WHAT IS THE BOOSTERTHON FUN RUN?
Boosterthon 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.
Boosterthon 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.
This year the Sports City crew is back and going World Wide. Students will journey around the globe to meet kids while learning about curiosity, practice, confidence, humility and endurance.
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 24, regardless of financial participation.

KICK-OFF DAY – SEPTEMBER 15
We are excited to kick off the event on Wednesday, September 15th. Students will view the Booster Kick-Off video and hear directly from our Booster teammates.
**Families with older students may remember the kick-off was a pep rally/assembly. This is being replaced with an in-classroom video.
DAILY CHARACTER LESSONS
Every day, students will view and learn character lessons from the crew of Sport City Worldwide during their daily news shows.
- Day 1 – Curiosity
- Day 2 – Practice
- Day 3 – Confidence
- Day 4 – Humility
- Day 5 – Endurance
- Day 6 – Wrap-Up/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 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, Boosterthon 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 prize and five entries into the Boosterthon Sweepstakes.
In addition to the prizes, this year there is a change to win a Disney Family Vacation in the Boosterthon Dream Vacation Sweepstakes by completing tasks in your student’s dashboard.
THIS YEAR’S GOAL
Our goal is to raise $32,000 for water bottle filling stations, classroom and technology enhancements, as well as for other school and PTA projects.
In addition to the monetary goal, we have a 65% student registration goal. Each school will have an Ultimate Reward if 65% of the student population registers on myBooster.com. More information on the Ultimate Reward is coming soon. Follow the registration progress here.

FUN RUN DAY – SEPTEMBER 24
Everything leads up to the Fun Run on September 24 during school hours. Details for the day are still being finalized to meet the ever changing safety precautions. The Kings Park portion of the day will take place in the morning and the Kings Glen portion of the day is in the afternoon.
Each student will receive a Fun Run T-shirt on Friday to wear during the run. These shirts are provided by our fantastic sponsors and the PTA.
Due to safety concerns, each student will automatically be assessed 34 laps to avoid touching for marking of completed laps on shirts.
Students will need to bring their own water bottles as the normal water stations will not be set up.
Unfortunately, the schools will not be permitting parents to view the FunRun this year.
