The Apex Fun Run is coming to RMRE on Wednesday, November 29th


Thank you for your support of Red Mountain Ranch and the investments you make in your children’s lives. We are so excited to introduce you to this semester’s only major fundraiser, the Apex Fun Run!  The Apex Fun Run will last for 2 weeks and kicked off with a fun run, today, November 16th!

Please look for your child’s Pledge Kit that they received today (Thursday) as well as emails from your teachers the following day.  Please visit to hear about this interactive program that helps schools all over the country raise money, while promoting leadership and fitness in the classes.  This year’s character theme is Apex United where students will follow Sam, Rob, Wendy, Robin and Luke who together make up the United Squad. We catch up with our characters while the deceiving Mr. E is constantly testing them. With special powers provided by Omega these five friends will truly learn what it means to be united along with a surprise none of them saw coming. For parents:


During the Apex Fun Run, students are challenged to get pledges for the laps they will run on Wednesday, 11/29 tohelp their school.  Students will run for 30 minutes and average 26-36 laps, with the maximum amount of laps being 36 (each lap is 1/16th of a mile).  Sponsors can pledge $1, $2, $5 or any other amount for each lap students run.  All participants will receive an access code that allows you to enter pledges online.  Funds raised this year will be going to the school to pay for classroom requests, technology projects and AED machines for our campus!

The Apex Fun Run is for every student regardless of financial giving.  All students will receive Apex bands, race-day lap counters, and team awards.  We invite all parents to come to the Apex Fun Run and share in this great event!  The times for the Apex Fun Run are as follows:

You can help our school be successful in the following four ways:


  • Help connect your child to potential sponsors (family/friends) to acquire pledges.
  • Ask your child about the “United” character lessons, and download the “Apex Fun Run” App!
  • Come to the Apex Fun Run and don’t forget to invite others to attend our fun-filled community event.
  • Help volunteer for the race!  We need a few parents to help cheer on students and mark laps.  If you would like to volunteer for your student’s race, use the Sign-Up Genius link sent out by the PTC or email your child’s teacher for the link. Thank you!

Thank you again for your continued support—we are so excited to begin this journey with you!
