MMA BOOSTERTHON FUN RUN
MMA is hosting a Fun Run (similar to the old Jump Rope for Hearts), meaning there is no selling or delivering products. Once our program begins next week on January 23rd, family and friends anywhere in the world can support our school by giving pledges toward the number of laps your students will run on the day of the Fun Run: February 1st.
Our Fun Run will be powered by the Boosterthon Fun Run, a fun organization that organizes Fun Runs all over the country. This year 2,900 schools like ours will run their fun run through Boosterthon. We’re excited for their expertise and making this EASY on everyone involved—including you!
Our Fun Run also comes with a world-class character theme. This year’s theme is MINDSPARK MYSTERY LAB, combining S.T.E.A.M skills (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) with character-building – which is a beautiful follow-up to STEM week. While they’re teaming up with the MindSpark Kids to solve mysteries, our students will learn five 21st-century character traits that will help strengthen themselves and our world. Through this year’s Fun Run, our school goal is to raise $8,000 for field experiences, such as Redwoods and all other field trips.
We need YOUR help! Teachers will give you more information next week. Brainstorm with your student to think of people to contact and promote this fundraiser. Then, help them register their pledges online when given the logins.
We can do this!
