Events

Eagle Run

Fall

This is a big fundraiser for the Edison PTA

Students run around the field and try to get as many laps as they can in their allotted time (each grade level has a time limit that fits their abilities).

Students can get pledges for how many laps they complete or a general donation.

Eagle Run 2022 will be raising funds for the Para Champaign for Para Professionals at Edison for the 2023/2022 school year.


Our Goal this year is $100,000! Which is a huge goal, but the impacts the Edison Para's do for our students and teachers is HUGE!


As of October 13th, we have raised over $25,000 for our Goal!
