This year’s theme is GRAND LAND ADVENTURE; a national parks theme all about building character through the rugged beauty and wild wonders of the great outdoors. By exploring some of the most iconic national parks in America, students will learn how to live a life of adventure and character.
WHAT IS THE BOOSTER FUN RUN?
Booster is back this year with the always exciting in-person Fun Run. Students will run around a track for a set amount of time. They will be getting exercise while raising money for their schools.
Booster Fun Run is the largest fundraiser the KPKG PTA does each year to raise funds to support our students and schools. By collecting pledges from family and friends across the world, you are supporting all the Kings Park/Kings Glen community.
Our school goal is to raise $35,000 for flexible seating, updates to the Kings Glen library, indoor and outdoor sensory areas at Kings Park, as well as for other school and PTA projects.
Students can win prizes for collecting pledges. Prizes will be delivered daily to their classrooms.
All students will participate in the Fun Run event on September 23, regardless of financial participation.

KICK-OFF DAY – SEPTEMBER 14
We are excited to kick off the event on Wednesday, September 14th. Students will view the Booster Kick-Off video and hear directly from our Booster teammates.

- Team Day 2 – Stewardship at Everglades
- Team Day 3 – Bravery at Yosemite

- Team Day 5 – Wonder at Denali
- Team Day 6 – Resolution
Each night of the event we will have a nightly challenge plus a weekend challenge where students can win a bonus prize.
PLEDGING & SHARING
Pledging is super simple using myBooster.com. Donors can choose to pledge a flat-rate (ex. $35) or a per-lap amount ($1/lap). This year, in order to prevent close contact and keep the flow of the event going during the Fun Run, each student will automatically be assessed 34 laps.
What does this mean? If a donor chooses to pledge $1/lap, the total donation will equal $34.
MyBooster.com allows your to quickly and easily share your student’s pledge page. Sharing is Caring. Every share and donation counts!
In cooperation with Double the Donation, Booster is making Corporate Matching Donations easy for everyone. After entering a pledge, simply search to see if an employer will match your pledged donation. Follow the additional information to have your donation matched. The matched gift goes directly to the PTA to help support our students and schools.
Students earn prizes at various levels of support. Just by logging on and registering they receive a reward and five entries into the Booster Sweepstakes.
In addition to the prizes, this year there is a change to win a Disney Family Vacation in the Booster Dream Vacation Sweepstakes by completing tasks in your student’s dashboard.
THIS YEAR’S GOAL
Our goal is to raise $35,000 for flexible seating, updates to the Kings Glen library, indoor and outdoor sensory areas at Kings Park, as well as for other school and PTA projects.
In addition to the monetary goal, we have a 65% student registration goal. This year the goal is a combined effort between both schools. If Kings Park & Kings Glen together can achieve a 65% registration rate, the ultimate reward will take place at the Kickball Game in May. Follow the registration progress here.
