2017 Fun (Glow) Run
Tuesday, May 9, 2017
The Association for Equality and Excellence in Education, Inc. is sponsoring the 2017 Fun (Glow) Run in beautiful San Juan, Puerto Rico at our 40th Annual Conference. This annual event will be held on Tuesday, May 9, 2016 at 8:30 p.m. (detailed information will be provided at the Conference registration desk). A fun run is a friendly race that involves running along the beautiful Puerto Rico coastline as you raise funds for the AEEE Scholarship Program. Participants will receive an exclusive AEEE Fun Run T-Shirt as well as novelty glow in the dark items. T-shirts will also be sold for $15.00 to support the Scholarship Fund.
We urge participants to raise funds by finding sponsors prior to your arrival. This can be a wonderful fundraising project for your students to collect as many sponsors for you as possible! Our expected goal is to have all conference registrants pre-register at least $100.00 worth of donations prior to arriving in Puerto Rico. That is only 20 people at $5.00 each. Additionally, AEEE members who are unable to attend the conference can still participate in the fundraising efforts by registering in advance ($20), using the registration form. The top fundraiser will win free registration for the 2018 AEEE Conference, whether you raise the funds from home or at the conference. Attendance at the conference is not required. Your efforts will enrich the scholarship fund which benefits our TRIO students.
All interested individuals should register using the registration form, complete the sponsor form, collect donations and bring it with you to the AEEE registration desk at La Concha Hotel and Casino when you arrive in Puerto Rico. You will be registered as a Fun Run participant and receive a free T-shirt. The on-site registration donation for the Fun Run is $20.00 and all participants will receive their T-shirt and additional sponsor sheets if requested. Those who choose not to meet the physical rigors of the event are encouraged to sponsor your colleagues who are up for the challenge. All sponsors supporting the actual walkers, runners, wheelers, crawlers, and swimmers are asked to make a $5.00 donation.
We hope that you participate in this event and further assist the Association with its continued mission of enhancing the lives of the wonderful young people that we serve. We look forward to seeing you in Puerto Rico!
