TIGER CHASE 5k/10K and PAW PRINT SPRINT Fun Run
The PTO is in desperate need of someone to take over organizing Tiger Chase. We are finalizing our budget which will be presented at the first PTO Meeting. However, currently we do not have anyone to organize Tiger Chase. If we do not find someone, we will NOT have it this year.
Tiger Chase is a wonderful event not only for our school but for the whole community. This event brings the Town together from the Road Department who works so hard leading up to the event by cleaning up the roads to the Lafayette Fire Department and EMT volunteers on the day of the event. The New Jersey State Police is also there keeping our racers safe from traffic.
Tiger Chase is one of our key fundraisers which helps the PTO provide awesome services for your kids and teachers. In fact, we dedicated last year's proceeds to the newest piece of playground equipment that was just installed a week or 2 ago. But Tiger Chase is more than a fundraiser. It is about bringing families together and achieving a running goal. Moms, Dads, Aunts, Uncles, Grandparents and most importantly the Students of Lafayette School who didn't think they could finish 3.1 miles, cross the finish line with a huge grin on their faces.
But it is time for a new leader to organize Tiger Chase. The resources are there from the past 5 years to put this event on seamlessly. The PTO board will help and support you but we need 1 or 2 people to be the leaders.
Tiger Chase has grown in the running community from a small local event of 100 people to last year being the goal race for all of the Sussex County Hero Boys with over 400 participants. Help us keep this event going.
