What is a Pledge Per Lap and Simple Donation?

Pledge Per Lap means that you pledge a dollar amount for every lap that your student completes at the Apex Fun Run (all students run between 26-36 laps, not more than 36). Simple Donation means that you pledge to pay a flat amount regardless of how many laps your student runs. For example, you can pledge $1 per lap or pledge $30 flat donation regardless of how many laps the student runs. Pledges per lap allow students to reach the goal, but either pledge works great!


How do I edit a pledge?

Pledges can be edited by going to the "My Pledges" page and clicking the "Edit" button below each sponsor. All pledges are locked in at midnight PST each night so that the Apex Fun Run team can coordinate prizes. If you need to change pledge information for a sponsor, please click on the ”Help Request” question below and tell our team. Someone will get back to you as soon as they can from the school.


How are the awards calculated and earned by each student?

The awards are given to each student based on the pledge per lap amount raised.  Simple donations can also help students reach awards: $30 of simple flat donations is considered to be equal to $1 pledged per lap. So if someone gave $60 simple donation to the student, it would result in $2 pledged per lap increase and prize level.


Who do I write checks to? What if we receive cash early?
The money is due after the race.  Please make sure to write all checks out to Rucker Home and School . If you receive money before the race, just keep them in a safe place in the front office until the Collections meeting with the Apex team.


How do I enter offline pledges?

If anyone brings in money before the race, just keep it in a safe place in the front office until the collections meeting with the PTO/A team.  They will take those payments and log them into the Collections Recap sheet and give to the Apex team.


When is the money due?

All funds are due as soon as possible after the Apex Fun Run.  Sponsors can pay all Simple Donations at the time that they pledge before the race.  All other sponsors can either pay from the email they receive or they can push cash and checks in their collection envelope and bring back to their teacher.


What do we do with pledges if students miss the fun run?

If any student is gone, sick or hurt, they will receive an automatic 30 laps on the system.  This will allow the sponsors to pay their per lap donations online if they still want to help the school (which they all do).  For all top prizes, students will need to run at least 26 laps and collect the funds before being awarded those prizes.
