FCS CANter Run

FCS CANter 5K Benefit Run



We have so much fun and success at collecting cans at our yearly CANter Fun Run during the school day, that we decided we wanted to include the community as well by hosting a 5K benefit run for TrueNorth's can drive to promote giving, wellness, and fun in our community! Our students bring in an amazing amount of items, can our community beat that amount???


Thank you to our 2016 Sponsers: 


 FCS CANter Fun Run


Here at FCS, we strive to teach our students how important serving others is. We also know that physical movement and having fun is also important, so we combined the two and started our annual CANter Fun Run! The main purpose of this run is to collect canned goods to donate to the local food pantry at TrueNorth. For every canned good a middle school student brings in, they receive time taken off their 2 mile race time. Our K-5th grade students either run or cheer their classmates on and whatever class between them brings in the most canned goods receives 15 more minutes of recess time. Many of our students and teachers dress up in costume for the run as well, so if you see a turkey or hot dog running down the road that day, make sure to cheer them on :) We owe a big thank you to all of the parent volunteers that help, Bill's Shop N Save for Hot Chocolate, and Consumers Energy for our route flags!
