The GATOR GALLOP is right around the corner…

Families! Whether you know it fondly or are brand new, read on to get the details for this year's event...

2017 GATOR GALLOP is Saturday, April 1st

This is the 4th year of the Gator Gallop, the ONLY school-wide fundraiser at Greenwood. This 5K Fun Run and Children’s 1M supports the ancillary educational experiences of your child, such as the programs brought to you by Cultural Arts, furniture and books for the library, or supplemental field trip costs… just to name a few.

We also donate 10% of earnings to the Wakefield Educational Foundation (WEF), which supports the entire WPS community. It is grants from WEF that will enable us to provide your children with a richer curriculum integration in the Greenwood Garden and virtual reality exposure to classroom subjects with Google Expeditions.

Your Greenwood Student's Role

Soon, your child will be involved in the fundraising: by gathering pledges, your Greenwood student has the ability to earn registration in the Gallop while raising money for the school. There will be individual and classroom contests based on pledge earnings and run participation. More to come on this in a couple of weeks!

Your Role

As a parent, we look to you to :

  • Pursue any sponsorship opportunities
  • Register yourself for the Gator Gallop
  • Encourage family and friends to register for the Gallop
  • Support your child's pledge drive effort

*Do not register your Greenwood student at this time - we hope to cover that fee through the Student Pledge Drive.

Secure a Sponsor. Be a Sponsor.

For as little as $100, your business, family name or in memoriam will be printed on the race shirts. And, you will have a free race entry! Ask your company or a business you frequent to contribute to the Gator Gallop and receive positive promotion in exchange. Beginning at the $250 level, logos will be printed on the race shirts and other materials. View Sponsorship Opportunities >

In addition to being a fundraiser, this is an amazing community event that both the local families and running communities enjoy!
