Q & A

Q: What if it rains or snows the day of the Boosterthon Fun Run event?

A: Whether there’s a monsoon or a snowstorm the Boosterthon Fun Run event is always ROCKING! If your school has a gym, it’s likely the day of the Boosterthon Fun Run event will be held there at the scheduled times. And now with Boosterthon’s Glow Run, rain, snow, and cold can’t hold back the fun. The Glow Run transforms your gym into a pulsating neon celebration complete with rope lights, disco lights, and black lights. You’ll be amazed at the rave remarks you’ll hear.

If your school doesn’t have a gym, the Fun Run event will be rescheduled for a later date. Always check with your school for more details.

Q: How far will my student run and for how long?

A: Since the track is about 1/16 a mile and most students run 30-35 laps, your student will walk, run, dance, and skip about two miles to help their school. (Water is always provided as well.)

Q: How do schools integrate Boosterthon into their schedule?

A: Great question! Over the past 15 years, we’ve listened to thousands of principals and educators to find out the best way to incorporate the Boosterthon without taking away from instructional time. We now customize all our programs to work around school schedules (even the craziest ones).
