The New Eagle Elementary School PTO held its annual one-mile Fun Run on April 21 and generously donated $2,268 of the proceeds to FLITE! Thank you to the many children, families and community members who supported this great community event.
“FLITE is grateful to be one of the local charities that the NEES Fun Run supports,” said Karen Reaume, FLITE Chair. “Kids from the entire elementary school participate and raise funds to help kids in their community. What a wonderful way to combine a fun, energetic event with helping others.”
Since the annual Fun Run event began in 2009, the New Eagle PTO has donated part of the proceeds every year to FLITE. “Children from our elementary school benefit directly from FLITE, therefore, we know how valuable the charity is to our community.” said Janeen Jonak, NEES Fun Run Chair. “New Eagle loves to support local charities that will directly help those families within our school district.” Proceeds from the event were also shared with Alex’s Lemonade Stand and T&E Care.
