Question: Can my child ask family and friends for donations?
Answer: Absolutely. If your child wants to ask family and friends to contribute to this fundraiser, please encourage them to. You, the parent/guardian will need to pay for your students registration by using the money collected from friends or family if they choose to ask for donations.
Question: How do I register my TMS student to participate in the Color-Run?
Answer: Paying either online via MyPaymentsPlus or in school with this completed registration form, will register your student.
Question: Does my student have to run the entire time, or can they walk?
Answer: Most students walk/jog with their friends. The event is a fun activity for students and teachers, and is not an actual running race of any kind.
Question: How do I tell you what size shirt my student needs?
Answer: If you pay online, you will be required to provide a T-shirt size for your student before you check out on MPP. If your student pays with cash, they have to submit a written registration form, which includes the size t-shirt needed.
Question: Why should I consider the more expensive sponsorships?
Answer: Every dollar raised through this fundraiser goes directly back to Trickum Middle School and the students and staff at the school. If you contribute at either the Silver or Gold Level, your student receives additional color packs, which make the color run even more fun, and they also get a free chick-Fil-A biscuit* and/or free Kona Ice, which gives you cool parent points! (*must register by 10/15 for free CFA biscuit).
Question: Are there any prizes given?
Answer: YES!! Each week, the homeroom class with the most money raised through registrations, will win a special prize, and will be announced on the morning and afternoon announcements.
Question:Who can I contact with additional questions?
