Day in the Park Sunday August 21st.
We are happy to announce that we will hold the Day in the Park on August 21st. at North Park! We hope to see you all back for a wonderful day of music, food, a silent auction, kids activities and more fun with our neighbors and friends.
After two years without the Day in the Park fundraiser, we have been amazed, humbled and so proud of the overwhelming generosity and support of the 4PeteSake community. 4PeteSake has been able to help River Valley residents in need throughout the pandemic, with both Fall and Spring Funding in 2020 and 2021. The impact on the recipients and their families has been life changing as they cope with financial hardship created by health conditions. We cannot thank you enough.
The 3rd Annual 4PeteSake Golf Outing will be held at the House on the Rock Resort on Friday, September 16th. Please click on the golf link HERE for more information and to register your team.
RUN/WALK & BIKE
A 5k Run/Walk and 15 or 30 mile Bike ride BOTH get the day started at 9:00 a.m. Day-of registration for both events begins at 8:00 a.m. The entrance fee for each event is $30 or $25 each for families or 4 or more. Questions about the Run/Walk can be directed to Cristin Lagerman at firstname.lastname@example.org. For questions about the bike ride, contact Lisa Roelke at email@example.com. Plunge for Pete! Participate in the Walk or Bike Ride and finish by splashing down in the pool. There will be a pool party from 10:00 a.m. until Noon on August 21st for all participants.

This year we are expanding the sponsorship recognition of the Run/Walk and Bike ride listing sponsors on the backs of BOTH shirts! Your company name will be printed, rather than a logo, to be more recognizable. The golf outing will be held on Friday, September 16. As before, there are several levels of sponsorship available. Details about the Run/Walk/Ride and Golf Outing sponsorships are outlined in the Event Sponsorship Forms attached below.
You might also consider organizing or sponsoring a group from your business to participate in the Run/Walk or Bike Ride. Registration forms are available in the run/walk/bike information above.
If you have golfers at your business, consider organizing or sponsoring a team. Please go to the Golf Outing Tab for registration forms. If your company would like to make a business donation instead of or in addition to a sponsorship, please know that we would be very grateful for gifts of any amount.
Throughout the pandemic, the generosity of area businesses and individuals have allowed 4PeteSake to continue to provide meaningful, life-changing support to those residents of the River Valley School District who are in a financial crisis due to a health-related event. Your support helps make the River Valley an extraordinary place to live.
