We Need YOUR Help to Make the Prairie Pride 5K a Success!

We currently have well under 400 registrations for our upcoming 5K. We need over 700 registrations to make it a success. THE RACE IS A WEEK AWAY!

5K T-shirtEven if you can’t attend the event, you can still register for the race to support our school …and your registration gets you a free t-shirt!

The Prairie Pride 5K is our second biggest fundraiser — we listened to your requests and eliminated the door-to-door fundraisers — so please support this event to ensure that it is successful, and will continue for years to come!

To date, we have 10 -15 students registered per grade level.  We hope to have many more! To inspire Prairie families to register, we are doing the following:

  • We are offering a PIZZA PARTY for the class having the most student registrations!
  • If we reach our goal of 700 registrants Mr. Merfen will attend Prairie as a STUDENT for a day! He will sit in classrooms, go to specials, play at recess — do everything students do — for ONE FULL SCHOOL DAY!

Sign up today at to guarantee your free race t-shirt!

Please help make this a successful fundraising event. Show your support and register for the Prairie Pride 5K today!
