Lake Murray Elementary “Fund Run” results in donations of $7,000
A new fundraiser at Lake Murray Elementary School was a big success for the school and its students.
The LMES PTA sponsored its first Fund Run rather than a typical spring fundraiser this year. With the help of the Related Arts team and PTA volunteers, Mariners from every grade collected donations and ran in the race on March 31. The effort was meant to show the benefits of a healthy, active lifestyle.
By the end of the event, donors funded the PTA budget and donated more than $7,000 directly to the school’s Learning Commons. These donations will help LMES update its library of books.
