5th Annual Bobcats Fun Run

The Fun Run is a spring fundraising and fitness event. All Barton students will be encouraged to participate by running or walking laps for 20 minutes around the school grounds, rain or shine. Prior to the run, students will be asked to get family, friends and neighbors to sponsor their participation in the run. Familiies will be welcome to come and watch the run, to cheer on the kiddos..  Please note, the campus will be closed to accommodate the race course so please plan to walk or park offsite.

This year, the Bobcats Fun Run is also going GREEN and working to reduce paper so race information and donations are available online!  

Event Schedule

  • Week of May 8th: Fun Run Flyers coming home in Kid Mail
  • May 18th: Donations DUE
  • May 19th: Event Day!


Fun Run Resources

Your Donation is Tax Deductible 

Clara Barton PTSA is a 501 (c) (3) not-for-profit charitable organization. A receipt will be emailed to you when you donate online.

Employer Matching is Key 

Over one-third of our fundraising dollars come from employer matching. If your employer matches, your donations can be doubled! Many employers will match cash donations as well as provide cash matching for hours spent volunteering. Please use your employer’s corporate matching instructions and designate “Clara Barton PTSA” as your recipient.

Made Possible by the PTSA & Volunteers Like You!

The Bobcats Fun Run would not be possible without the PTSA and volunteers from the Clara Barton community.  The success of this all-school event requires volunteers like you! You can sign up and find more information on ways to help here! THANK YOU for your support.

The Clara Barton PTSA offers educational enrichment opportunities and events to strengthen our sense of community, along with supplies and equipment beyond what the district provides.  We also provide food insecurity support and scholarships for school and PTSA-sponsored events and programs for those in need. Great programs like these depend on strong financial support from our Clara Barton community and enthusiastic parent volunteers!
