What is Run Wild?

What is Run Wild?



Run Wild at the Creek will be held on Friday, March 8th during school hours. Students will be running, walking, hopping, skipping, and jumping during their specials time. This is not a timed race; this is to promote health, fitness, and fun all while raising funds for our school. All Willow Creek students will participate in the fun run and get a Popsicle  at the end of the event. 

Money MUST be turned in by Wednesday, March 6th in order to be counted towards class goals for reward parties.     

This year’s Run Wild is a Dr. Seuss Theme - we are encouraging the students to run WILD! They can wear crazy socks, have crazy hair, and mismatch their clothing, or dress as their favorite Dr. Seuss character. Please ensure shorts and shirts still follow the dress code. All students are encouraged to wear their class t-shirt on the day of the race to wear while they run. Temporary hair color will be allowed this day ONLY.

We encourage families to participate either in cheering them on, volunteering with the run, or running side by side with your student! Times by grade level are:


4th   Grade   9:00 – 9:55

2nd   Grade  10:10 –11:05

3rd   Grade   11:10–12:05

Kindergarten  12:35–1:30

1st   Grade  1:35–2:30

Spirit Signs


  Spirit Signs are another way to cheer on your child while they run.  You may purchase a $5 blank sign to decorate  as you please, or a $10 printed sign, with space for you to add your child's name, and other embellishments to your liking.  

Signs are sent home with your child a few days before the event for you to decorate - You can be as creative as you want and purchase as many signs as you wish! Send the sign back to school no later than Thursday, March 10th and we will display your sign around the track on race day!! 

Spirit Sign purchases DO NOT count towards the classroom fundraising goal.

This goal is easily attainable if each student is able to make a $20-25  donation.  Every little bit from friends and family helps!
