WHAT IS THE BOOSTER FUN RUN?
Booster is back this year with the always exciting in-person Fun Run. Students will run around a track for a set amount of time. They will be getting exercise while raising money for their schools.
Booster Fun Run is the largest fundraiser the KPKG PTA does each year to raise funds to support our students and schools. By collecting pledges from family and friends across the world, you are supporting all the Kings Park/Kings Glen community.
Our school goal is to raise $35,000 for whiteboard skins, more flexible seating, picnic tables at Kings Park, library murals at Kings Glen, as well as for other school and PTA projects.
Students can win prizes for collecting pledges. Prizes will be delivered daily to their classrooms.
All students will participate in the Fun Run event on September 22, regardless of financial participation.

KICK-OFF DAY – SEPTEMBER 13
We are excited to kick off the event on Wednesday, September 13th. Students will view the Booster Kick-Off video and hear directly from our Booster teammates.
**Families with older students may remember the kick-off was a pep rally/assembly. This is being replaced with an in-classroom video.
Every day, students will view and learn character lessons during their daily news shows.
- Team Day 1 – Find a Need
- Team Day 2 – Write a Plan
- Team Day 3 – Rally a Team
- Team Day 4 – Launch it Now
- Team Day 5 – Grit it Out
- Team Day 6 – Resolution
Each night of the event we will have a nightly challenge plus a weekend challenge where students can win a bonus prize. Click here to see the nightly challenges (including winners!).
Can we secure a pledge from all 50 states?
PLEDGING & SHARING
Pledging is super simple using myBooster.com. Donors can choose to pledge a flat-rate (ex. $35) or a per-lap amount ($1/lap). This year, in order to prevent close contact and keep the flow of the event going during the Fun Run, each student will automatically be assessed 34 laps.
What does this mean? If a donor chooses to pledge $1/lap, the total donation will equal $34.
MyBooster.com allows you to quickly and easily share your student’s pledge page. Sharing is Caring. Every share and donation counts!
In cooperation with Double the Donation, Booster is making Corporate Matching Donations easy for everyone. After entering a pledge, simply search to see if an employer will match your pledged donation. Follow the additional information to have your donation matched. The matched gift goes directly to the PTA to help support our students and schools.
Students earn prizes at various levels of support. Just by logging on and registering they receive a reward and five entries into the Booster Sweepstakes.
In addition to the prizes, this year there is a change to win a Disney Family Vacation in the Booster Dream Vacation Sweepstakes by completing tasks in your student’s dashboard.

THIS YEAR’S GOAL
Our goal is to raise $35,000 for whiteboard skins, more flexible seating, picnic tables at Kings Park, library murals at Kings Glen, as well as for other school and PTA projects.
In addition to the monetary goal, we have a 65% student registration goal. This year the goal is a combined effort between both schools. If Kings Park & Kings Glen together can achieve a 65% registration rate, there will be an ultimate reward!
At KINGS GLEN, students will earn student free seating in the cafeteria for meeting 65% (To include many staff members joining in for lunch) The first one will happen as soon as 65% registration is met! Additionally, every 5% earned above 65% will come with an additional student free seating day in the cafeteria!
At KINGS PARK, a grade level kickball game for each grade level will be planned for meeting 65% registration!
FUN RUN DAY – SEPTEMBER 22
Everything leads up to the Fun Run on September 22 during school hours. The Kings Park portion of the day will take place in the morning and the Kings Glen portion of the day is in the afternoon.
Each student will receive a Fun Run T-shirt on Friday to wear during the run. These shirts are provided by our fantastic sponsors and the PTA.
