Rhino Run

Join Our Annual Rhino Run!

Come join us on Saturday morning, November 12, 2022, for the PTA’s annual Rhino Run! This wonderful event is a one mile fun run around the school neighborhood (and early morning dance party!) in support of the Rosemary Hills Elementary School PTA. Feel free to walk, run, stroll, or jog! Strollers and baby-joggers are welcome.

Entry fees for the run are $15 per runner or $25 per family. (One family registration covers all family members who would like to participate in the run – no need to purchase more than one family registration for individual family members.) You may register online below or by returning the registration form via backpack mail. Day-of registrations will also be accepted. *All RHES families and children are encouraged to participate regardless of their ability to pay.

We also encourage Rosemary Hills runners to seek sponsors to pledge a donation to support their participation in the run — by either clicking the link below or returning their pledge form and donations through backpack mail. Pledged funds will go to the Rosemary Hills PTA to help pay for teacher instructional support and appreciation, student assemblies, after-school enrichment scholarships, academic initiatives, capital improvement projects, and much more!

After the run, please stay for our Thanksgiving Boxes food drive event. We will be sorting, packing, and decorating food boxes with all of the food you’ve donated over the course of the month. Each box will help Rosemary Hills families make a complete Thanksgiving feast. Your child/children will head home from the event knowing they’ve made a meaningful contribution to their community this giving season.

If you would like to sponsor a Thanksgiving Box (or two or three…) for RHES families in need, please click here.
