Big winners!

Each year children & parents, students & teachers, family & friends join together to participate in our annual Carrera for PEACE. We are grateful for each and every one of them and their ongoing efforts to support PEACE! We try to reward the participants as best we can, to give them an incentive to come back with even more the following year! Each participant recieves a Carrera tshirt and a chance to win fun raffle prizes. We try to make it as fun as possible!

The way it works:

The race costs a minimum of $200pesos

Each student goes out in search of sponsors for those $200pesos. Take your PEACE sponsor form (ask your teacher about it) and start asking neighbors, friends, aunts, uncles and cousins. They can each donate $10pesos, $20pesos, $100pesos towards your race. You need at LEAST $200pesos to enter the carrera, but it is not limited to that!

Fill up a tin can, a ziploc, an envelope, a lunchbox, whatever you can find, with your sponsor money and bring it to the race with you.

Get a good night’s sleep, your bicycle decorated, your favorite running shoes ready and we will see you there!

Prizes will be given for:

Most funds raised per school (participating schools only)

Most funds raised overall

Most creative fundraising container

Winners in each category of the races

Best decorated bicycle

Raffle prizes


Cada año padres y estudiantes, familias y
amigos se reúnen para participar en nuestra carrera anual para PEACE. Estamos
muy agradecidos con cada uno de ellos por su esfuerzo en apoyar a PEACE.
Tratamos de recompensar a los participantes de la mejor forma posible para
darles un incentivo a que vuelvan con más para el siguiente año. Cada
participante recibe una playera y la oportunidad de ganar premios en una rifa. Tratamos
de hacerlo lo más divertido posible!.

Así funciona

La carrera cuesta  $200pesos mínimo

Cada estudiante busca patrocinadores para
esos  $200pesos. Toma tu hoja de patrocinadores
pídela a tu maestro/a y comienza a pedirles a tus vecinos, amigos, tías, tíos y
primos. Así cada uno puede donar $10pesos, $20pesos, $100pesos para tu carrera.
Necesitas por  lo menos  $200pesos para participar en la carrera, pero
no hay límite en eso!

Llena una lata, una,  ziploc, un sobre, una lonchera o lo que puedas
encontrar para guardar  tu dinero de los
patrocinadores y tráelo contigo a la carrera.

Duerme bien, trae tu bicicleta
decorada,  prepara tus tenis favoritos y
nos vemos allá!

Se premiarán a los siguientes:

Escuela que recauda más fondos  (solo escuelas participantes)

Quien recaude más fondos en general

El contenedor de fondos más creativo

Ganadores de por categoría que participe en
las carreras

Mejor bicicleta decorada
