rocketrun1What is the Rocket Run?

The Rocket Run is our annual Jog-A-Thon event and is the primary PTC fundraiser for Rock Creek Elementary school.  The money raised during this event goes directly to student enrichment programs such as art literacy, assemblies, holiday parties, field trips and classroom learning materials all supported by the Parent Teacher Club.

How will my student participate?

All students participate in the run with their class and receive a free Rocket Run t-shirt.  The students will run, walk or jog as many laps as they can during the run.

How can our family help with the fundraiser?

Students are encouraged to ask family, friends and neighbors to sponsor them with a flat donation or a per-lap donation to help achieve our fundraising goal.  Students should always be accompanied by an adult when they are asking
