Preschool fundraiser brings in $1,500

Posted

FAIRVIEW — Fairview Eagle’s Nest Preschool held its annual Trike-A-Thon April 11 in the gym at Mio Baptist Church.

The fundraiser is an effort to encourage physical activity in preschoolers, as well as raise funds for the program. Parent Board Secretary Jaleesa Cote said fundraisers help keep tuition costs low, and allow the school to buy supplies for day-to-day operations.

The preschoolers were tasked with getting sponsors for their tricycles/bicycles and the parent board sent letters out to local businesses. Cote said she was happy with the outcome.

“We were thrilled to see approximately $1,500 in donations come in,” Cote said. “Over $1,000 of that came from the preschoolers’ efforts to gain sponsors. We had a great turnout of kids and parents and hope to continue to use this event as a core fundraiser for our program in the future.”
