Boosterthon raises funds for Mauldin Elementary, teaches students to be leaders
Mauldin Elementary School in Simpsonville hosted the Boosterthon Fun Run event on March 28. The Boosterthon Fun Run is a 9-day fitness and leadership program designed to help schools raise needed funds for education while inspiring students to live character-filled lives.
Boosterthon’s new character theme, Epic Adventure, will show 600,000 students this school year how to work together in teams through the adventure actions Encourage, Play, Invite and Celebrate.
But the Boosterthon Fun Run is more than a fundraiser. The program offers an extensive character curriculum that combines live character presentations, a children’s book, upbeat music, and a read-along mini-movie that includes live action and animation.
Mauldin Elementary PTA Co-President Becky Nobarak said, “The students had a blast! They loved the messages in the classroom and were talking about the Boosterthon Fun Run for days. They all wanted to know if we were doing it again next year.”
Boosterthon has a proven track record of helping schools boost funding by more than 75 percent over other traditional methods and executes all aspects of the program from start to finish, taking the workload off parent organizations.
Therefore, Mauldin students were not the only ones who enjoyed hosting the Boosterthon Fun Run. “Teachers loved it as well,” said Nobarak. “We had several teachers say it was the best fundraiser they had ever been a part of.”
Founded in 2001 at a time when the fundraising landscape relied primarily on product and catalog sales, Boosterthon set out to completely redefine the industry. Today, students are not selling products door-to-door; instead they benefit from a fun, interactive program that impacts schools and develops leaders.
