Boosterthon Fun Run

Western Union Elementary's first ever Boosterthon Fun Run is just around the corner on February 11!

This fundraiser, sponsored by WUES PTO, to benefit the school is so much more than just a run. The fundraiser is kicked off with a pep rally on February 2.  Every student receives a custom Western Union/Boosterthon team jersey sponsored in part by Forest Lake Dental.

The Boosterthon team will spend time at the school leading students in character building lessons that culminated with the fun run experience.

This year's theme is Rock'n Town, an anti-bullying campaign that promotes building friendships by respecting others, shouting out strengths, showing sportsmanship, not bullying, and sticking together.

Students and teachers will join in daily team huddles where they will learn about each character lesson and participate in group fitness activities.  Students are asked to get pledges from family, friends, and neighbors.

Pledges could be per lap or flat donations and the school set a goal of $5,000 and will be used for a walking track around the playground.

Mark you calendars for the following important Boosterthon dates:

February 2 - Boosterthon Pep Rally
