Ensign Weekly Announcements for March 2-6, 2015

Spirit Run - March 15, 2015

Ensign will be participating in the 32nd Annual Newport-Mesa Spirit Run on Sunday, March 15, 2015 at Fashion Island. The Spirit Run is an exciting community event and road race for children and adults.  There are three adult races (15k, 10k, and 5k) and eight youth races (Youth 5k and seven ¼ to 1 mile races). Ensign students will run or walk the Youth or Adult 5k.  The Spirit Run also hosts a Youth and Fitness Expo featuring fun food, live music, and activities such as bungee jumping, rock climbing, and shopping, as well as health and fitness information from doctors, dentists, and fitness experts. 

When Ensign students participate in the Spirit Run, they become more fit and healthier as well as earn money for our school. Ensign is guaranteed a share of the Spirit Run’s net earnings and can maximize our share by maximizing participation as follows:

  1. Register and attend the Spirit Run: Ensign will receive credit for every registrant that identifies Ensign including students, families, teachers, and friends. If Ensign has the most registrants, we can win the “Spirit Award.”

  2. Participate in the pledge campaign: Ensign students may solicit donations for Ensign in support of their participation in the Spirit Run.

  3. Online donations: Online registrants may pledge money to Ensign.

  4. Family sponsorship: Ensign families may become Spirit Run family sponsors. In exchange, they will receive shopping and dining gift cards, free event entries, and more, and may direct 25% of their donation to Ensign. You can find an application at www.nmspiritrun.org on the “sponsor” page or Ensign’s home page.
