Boosterthon is coming! We kick off this year’s fundraiser on Tuesday, October 3rd with an in-school pep rally. Your child will come home with a pledge book that day.

Boosterthon promotes character virtues that partner well with Homestead’s pillars of conduct and this year’s theme is Castle Quest. Your child will watch short daily videos in class which show these character virtues in action.

Boosterthon concludes with the Fun Run on Friday, October 13. The fun run will be held in the field behind the school, weather permitting. Please mark your calendars to come out and cheer on your Homestead runner!

K - 2nd grade: 9:45 - 11am
3rd - 5th grade: 1:45 - 3pm

A few volunteer spots still remain. Sign-up at…/10c094baaa82ca3f85-boosterthon.

Thanks for all of your support to make our only fundraising event of the year a success!

Boosterthon Fun Facts Basics



The event kicked off with a 30-minute school-wide Pep Rally and concludes with the Boosterthon Fun Run event.

Students gather pledges towards the number of laps they will run at the Boosterthon Fun Run. Students will run between 30-35 laps. 35 is the lap max.

Every student participates in the Fun Run, regardless of pledges raised, and receives a daily character sticker and access to Boosterthon character resources.

Pledges are entered at FUNRUN.COM. Each student has his/her own safe and secure Boosterthon Fun Run webpage to log in pledges and watch character videos. Sponsors will also have the ability to pay their pledges online.

The Boosterthon Fun Run team spends 300 hours organizing the event, freeing up our teachers and administrators to focus on education!


Thanks all your support!
