OneRun is a district-wide Des Moines Public Schools fundraiser. This unique event is an opportunity for Des Moines to become #1 in yet another category: funding education.
Each participant will need their own registration form. For example, a family of four will need four registration forms. Please bring the whole family, your neighbors, your co-workers, everyone! The route will be approximately two miles. The more people that designate your school in their registration, the more money goes to your school!
There are two ways to participate. You can register to be a runner or a supporter. The supporters are invited to bring signs, bells, noisemakers, etc. and line the path to cheer for the runners. People who participate as supporters will help create an incredibly uplifting, inclusive event for all. Donations are not required for registration; anyone who is able is invited to donate any amount.
Corporate and individual donations will be given to the DMPS Foundation. After the event, the participants (runners and supporters) will be tallied by the school designated in their registration. The Foundation will disburse funds to each participating school according to their percentage of participants in the event.
Each school may identify the best way to use their portion of the funds for an enhancement or experience that aligns with the mission of the DMPS Foundation. The Des Moines Public Schools Foundation exists to enhance quality Education for all Des Moines students, with special emphasis in the areas of Science and Fine Arts.
You and/or your business donate? Checks can be written to DMPS Foundation C/O Sue Renfrow, Memo: OneRun, and mailed to: 2100 Fleur Drive Annex; Des Moines, IA 50321 or donate online: www.dmpsfoundation.org/donate-now
