Parent Letter - Colour Run

Colour Run
Dear Parent/Guardian
RE: CUA School Colour-Run
William Duncan State School will be holding the CUA School Colour Run as a major fundraising event this year.  The day itself will be held on Thursday 12 October 2017!  Funds raised by the Colour Run will contribute to supporting the rollout of the air-conditioning project. Details of this project were recently outlined in the school’s newsletter.
About the Program
The CUA School Colour-Run promotes healthy and active lifestyles while helping us raise funds! It’s all about participation, with students treated to a great day as a reward for their fundraising efforts.  Family support is key to our fundraising success and we encourage everyone to get involved.
How Does My Child Fundraise?
All students have received a Sponsorship Form with instructions on how to raise money and order prizes.
Students can use online fundraising and their sponsorship booklets to collect cash and online donations, jotting down their supporters for ease.
Students who raise just $10 will receive a reward for their effort. The more they raise, the better their reward, which you can see yourself in the sponsorship form. We have educated students on the dangers of door knocking without adult supervision, and we encourage you to reiterate this at home. The best people to ask for sponsorship are people you know (e.g. friends, family, work colleagues and neighbours).
Online Fundraising
The easiest way to help your child raise money is through online fundraising. Students raise an average of $120 using online fundraising, which really benefits all involved; plus, you don’t have to worry about handling money! To set up an online student profile please visit:
Getting Involved on Event Day
Not only can you support the school and participants with your sponsorship – but you can join in on the fun! We welcome parents and family members to attend the CUA School Colour-Run event day. We also seek volunteers to help out on the day. If you can assist on the day please email the committee at
Ordering Prizes
To reward your child for getting involved, they’ll receive a prize based on the total amount they’ve fundraised. Please either create, or log in to, your profile page at Once there, click the ‘Order My Prizes’ button and follow the prompts. Please note, all cash money needs to be returned to the school’s tuckshop on or before Monday 16 October 2017. Student prizes will arrive shortly after.
Thank you, good luck and happy fundraising!
