OCTOBER 1, 2021
We’re excited to kick off our 28th Annual Rocket Run, Oakdale School Foundation’s largest fundraising event of the year! The Rocket Run includes all grades as they walk or run through designated half-mile and one-mile courses around the school’s campus, in a non-competitive, family-friendly environment. Kids take charge of their education and health by gaining sponsors for a day of fun and fitness to raise money for educational grants at Oakdale.
Your family. Your team. Your impact.
We are all part of the Oakdale School Foundation. However your family chooses to participate in the progress of Oakdale School, every student - including yours! - benefits from numerous OSF-funded programs that our teachers implement within their classrooms each year.
Please join us in continuing to make the Rocket Run a fun, successful event that allows us to fund these grant requests that improve the quality of our kids' education and the value of the Oakdale community.
Thank you for your participation and support!
