How it works:
When you register to run in the Hyattsville Zombie Run, you can also set up a fundraising page that allows your friends and family to sponsor you. Every dollar raised through this fundraising page goes directly to the HES PTA.
For every $10 you raise by noon on October 12th, your name will be entered into a raffle to be held on race day.
1st prize is a bike from Arrow Bicycle, valued up to $500!
2nd place is a Kindle Fire
3rd place will be a gift package from Regal Cinema
Special thanks to Arrow Bicycle for their generous support of this project to help all local Hyattsville schools.
