Kegan's Pre K school is in desperate need of a new playground. Currently they have a wooden play set that is about 20 years old. They are raising money to buy a new one. A metal one that will last a lot longer. Those things are cheap so they had something fun for the kids to do to raise money. In the past they sold things. AKA the parents had to sell stuff because the kids are far too little to do that. So this was perfect. They have a race. They wanted each kid to raise $100. That way they'd be half way to their goal.
Kegan raised $125. I bet if he would have asked more people he could have raised more. But $125 is more than the goal so I am proud of him.
I worked at the race. They needed parents to help out & direct the kids where to go. I helped out at the tunnel. I cheered for kids to run to me & then cheer for them as they crawled through the tunnel. If you know me. you know I probably rocked this. haha I am such a cheery happy dork so just picture me with Pom Poms cheering really loud for these little 4 & 5 year old kids. lol It was fun.
Kyle was off the day of the race so when it was Kegan time to run he came out with Karie to take a video of it. I forgot to mention too that each kid ran alone. I thought that was awesome so that every kid won!
First the kids rode on a scooter or a bike.
They walked on a balance beam (which I didn't get a picture of) and then they ran to me! RUN RUN RUN!
The then tunnel. It was pretty little but the kids are little. You wouldn't catch me in that thing! lol
Stepping stones & then the Finish line! I love it! So cute!
At the end of the race we had all the kiddos pose under the Finish line for some pictures.
How cute is his class? They all go a little "Winner" ribbon. Kegan wore is ALL day long! He never wanted to take a nap and we had to save it to put it in his school projects box. So fun!!!
