Rummel Creek Elementary (RCE) students Kaylee Tan and Sofia Alonso (pictured, from left) packaged lunches to contribute to the new Roadrunner Do-Gooders fundraising campaign. When it was time for RCE to plan the annual fundraising event, they tried something new. Instead of the common practice of paying an outside fundraising company to facilitate a campaign, RCE decided to handle everything themself and created the Roadrunner Do-Gooders program. Parents Annie Gregersen and Celeste Ruldolph spearheaded the new effort that involved students “doing good” in the community in exchange for financial pledges to the school from family and friends. The new program was a huge success, and students dedicated themselves to helping community members while raising $90,000 to fund school supplies, field trips, and more.
