Only 3 Days Left To Get Your Pledges In!

We are preparing for our Pride Prowl Fun Run, powered by the Boosterthon! Instead of selling items, we are asking families to gather pledges to help your school, while students experience a world-class character program and participate in the Pride Prowl. Most students will complete 30-35 laps.

This year’s Boosterthon character theme is Backyard Box Office, a movie theme all about making a difference by getting into character. This amazing new theme will take students on a step-by-step journey of how to make a difference in their world.

We have only met 34% of our goal and we need your help to reach it. These funds will help your PTA support programs and teacher grants for our school year. Please sign up and make your pledge at funrun.com today.
