Fun Run - Do those words really belong together?

Today was Daybreak Elementary's Fun Run. I think that the PTA did a superb job! It was amazing - they had the streets closed so that all of the kids at Daybreak (all 1,200 of them!) could run 2.1 miles. This was their fundraiser this year. The fundraiser was such a success! No selling of overpriced wrapping paper! (WoooHOooo!) It was all donations! And they raised $17,000. I loved that they did not focus on prizes! They really did not even mention prizes when they announced the fundraiser. The prizes - were great - but all donated. Plus, it was so fun today to have the fun run, with all the parents there - encouraging fitness and fun!
