Montpelier-Roxbury Parent Groups
Montpelier Kids Cup originated in 2016 as an idea to fundraise for Union Elementary Schools Parents Group with a focus on community, physical activity and healthy foods.
With a group of amazing volunteers, donations from local businesses and tremendous support from the community and the school district, we had a very successful 1st year of Kids Cup on October 1st, 2016. We raised over $7,000, and about 200 kids participated in the event.
2017 saw even more runners and walkers and the option of a 5K run, as well as increased support and participation from Main Street Middle School and Montpelier High School students. The three schools managed to raise over $10,000 in this single event!
This year's October 7, 2018 event will celebrate the union of Montpelier and Roxbury school districts, and we hope it will be the best one yet.
Where does the money go?
Proceeds from this event benefit all of the Montpelier-Roxbury Parent Groups. These funds support extracurricular and curricular activities, school ground improvements, and teacher appreciation activities that are not covered by the school budget.
