"But what happens to the Fun Run in the case of rain, snow, or cold?"
We hear that question quite a bit. That's why we developed one of the most exciting fundraising programs ever: the Boosterthon Glow Run. The Glow Run transforms your gym into a glowing neon celebration complete with rope lights, disco lights, and black lights. It’s perfect for your main Fun Run event or backup plan.
In fact, some of our school partners love the Glow Run so much they intentionally choose it over the traditional outdoor Fun Run—regardless of weather.
Just ask Debra Hendrix, Principal of Broadmoore Elementary in Moore, OK.
“We chose a Glow Run instead of the traditional Fun Run because we wanted something a little different than the previous year. [They did the traditional Fun Run the year before.] The Glow Run is definitely the way to go! It added a whole new level of excitement to the Fun Run by providing such an energizing atmosphere.”
Here are 6 reasons why you should pick the Boosterthon Glow Run as your next school fundraiser:
1. Remarkable experience
Our glow lights deliver a neon experience that students will talk about for the rest of the year. Parents are still invited to cheer, make signs, and dance. You’ll be amazed at the rave remarks you’ll hear on run day!
Listen to what Debra had to say about her school’s Glow Run experience:
“Everyone who attended the Glow Run left not only energized but also inspired. The Boosterthon staff were amazing! They led by example and did a fabulous job with organization, motivation, and communication.”
2. Works in any weather
Since the Glow Run takes place indoors, rain, snow, and cold can’t hold back the fun—it rocks in any weather.
3. More cheering
For the Glow Run, we cut the track size and soundtrack in half (so the track is about 1/32 of a mile). Half the students run while the other half cheers them on in the “bullpen.” So that means extra cheering!
4. Less class travel
We know some schools are on a tight schedule. Since the Glow Run takes place in the gym (instead of outside on a field) it means less class travel and less overall time.
5. Same safety and excellence standards
We provide the same standard of excellence, safety, and celebration with both outdoor and indoor events.
6. Option to upgrade to Glow Run+
Schools now have the ability to upgrade their experience through our Glow Run+ option! With Glow Run+, schools pay a little extra to add glow bracelets and necklaces to supercharge the experience.
When asked what she would say to a school who's thinking about running a Glow Run program, Debra had this to say:
“As an administrator, we’re always striving to find fundraising opportunities that will raise the most funds without adding too much extra work on the teachers. Boosterthon is the perfect solution to that. We were able to rely on the Boosterthon staff to do an incredible job supplying the teachers with the support they needed without being overwhelmed.
The daily motivational lessons were developmentally appropriate for our students and helped them get excited about making a positive difference in our community. The overall experience was very positive, and we look forward to working closely together with Boosterthon again next year.”
Debra isn’t alone. Hundreds of schools are choosing the Boosterthon Glow Run as their fundraiser of choice. Ready to see if our Glow Run is right for your school?
