The Kings Park/Kings Glen PTA’s Fun Run program will kick off with a pep rally on Monday, September 24 and will conclude with our Fun Run on Friday, October 5. During the 9-day program, family and friends from anywhere in the world can support our schools by donating pledges toward the number of laps your child will complete on the day of the Fun Run!
Every student included – regardless of financial participation, every student is invited to participate in the entire Fun Run program. Each student will receive a Fun Run t-shirt the day of the run and students also receive a gift at the pep rally and a FREE gift just by registering on funrun.com.
Every student will experience Boosterthon’s newest character theme, MIND SPARK MYSTERY LAB—a mystery theme that combines S.T.E.A.M. skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, & Math) with character building.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THIS FUNDRAISER?
For going on five years, the Fun Run has remained one of our PTA’s largest fundraising efforts. Funds raised over the past few years paid for five new drinking fountains/water bottle filling stations in the schools, the installation of multiple new ceiling projectors in the Kings Park classrooms, as well as field trips, technology and student planners. Your continued support will allow for more improvements in our schools.
The PTA continues to work to reduce our costs involved with the fundraiser, and to minimize disruption to instruction time for teachers and students. This year, the PTA gathered sponsors to help cover the cost of students’ customized t-shirts
Many volunteers are needed throughout the program to make it a success. If you are interested in helping with the Kings Park/Kings Glen Fun Run please contact Karen Barrie and/or Emily St. Onge or check out the opportunities and sign up here.
