The Gateway Eagles Marathon is BACK in FULL SWING!
Easily one of our most anticipated events of the year, our students have the opportunity to
RAISE and RUN!
RAISE: Our nearly 100-year-old building is a piece of Poulsbo history! Original construction began in 1920, followed by additions in 1930, 1941, 1946, and 1962. A century's worth of children have walked our hallways, and with that, comes need of repairs and upgrades. Students can collect a pledge per lap they run, or flat donations.
Our goal is $25,000!
Over the summer, our bathroom floors required immediate attention before the beginning of the school year. Due to rising construction costs and supply chain difficulties, the grand total became more than we had originally anticipated. Thankfully, we were able to complete the job just in time for students to return on August 31. We are dedicating this year's marathon funds to complete payment of this project!
RUN: After pledges have been collected, the marathon is a GO! On a hopefully sunny October afternoon, our students will run, walk and skip around the half mile perimeter of Gateway Fellowship's property. The day is filled with fun, laughter, physical activities, snacks and more! Teachers and parents join in, as well! The marathon is then followed by a block party to celebrate, complete with food trucks and bouncy houses!
Your prayers are also appreciated for good weather, safety for our runners and to thank God that He provides what we need!
Thanks for supporting our students and our school!
