Boosterthon Fun Run

We kicked off our major fundraiser for the semester with the Boosterthon Pep Rally. Every child at Pleasant Union gets to be a part of the Boosterthon character campaign! Our students will be running in the Boosterthon Fun Run event this Friday and next Friday!!

Your student came home with a Pledge Book that has information about the Boosterthon fundraiser. Parents can log pledges on funrun.com to help our school. Use your student’s class‚Äôs registration code to log on to funrun.com and register pledges or flat donations. We only have a few days this week and next to get pledges to help our school!

We need your help!! Our goal is to raise money for campus enhancements! Any amount will support our school! Can you help your student to connect to 10 sponsors for the Boosterthon Fun Run? Log on to funrun.com tonight and watch the Boosterthon videos to learn more.

Last, We need help passing out water to the kids this Friday while they run, so if you’re available please go to the PTA Sign Up Genius.

Thanks for your support of our school!
