Join Us for the Miner Gold Rush and Fall Festival
The Miner Gold Rush (MGR) and Fall Festival kicks off the school year bringing our families together and the PRA vision to life. Choose to register for the 1-mile fun run or the 5k competitive run and experience the Fall Festival! There will be fun for the whole family with activities, food trucks, booths, picnic areas, and more. It is open to participation for all students, family members, and the community. MGR promotes healthy competition, drives school spirit, and helps raise money. Your support matters to our school.
Dig for Gold Scavenger Hunt
September 18 - 24
Leading up to the event, compete with your team (family, class, club, and athletic team) in the Dig for Gold Scavenger Hunt to show your spirit and have fun. Each activity will earn participants points as well as opportunities to earn bonus points. Winners will be announced on race day. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes will be awarded in each grade level (K-8). HS Peaks will have the opportunity to win Peak Points.
Generous donors like you are the key to our school success and make it possible for PRA to provide excellence and to say “yes” to innovation. Ask your friends, neighbors, and family members to sponsor your participation in the Miner Gold Rush with a tax-deductible ﬂat donation. Reach certain amounts and earn prizes for those pledges. Don’t forget, a student’s race registration fee counts towards their goal and prizes (student must register at minergoldrush.com)!
HOW DO I START?
Step 1: Register online beginning August 13th at minergoldrush.com. The registration fee includes race t-shirt, entry to race, and contributes towards your donation prize level (student participants only).
Step 2: Collect donations for PRA! Even if you cannot attend the race, you can still collect donations and earn prizes. Please ask your friends, neighbors and family members to sponsor your participation in the Miner Gold Rush with a tax-deductible ﬂat donation. Donations may be made online under “Donations” at minergoldrush.com or a check payable to “Prospect Ridge Academy.” Be sure to include the student’s first and last name on each donation so it can be credited toward their pledge totals.
