Run to Fund Race Description

The Coppell ISD Education Foundation invites you to our Annual RUN TO FUND on Saturday, May 9, 2020. This community-based 5K Timed Race and 1-Mile Fun Run will start and finish at Andy Brown Park East, located at 260 E. Parkway Blvd in Coppell.

Proceeds raised from the RUN TO FUND and other Coppell ISD Education Foundation events allow us to award transformative classroom grants and bring innovative learning opportunities to all students in CISD. Additionally, CEF will give $2 from every Run to Fund race entry to the CISD Physical Education Department at the school of your choice. 

For the 2019-2020 school year, here is a partial list of accomplishments achieved by the Coppell Education Foundation:

  • We distributed $12,750 in new-teacher grants to first time educators in CISD to help them set up their classrooms at the beginning of the school year.
  • We awarded over $63,000 in classroom grants

Projects still in progress for this school year include:

  • Our ROBOTICS CAMP, in partnership with Verizon, is underway-- over 100 CISD learners in 5th and 6th grade come together each week after-school to build their own robots at the Coppell Middle School West campus.
  • Over 400 SUPER STAR awards will be presented to elementary and middle school students and teachers/staff members. 
  • We will host our RECOGNITION BANQUET on April 20th to honor the Top 5% of seniors from CHS and New Tech, their honored teachers, the CISD campus Teachers of the Year and 2 CISD Alumni Award recipients.
  • The 5th Annual INTERACTIVE INSTITUTE (STEAM) CAMP will be held June 15-18, 2020. Make plans for your incoming 7th & 8th grade learner to join us.

The Coppell ISD Education Foundation is very proud to have raised and granted over $1.3 Million in classroom grants during the past 18 years.
