Yes, that is correct but there is a catch! You have to register for the pledge drive, help your grade raise $4k* for the school, and walk a 3k to Soldier Field.
Registration for pledge drive is FREE but you must purchase tickets to enter Soldier Field for the Chicago Fire FC vs St. Louis SC match at 12 noon in order to be entered to receive the individual incentives below.**
If your family are not able to join us for the walk, that is ok, students can still register to collect pledges from family & friends or personally pledge toward your team goal.
3k family walk to Soldier Field on May 13th:
On the morning of Saturday, May 13th, we are Rolling back to the Spring of ’88 for a Family 3k walk from the Primary School to Soldier Field to make good on our pledges. At the end of the walk, families have the option to stay and watch the Chicago Fire FC vs. St. Louis SC for a 12pm match at Solider Field**. Every student who register before 4/30 will receive a promo code by email to get $5 off their Chicago Fire match ticket so register early as tickets are limited.
*Out-of-uniform grade incentive:
Grades who reach their fundraising goal of $4k have the opportunity of having out-of-uniform days for up to 3 WEEKS from Monday, May 1st to Friday, May 19th! The sooner each grade reaches their goal, the longer they can be out of uniform so register now, personalize your pages and start collecting pledges!
(Students must comply with school out-of-uniform policies.)
**Individual pledge drive incentives:
(Chicago Fire Match Ticket holders only)
The top 8 students with the most dollar amount raised in pledges by May 10th, who have also purchased a Chicago Fire ticket will receive a Chicago Fire shirt and a spot to have an experience of a lifetime by walking on-field with the Chicago Fire starting 11 players. The other 3 spots will be given at random to any student who is registered for the pledge drive AND have purchased a Chicago Fire ticket before the May 10th draw date.
All students who participate in the pledge drive and purchased a ticket to the Fire Match and raise $100+ by May 10th, will automatically be entered in a drawing for a warm-up watcher spot before the match. The student and a friend will be escorted field-side to cheer on the home team.
