Boosterthon Fun Run kickoffs are coming to elementary schools. Boosterthon’s newest character theme, MindSpark Mystery Lab — Wild West, combines STEAM skills with character building, which was developed in collaboration with Character Counts, the nation’s most reputable character education organization.

The Boosterthon Fun Run program is a combination of fitness and character. Character lessons will be taught daily by the Boosterthon team to our students.

Family and friends anywhere in the world can support the school by making a flat donation or giving pledges toward the number of laps students will run on the day of the Fun Run, which is Dec. 9.

Regardless of financial participation, every student is invited to participate in the entire Fun Run program.

Students will also receive a free prize just for registering on FunRun.com (or having a parent-signed pledge book sent to school).
