What is the Royal Kix Run? As an annual MCS tradition, elementary students participate in a fundraising run along the berm beside 91st street. Students collect sponsors for the run, and the proceeds support special purchases to enrich elementary programming. Prizes are awarded to students who participate in the fundraising effort!
We know this has been a challenging year for your families. Please do not feel any pressure to participate as a donor. Regardless of their donations, all students will participate in the run as we celebrate our collective accomplishments together!
This year, our 2021 Royal Kix Run fundraising project will support the purchase of technology, robotics, coding and building supplies to help us develop a STEM-centered MCS Makerspace!

Some specific technologies and items on our makerspace "wish list" include Ozobots, Makey Makeys, Sphero Bolts, littleBits, Cubelets, MakeDos, Squishy Circuits, Hyperduinos, a green screen, and a variety of building tools/materials!
Students can collect cash donations, cheques made out to Millwoods Christian School, or online donations through CanadaHelps.org. *IMPORTANT* If you are making a donation on behalf of a student using CanadaHelps.org, please ensure you indicate the name of the student you are sponsoring in the "COMPANY" line and the "PERSONAL MESSAGE" text box of the donation form so we can track your runner's earnings and maximize his/her chances of winning a variety of AWESOME prizes! Tax receipts will be issued to donors.
Please submit your donations by our official Royal Kix Run date - Thursday, June 17. Prizes will be announced and awarded the following week. Individual prizes include gift cards for the top earners and a variety of gift card draws (1 draw entry for every $30 dollars raised). Gift card values range from $25-$250 to spend at Toys R Us, Indigo/Chapters, Walmart, and iTunes/App Store! Class prizes include pizza parties, in-class tech/movie parties, and commemorative t-shirts! In addition to these prizes, classes will select a class theme and wear costumes for the event. We'll celebrate the completion of our run with some cold treats and a dance party!
Thanks for supporting this year's Royal Kix Run and the development of a Millwoods Christian School Makerspace!
