase your student’s overall fundraising total is if your company provides employee matches, please look into that as it benefits your student!  If you are collecting cash or check donations, please have the check written out to Brookview Elementary and we will apply that to your student’s account.  Parent packets have been sent home with key dates and information.  If you have any questions, please email us at boltforbrookview@gmail.com.
