Over the ten-year history of Laps for Laurel, our students have raised nearly $150,000 with more than 95% of the profits benefiting Laurel students and staff.  $30,000 directly supported health and fitness at Laurel with the remaining funds made available to teachers through a grant process, held three times annually.
In the past, the funds have purchased books; literacy, math and technology tools; field trips; classroom aids; school yearbook subsidies; live performances for the students; and school infrastructure.  In the fall of 2017, the school earned $21,619 in student-raised pledges.  The students and staff ran over 950 miles or just over 2 miles each on average.

Laps for Laurel is the main fundraising event for our school, Laurel Elementary School of Arts and Technology. The event allows students to raise money while promoting health and wellness.




We're aiming to beat last year's donations of over $23,500 in pledges. Help us make this year's event another success!
Each fall, the Laurel student body and staff have the chance to get outside and run or walk laps around the school in a fun-filled, music-enhanced environment.  Students ask friends and family to sponsor their participation. Students earn prizes for the pledges collected.  There are also prizes for the classes in each grade that run the most laps.  Every year, we find that this high energy event inspires our 500 participants and volunteers alike. 


This year, we’re excited to offer online donation through Paypal. You can use your credit or debit card to donate in an amount of your choosing.
