Why Boosterthon?

The Boosterthon Fun Run program is a healthy alternative to traditional product sales that raises much-needed funds for our school and over 1400 other schools across America this year. The nine-day program also promotes FITNESS,LEADERSHIP, and CHARACTER during the fun-filled experience. PLUS, EVERY STUDENT IS INCLUDED whether he or she participates financially or not.

This year’s character theme is ROCK’N TOWN LIVE, a music festival theme all about COMMUNITY.

Students will learn five ways they can make their community rock!

Boosterthon Fun Facts Basics



The event kicked off with a 30-minute school-wide Pep Rally and concludes with the Boosterthon Fun Run event.

Students gather pledges towards the number of laps they will run at the Boosterthon Fun Run. Students will run between 30-35 laps. 35 is the lap max.

Every student participates in the Fun Run, regardless of pledges raised, and receives a daily character sticker and access to Boosterthon character resources.

Pledges are entered at FUNRUN.COM. Each student has his/her own safe and secure Boosterthon Fun Run webpage to log in pledges and watch character videos. Sponsors will also have the ability to pay their pledges online.

The Boosterthon Fun Run team spends 300 hours organizing the event, freeing up our teachers and administrators to focus on education!


Thanks all your support!
