FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT DOES THE FUND RUN SUPPORT?
The money our students raise through sponsorships will go towards the LCS Annual Fund. Contributions to the Annual Fund help reduce the cost of tuition for all students, and help us graduate more young men and women equipped to engage and transform the world for Jesus Christ.
CAN YOU CLARIFY HOW I HAND IN MY CHILD’S SPONSORSHIPS?
If you child is soliciting sponsors for their race both the sponsorship form and any payments must be received by Wednesday, October 2, 2019. Please put the sponsorship form and any checks or cash together and have your child hand them in to their teacher at the beginning school on October 2. If you prefer, parents can drop off forms and payments directly to the main office. Online payments can be made at https://www.lansingchristianschool.org/sponsor-a-student/. Please list all gifts on the sponsorship form (even if the sponsorship made online or by cash) so that we can connect each donation to the child they are sponsoring.
WHAT IF SOMEONE IS SPONSORING MULTIPLE CHILDREN, CAN THEY MAKE ONE PAYMENT?
Yes! There is no need to write multiple check or make multiple online payments if you have more than one child participating in the Fund Run. Just make sure the gift is listed on each child’s sponsorship form so we know how to allocate the sponsorship between children.
WHAT IF THE SPONSORSHIP MONEY DOESN’T COME IN BY THE DEADLINE?
We appreciate donations to the school at any time of year, but because we will be calculating the awards to announce during the event, any gifts received after Wednesday cannot be counted towards the Fund Run prizes.
CAN I WATCH MY CHILD RACE?
Absolutely! The Fund Run is going to be a blast and we hope you will join us to cheer on our runners. The classes will be heading to the HS soccer field shortly after 1:30 and will have staggered start times. All races will end on the soccer field so you can find a spot on the bleachers and watch all of our Prek3-5th grade runners cross the finish line.
WHAT SHOULD MY CHILD WEAR/BRING?
Have your child wear comfortable running clothes and sneakers. Students are welcome to bring their own water bottles, but we will also be handing out bottled water at the finish line.
WHERE WILL THE KIDS BE RUNNING?
We have mapped out four race routes around the LCS property for our runners. Each route will be marked by flags and members of the HS cross country teams will be at the front and back of each race group to lead and encourage the runners. Parent volunteers will also be scattered around the routes to make sure no children veer off course. All races finish on the HS soccer field.
PreK3 and PreK4 – Length of Soccer Field
Kindergarten and 1st Grade Students – ½ Mile Run
2nd and 3rd Grade Students – ¾ Mile Run
4th and 5th Grade Students – 1 Mile Run
