Husky Hustle

  The Husky Hustle  
The 2019 Husky Hustle is here and we are excited to have you as part of the Hutchinson team!
What is the Husky Hustle? The Husky Hustle is Hutchinson Elementary’s largest fundraiser of the year! Not only do we raise money for the school, but the children get to participate and have fun too. The “Hustle”refers to running laps on our fun run course! Trust us, this is FUN and your child can be as competitive or goofy as they want. Our goal: $20,000 or roughly $100/per child.
How to raise funds:
A. Online (credit card)
B. In person (cash/check)
We need all PARENTS to do these three simple steps to get started.
1. REGISTER your child by visiting www.getmovinfundhub.com (Please note: There is no “g” in movin)  It’s free, easy and fast!
a. Enter school identifier code: 5d2ca3127e8f0 <- (that’s a zero)
2. Email or Text your child’s fundraising webpage with 10-15 friends and family. It’s super
3. Post of Facebook or Twitter. It’s two clicks of a button to post. The average parent has
300 Facebook friends. You’ll be surprised when donations come in from distant relatives
and friends. Post and see what happens!
We can earn money through the funds raised above but also through cash and check. Donators
can choose to give a flat fee or donate per lap (Flat donation is easiest but we all know those
who are competitive). See attached donation sheet. Money will be collected the week after the
fun run.
Why raise funds?
The Husky Hustle is the largest fundraiser of the year. In the past we have used the money to
buy CHROME books, send teachers to advanced education workshops, finance classroom
educational opportunities, and of course some fun items/activities for the kids!

  • Your child will earn a prize just for registering!

The Fundhub webpage is fun. Your child can make their own video that is attached to his page! There will be a prize for making a video! It also keeps track of their goals, how much they have raised, and where the funds are coming from! You can also look at the school webpage/video, see a map as to where all the donations are coming from, and view our progress.

Collect funds:Ask your neighbor, friend, grandma, co-workers to support Hutchinson Elementary school. They can help by donating a flat amount or pledge a certain amount per lap. The course is approximately 400 feet or about 1/13thof a mile.  Preschool will run for 10 minutes, kindergarteners will run for 20 minutes, and grades 1-5 will run 30 minutes. The average kid runs around 20 laps.

There are prizes and incentives for children and classrooms to meet their goals!

Race Day- Friday, October 4th

Race day is a fun event! There will be a DJ, balloons, and of course Mr. Husky running around! We encourage all parents to come cheer on their child and be part of the Hutchinson community. A volunteer sign up for race day will be coming out shortly.

Your child will come home with a slip that says how many laps they ran. It will be the family’s responsibility to figure out how much each person owes if they pledged per lap. Once all funds are collected turn your money into the school.

PTO will help keep track of online and cash prizes via the Fundhub website.

Once we have all money and prizes assembled, we will have a finale assembly where top earners are recognized, drawing prizes given away, and Mrs. Hoffman will be covered in silly string! The video game truck for top earners will be on campus November 8th.

Overall, this is a super fun school event which energizes the whole school for a month. Look for more information, reminders, and fun facts coming home with your kids!

Thank you again for making Hutchinson a thriving community! See you on race day.
