Croc Mile 2022-2023 Fundraiser

Where Our Crocs Rock

We are excited to announce details for this years Croc Mile. As in years past, the Croc Mile will be organized and managed 100% by the PTA which allows 100% of the money raised (minus CC processing fees) to stay within Sycamore Creek. Parents ARE permitted to watch or run with their Crocs Run during their child’s designated run time. We are so excited for this years Croc Mile and hope you will be too!

All participating Crocs will run around our main entrance loop on their assigned Croc Mile Run Day. Top Students and the top class from EACH grade level will be rewarded for total donations earned. Students will also have a chance to earn raffle tickets for pledges collected. Classes will also have a chance for class rewards based on the overall pledge amounts collected for various pledge levels. CROCs that participate are encouraged to collect flat pledges (donations) to benefit the mission of the PTA. See details below on how to create your unique fundraising page along with details on how to choose your runner status!
