Boosterthon - Eagle Fun Run!


Date: Wednesday, February 5 -12, 2020 Pledge Window

Fun Run: Thursday, February 13, 2020

Parents and Families,

Pledging is NOW OPEN for this year’s main fundraiser: The Eagle Fun Run!

What is the Eagle Fun Run?

It’s a two-week program that kicks off with a Pep Rally on February 4th. Families will then gather pledges for every lap your student runs (30-35 laps) at the Eagle Fun Run, which will happen on February 13th. We’ve asked the experts at Booster to power our fundraiser to make it easier, more profitable, and more fun.

Students will also experience an amazing character theme, MINDSPARK: WILD WEST! Booster’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 save Dr. Shock, our students will learn five character traits that will help strengthen themselves and our world.


100% of families get pledges from sponsors

5 pledges per student

$20,000 School Profit for Technology & Curriculum.
