Annangrove Public School students have raised $6,511.53 for their school after hosting a CUA School Fun Run on 21/09/2017.
In the lead-up to the event, students pounded the pavement and raised funds online by seeking sponsorship from their local community.
CUA School Fun Run organiser, Kylie, said the teachers were excited to get behind a fundraising activity that promoted such a healthy interaction with the community and taught kids about setting and achieving financial goals.
Parents enthusiastically supported the initiative as it steered their kids away from traditional fundraising efforts which often involve selling junk food. The CUA School Fun Run program also provides students and families with additional tools and practical advice from the online health hub to encourage ongoing healthy habits at home.
