Fun Run FAQ -
1. What is the Fun Run?
The Fun Run is a 9-Day program and is this semester's biggest fundraiser, taking place on November 8. Families will be getting pledges for the laps their student runs at the Fun Run. Funds raised from this event will help fund academic materials to help support Onahan teachers and students.
2. Will my student really run 30 laps? How big is the track? How long will my student be outside?
Yes, even Pre-kindergartners! The Fun Run track is about 1/16th of a mile, 1/4 the size of Onahan's outdoor track. The average student will run 30-35 laps and no one will run more than 35 laps. Boosterthon will set up 2 tracks on the Onahan Field to accommodate our amazing students. Students will be outside about 20-30 minutes, dress students warm, as you would for outdoor recess. Parents, please note, this is a fun event no one will be pushed to run more than they can/want. The Boosterthon team will have the kids running/walking/dancing/hopping and having a ball!
3. Can parents/family come to see the Fun Run?
Yes, we encourage this. This is a high energy, fun event. The Boosterthon team will have music and speakers set up and will be announcing each classroom as they come out to enjoy the Fun Run. Come cheer on all of our runners.
4. What is the schedule for the Fun Run?
8:30AM - Track 1: PreK and Kindergarten Track 2: 1st Grade
9:30AM - Track 1: 5th-6th Grade Track 2: 7th-8th Grade
