We’re so excited about this year’s Fun Run powered by Boosterthon. The Fun Run is a fitness-based fundraiser that teaches students about character and requires ZERO selling. It’s also all-inclusive, which means even students who cannot participate financially still get to be part of the fun! All you need to do is register on visit www.funrun.com. Simple as that!
The Fun Run is a pledge-based fundraiser, meaning students will be getting pledges for the number of laps they’ll run at the Fun Run held on campus next week. Students will run 30 to 35 laps at the Fun Run, so a pledge
of $1 per lap will come out to around $30-$35. However, students can also receive flat donations. The fun run will be January 19th so lets get these pledges in!
This is just a friendly reminder that classes will resume on Monday, January 8th. We hope you enjoy the remainder of your break.
