Wildcats Fun Run

Wildcats Fun Run Event Description  

This annual October tradition is run by Boosterthon – the group that makes it fun for everyone!

  • It’s more than just a fundraiser. Boosterthon impacts students with the most innovative character lessons in America. Plus, they’re collaborative partners with CHARACTER COUNTS!, the nation’s most reputable character ed organization.
  • Powerful pledging technology:
    • Online web page customized to your child.
    • Custom video that casts your child as the star of an epic film and enables you to raise more than ever.
    • Safely pledge with the highest levels of data security.
  • Every student is included!  We believe no child should be left out!  It matters that every student has fun, feels included, and walks away with a giant smile, whether families financially give or not.
    • EVERY student receives a FREE wristband when they are registered online.
    • EVERY student has fun in our interactive character huddle.
    • EVERY student runs in the action packed Fun Run.
