APEX Fun Run
APEX Fun Run is here!
This year's character theme is Apex GAME ON! Students will join the Apex Team on an exciting journey as they learn what it truly means to become GAME-changing leaders.
Good afternoon George Washington families. The kids had a blast this afternoon meeting the Apex team! They'll be bringing home their Pledge Kit today that includes their unique Access Code to log pledges online at www.myapexevent.com. Be on the lookout for emails coming from your teachers also! Our donation collections will all be done online through the Apex website to make the collection process easier and faster. Of course, sponsors can still pay by cash/check if they choose, we just ask that these donations be turned into the school any time before the event, so students receive credit.
Here’s a quick video to show you how quick and easy it is to get a pledge. #buildingleaders #ApexGAMEON https://youtu.be/NBXaFvhVjYU
The Apex Team will be teaching our students all about leadership and fitness and how they can change the game! To learn a little about Apex Leadership Co, check out this video- https://vimeo.com/224399946
