Students are Royal Oaks Elementary won't be selling cookies or candy to fundraise this year. They will be running.
Students will run laps to raise funds for the Royal Oaks School Community Organization. With this fundraiser, all of the proceeds will go directly to school programming.
The fundraiser also reinforces the benefits of healthy, active lifestyles and complements the Sun Prairie Area School District's wellness policy, said a press release.
The fundraiser will take place Friday. Students will run for 20 minutes and complete as many laps as they can. Sponsors will donate based on the number of laps completed by each student, said a press release.
Event organizers expect to raise over $17,000 and students will run over 600 cumulative miles.
