Since the Boosterthon Fun Run started in 2001, we’ve grown from serving one school of just a few hundred students to serving over 430,000 students during the 2011-2012 school year. So with all of the students we serve, what do they think of the Boosterthon Fun Run?
While we get tons of positive and enthusiastic comments from students at school, either loudly whispered in the halls, or yelled out car windows at carpool line, or our team members getting a “shout out” on our Facebook Page, we haven’t been able to sit down and ask our students what they think of our program.
But last week, one Boosterthon school in Georgia thought they would get their students’ perspective on the Boosterthon Fun Run for their newsletter, so they asked a handful of third graders what they thought about our program. After experiencing three of the nine days with our team on their campus, here are the students’ responses:
When Boosterthon comes in here I just start to get so excited because they are fun. They encourage us to know that we could do it if we try. I like Boosterthon because they really make me happy when they walk into the classroom.
Boosterthon people came to our school to encourage people to do their best and to play more than 60 minutes every day. So you can be super healthy.
Boosterthon makes me feel excited when they come in the classroom. I learned that our classroom is a team and that encouraging others matters.
Boosterthon makes me excited! They talk about encourage and play.
Boosterthon makes us excited about exercise, encourages us to do the best and help our classmates and school. They told us we need to play outside and exercise 60 minutes per day.
When the Boosterthon people come in I am excited because it is so much fun learning more about the fun run. I learned that if our whole school gets all 50 states the principals will dress up as wrestlers.
The Boosterthon fun run is so much fun. They talk about teamwork and it is fun to be with a team. They all make us feel so excited. It feels awesome to be in a team.
I like Boosterthon because you get to support people and help our school.
We are encouraged and humbled to receive comments like these from our students. It’s exciting to know that our mission to impact students through Fitness, Leadership, and Character is taking shape and influencing the next generation.
