What is the Chatham Park Fun Run?

The Chatham Park Fun Run is a 12 day program and is this semester’s biggest fundraiser, taking place on 10/11/2022. Families will be getting donations for the minutes their student completes at the Chatham Park Fun Run. Funds raised from this event go toward new playground equipment and HSA activities! Our goal is to raise $20,000.

 

How can families register their student(s)?

First, families log in or sign up on MYBOOSTER.COM. Then, families can register their student as a participant on MYBOOSTER.COM by searching for the school by name. Students get a FREE prize just for being registered.

 

How can students get donations?

Families can help connect students to sponsors by sharing their fundraising link on Facebook, through email, or even a text. Sponsors can enter and pay for those donations online through students’ fundraising link!

Will my student really complete 30-35 minutes? How big is the track?

Yes, even kindergarteners! The Outdoor Fun Run track is about 1/16th of a mile, 1/4 the size of a normal high school track. The average student will complete 30-35 minutes and will have a goal to complete at least 30 minutes to help their school. The most any student will be counted for is 35 minutes.

 

Can students receive a prize for flat donations?

Yes! All flat donations count toward donations and are rounded by 30 (the average student will complete over 30 minutes. So, a $30 donation is the same as $1 per minute. A $60 donation is the same as $2 per minute, etc.

 

What if families don’t have the Internet?

If a student’s family does not have Internet access, families can use the Fundraising Guide to record all donations and send in the payment with the Fundraising Guide (if applicable). If students turn their donation and payment into their teacher, please make sure the student and teacher name are listed on the Fundraising Guide.

 

How do sponsors pay?

Sponsors will be prompted to pay online for all donations, even per minute donations. Sponsors will receive an email after the Chatham Park Fun Run with the amount of their payment based on how many minutes were completed. 

 

Can I make a donation if I don’t want to pay online?

YES! You can either turn in the payment for a donation listed on the Fundraising Guide, or you can request to turn off online payments for your account through our help desk on MYBOOSTER.COM.
