Boosterthon Fun Run is our largest fundraiser of the year! For 2 weeks the Boosterthon team is on campus working with our kids. It kicks off with a high energy pep rally on September 25, that gets the students excited about earning funds for their school. Boosterthon continues with daily team huddles, character lessons, fitness challenges and ends with the exciting FUN RUN on 10/4! EVERY student participates and the whole school joins in the fun! It's a great way for our school to build community and students to remember that Fitness is Fun!
Parents can help by helping your students earn pledges from family and friends! We will need volunteers the day of the Fun Run to pass out water and mark laps. We encourage all parents to show up to cheer on their students during the FUN RUN!
JOIN THE FUN! Our Boosterthon Fun Run is Thursday, October 4. We will need volunteers to help mark laps on students' shirts and to fill water cups at the water station. Finally, we'll need a few people to help us distribute NCE yard signs. Please use the grade-specific links below to sign up to be a part of your students' big event!
For more information, please contact Lacey Stewart firstname.lastname@example.org!
1 What is the Fun Run?
The Fun Run is a 9-day program and is this semester’s biggest fundraiser, taking place on October 4. Families will be getting pledges for the laps their student runs at the Fun Run. Funds raised from this event go toward Field Trips, Classroom Supplies and School Programs!
2 How can parents register their student(s)?
First, parents log in or sign up on funrun.com. Then, parents can register their student as a participant on funrun.com by searching for the school by name. Students get a free prize just by being registered.
3 How can students get pledges?
Parents can help connect students to sponsors by sharing their pledge page on Facebook, through email, or even a text. Sponsors can enter and pay for those pledges online on your student’s page!
4 Will my student really run 30 laps? How big is the track?
Yes, even kindergarteners! The Fun Run track is about 1/16th of a mile, 1/4 the size of a normal high school track. The average student will run 30-35 laps and will have a goal to run at least 30 laps to help their school. The most any student will be counted for is 35 laps.
5 Can students receive a prize for flat donations?
Yes! All flat donations count toward pledges and are rounded by 30 (the average student will run over 30 laps). So, a $30 donation is the same as $1 per lap. A $60 donation is the same as $2 per lap, etc.
6 What if families don’t have Internet?
If a student’s family does not have Internet access, parents and families can use the pledgebook to record all pledges and send in the payment with the pledgebook. If students turn their pledge and payment into their teacher, please make sure student and class name are listed on the pledgebook.
7 Can sponsors pay for pledges online?
YES! Sponsors will be prompted to pay online for all pledges, even per lap pledges. Sponsors will receive an email after the run with the amount of their payment based on how many laps were run.
8 Can I make a pledge if I don’t want to pay online?
Yes. You can either turn in the payment for a pledge listed on the pledgebook, or you can request to turn off online payments for your account through our help desk on funrun.com.
9 Can I Write A Check?
For pledges not made on funrun.com, you can turn in cash or check.
Please make checks out to: NCE PTA
