This year our PBE Penguin Dash Fundraiser is VIRTUAL! We are asking all students to run for 20-30 minutes in their neighborhood, along with their families, on Saturday 02/06/2021!  The Penguin Dash is one of our school's MOST FUN fundraisers and your support is vital. Most importantly this is the  only event where the kids take the lead in raising money for their school.

YOU CAN HELP!

GET SPONSORS! 

We are asking students who are able and willing to participate to get their families, friends, neighbors, and community to sponsor them in the Penguin Dash. We are asking for flat donations from sponsors (e.g. $25 for the whole event).  Donations can be made online using debit cards, credit cards or PayPal. Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, we can only accept ONLINE DONATIONS this year! We can no longer accept cash or checks. We have no way to collect donations in person or at the school.

Earn PBE Strong T-Shirts for ALL students if we meet our Fundraising Goal of $8,000

Our school has an incredible community and we want all Penguins to show their PBE pride. This year, if we meet our fundraising goal, some of the money raised will fund a complimentary PBE Strong t-shirt for every student, whether they raise money or not. Shirts will be distributed after the Dash is completed, in an upcoming school supplies drive. Thank you for your support so every student can proudly represent our PBE Strong community.
