On Feb. 16, approximately 990 students ran in the Boosterthon Fun Run at Scanlan Oaks Elementary.
The Boosterthon Fun Run was the culminating event of the nine-day Boosterthon program themed Backyard Box Office, where students learned from five real-life, inspiring students, whose world-changing ideas will prepare Scanlan Oaks Elementary students to implement their own ideas.
During the Boosterthon program, students at Scanlan Oaks Elementary learned the five steps to making a difference in their community. Five documentary-style videos taught students how to find a need, write a plan, rally a team, launch it now and grit it out through the stories of five kid difference-makers.
From the hard work of the students and the community, Scanlan Oaks Elementary is projected to profit more than $60,000 from the Boosterthon Fun Run. The funds raised will go toward 21st century furniture upgrades and a donation to the new school that is opening soon.
