Fun Run (volunteers needed) – Monday September 24th -Thursday October 4th

Please look for your child’s Pledge Kit that they received in their Friday Folders on Thursday 9/20/18. We will have emails coming from your teachers.  Please visit funrun.boosterthon.com to hear about this interactive program that helps schools all over the country raise money, while promoting leadership and fitness in the classes.


During the Boosterthon Fun Run, students are challenged to get pledges for the laps they will run on Thursday October 4th to help their school.  Students will run for 30 minutes and average 26-36 laps, with the maximum amount of laps being 36 (each lap is 1/16th of a mile).  Sponsors can pledge $1, $2, $5 or any other amount for each lap students run.  They can also do a flat donation!  All participants are able to enter pledges online but it isn’t limited to online only we will also accept checks and cash and your child will earn prizes the same as those that have online donations. 


The Boosterthon Fun Run is for every student regardless of financial giving.  All students will receive race-day lap counters, and classroom awards.  We invite all parents to come to the Boosterthon Fun Run and share in this great event!  The times for the Boosterthon Fun Run are as follows:

  • Fun Run 1: Thursday, October 4th @ 9:15-10:15 for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades

  • Fun Run 2: Thursday, October 4th @ 10:30-11:30 for Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grades

You can help our school be successful in the following three ways:

  • Help connect your child to potential sponsors (family/friends) to acquire pledges.

  • Come to the Boosterthon Fun Run and don’t forget to invite other to attend our fun-filled community event on our field.

  • Help volunteer for the race!  We need parents to work before the fun run and day to cheer, hand out water and mark laps.
