BENEFITING: PTA NEW YORK CONGRESS
EVENT DATE: Sep 27, 2014
Approximately 60 team members as of today! The best part about our team this year is that we not only have students and parents participating but we also have so many VCS teachers and staff running and walking for our team!
The primary goal in setting up the team from the very first year was to promote healthful activities that our students, families, and community could participate in while providing positive role modeling of these healthful behaviors to the students! And we have succeeded! It has been said that it "takes a village"...well our VCS community has stepped up to accomplish this goal! Thank you to each and every team member for joining the team this year!
Wow! Over 50 team members have joined our team thus far! Thank you to every team member for taking time out of your busy schedules to not only be part of our team but also to be healthy role models for the students/children of VCS! We have so many families participating this year too! You should be receiving team emails but if you are not, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know you are on our team!
NY Life Insurance - Finger Lakes increased their commitment to our team since we have so many new team members and needed so many team t-shirts! Thank you NY Life and Darin and Dan for your generous support!
So now that we have a great big team and reached our goal of promoting health and wellness in our community :) ...let's get to fundraising for the great programs and activities that PTSA sponsors for all the students at VCS! For the last 2 years we have raised almost $2,000. So this year let's try to break the $2,000 mark and reach a goal of $2,001! Email everyone you know...or tweet, text, facebook, put out collection jars...whatever you can think of...no donation is too small because it all adds up (as it has in years past!).
And it is never too late to join the team! Any questions, email email@example.com
Congratulations team on winning MVP's Healthy Community Builder Contest for week 5! A special thank you to Mr. Pasho for encouraging many at VIS to join our team! Keep spreading the word about our team and encourage others to join or donate! This year you will see that our teachers/staff are creating Crowdrise pages for their individual schools! Team VECS and Senior High will be available soon! See who is running by visiting their pages! And don't forget to donate :)
This is the 4th year that the VCS PTSA has formed a team for the George Eastman House PhotoFinish 5K! Our team has grown each year and we want to have an even bigger team this year! As well, our team last year consisted of not only of students and parents but also VCS teachers and staff! You can run or walk the course. Let's challenge one another to participate this year and create the biggest team and model healthy behaviors to all in our community while raising money for our PTSA's events and programs that benefits each and every child at VCS! Who can beat last year's fastest VCS teacher Mrs. Prato???
Thank you to our team t-shirt sponsor NY Life Insurance - Finger Lakes! They have supported our efforts over the last three years by providing team t-shirts! Thank you NY LIfe!
