Fun Run

Chair: Vacant

Co-Chair: Vacant

The Fun Run helps Chadbourne celebrate physical fitness. We need 3-4 parents to come in the morning (7:30 to 8:30 AM) to set up the music and water stations. There’s quite a bit of lifting and carrying, so please volunteer if you don’t mind the physical exertion. Parent volunteers are needed throughout the day to distribute water, manage the music, and to distribute popsicles/ice cream after the students complete their run.
