Boosterthon Fun Run

One of this year’s main fundraiser is the Trailblazer Fun Run! It’s a two-week program that kicks off with a Pep Rally on Wed. 9/5. Families will then gather pledges for every lap your student runs (30-35 laps), and we’ll celebrate at the Fun Run on Fri. 9/14. With our big goal of raising $25,000 for the purchase of Playground Equipment & Reducing Operating Costs, we asked the Fun Run experts at Boosterthon to power our Fun Run and make it easier, more profitable, and more fun.

Students will also experience an amazing character theme, MINDSPARK MYSTERY LAB! Boosterthon’s most exciting theme yet combines S.T.E.A.M skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) with character-building. While they’re teaming up with the MindSpark Kids to solve mysteries, our students will learn five 21st-century character traits that will help strengthen themselves and our world.

Donations will go towards the purchase of Playground Equipment and Reducing Operating Costs and to the entire two-week experience. So please help our school by reaching out to sponsors. Also, all families are invited to come out and cheer on your student at the Fun Run! Thank you for your support!

On Friday, 9/14, parents are welcome to cheer on their student as they complete 30-35 laps – complete with DJ & lap markings.  The Fun Run Track is approx 1/16 of a mile.  Drinking water will be available for the outdoor run. 

  • 2YO, Pre-K, JK: 9am-10am in Gym. 
  • K-8 grades: 1:30-2:30pm outdoors at Howard Park (across Lake street by Church)
If the school reaches their profit goal, K-8 will have a COLOR RUN!!   
Prepare to have fun and get colorized!  Students will be periodically colorized (powdered with color) while running.  The experience is safe, fun and designed for older students. 
  • The color is made of safe, FDA/EPA approved corn starch, washable. 
  • Students should be prepared to get messy!  Recommend wearing a white or light colored t-shirt (shows color) and athletic shorts.  Clothes that you don’t mind being ruined. 
  • Face protection for eyes, nose, and/or mouth is optional.  School will be providing bandanas for anyone interested. 
  • Students will be cleaned off after the run, but bringing a change of clothes is highly recommended
  • Adults will toss the majority of the color into the air – above the heads or chest down.
