The Boosterthon Fun Run experience combines a fun fitness event, an interactive character program, and a highly profitable school fundraiser. It’s all wrapped up in an unforgettable experience that is fun for students and hassle-free for schools.
The great thing is, there is nothing to sell and no door-to-door visits. Parents help your school simply by gathering pledges from friends and family. Sponsors can pledge a per lap amount or flat donation toward your school’s Fun Run. The lap average for all students on the day of the Fun Run is 30-35. So, if a family-friend pledges a dollar per lap, that would be a tax deductible gift to the school of $30-$35.
September 6th — Pep Rally
This is the opening kickoff to the Boosterthon. The Boosterthon Fun Run team leads this exciting assembly-style meeting in the school gym. With our LIVE program, the team explains that the Boosterthon Fun Run will be happening next week and how every student will run as a school. The team also talks about how students will learn character lessons over the next eight days and how families can get pledges to help their school. Students leave school that day with an informational Pledgebook for parents to review.
September 16 — Glow Run
This is the day everyone’s been waiting for! When students arrive to class, they prepare to come out to the speedway. Students run for 30 minutes to upbeat, themed music. Parents line the inside of the track as the official cheer squad.
Most students run somewhere between 30 and 35 laps (35 is the lap cap). From the water station to the sound system, the Boosterthon Fun Run team is on-hand to take care of every detail and ensure that students, teachers, and parents all have a blast. As the run ends, laps are tallied and students review the character lessons.
