Breckenridge’s East and South Elementary School students celebrated their recent fundraising efforts with the promised Day of Awesomeness.

After spending the past few weeks raising money through the Step It Up/PoP  program, the students were treated to some fun time at Buckaroo Stadium on Friday, March 10.

The event included eight inflatable bounce house-style games, including an obstacle course, giant slide, basketball hoop and other sports-related games, and one of the favorites, the Toxic Meltdown, which required participants to react quickly to jump over or duck under the rotate arms.

Additionally, there was a pop-up Cash Cube, where qualifying students and teachers could grab as much floating cash as they could.
