STAWELL - Stawell Primary School students are gearing up to take part in the Adidas School Fun Run this Thursday.
Participation in the fun run will help raise vital funds for the school.
In the coming weeks, students will be seeking support from the local community for running in the event and sponsorship is vital to make their fundraiser a success.
General Manager of The Fundraising Group, Brendan Hopp, said it's wonderful that organisations such as Adidas and CUA are making this style of health-based school fundraising possible.
Over the last two and a half years, the Adidas School Fun Run has helped schools to raise in excess of $7.1 million to purchase computers, books, sporting equipment and other resources.
A further $210,000 in school grants has been donated by program partner, CUA, through its Community Care initiative - an extension to the School Fun Run program.
CUA's Chief Executive Officer, Chris Whitehead, said they are passionate about supporting local communities and the School Fun Run program delivers positive outcomes for everyone involved.
All schools participating in the Adidas School Fun Run also have a chance to win a Sports Day with the Stars.
