Fallingbrook Community Elementary School held their 8th annual Run-4-Fun on Thursday, culminating a fundraising effort that saw the school's staff, students and parents raise nearly $10,000 for new equipment.

All the students participated in the run and were encouraged to show their team spirit by wearing an assigned class colour. The group with the most team spirit will have their name engraved on the Run-4-Fun trophy.

After the run, the students and their families enjoyed a BBQ, carnival games, face painting and a books/toys/DVDs sale. They also held a silent auction with some incredible donations from businesses around Ottawa.

Not only was fitness celebrated at Fallingbrook, but this event is the Parent-Teacher Association's biggest fundraiser. In the past, the school has purchased Smartboards, provided special programming, team uniforms and athletic equipment.

This year, the Fallingbrook PTA will use the money raised to purchase additional programming, athletic equipment and technology to better equip the students' classrooms and enhance their learning opportunities.

The students and staff at Fallingbrook would like to thank the following businesses for their generous donations...

- Clintar Landscape Management
- Arnon Construction
- Capital Camps
- TagZone Paintball
- Atwill Service Centre
- Little Ray's Reptile Zoo
- Orleans Optometry Clinic
- Sobey's (Innes & 10th Line)
- New Freedom Chiropractic
- Oaktree Health
- National Gallery of Canada
- National Arts Centre
- Allstate Insurance
