Ballentine Firefly Fun Run

Parents! This year’s main fundraiser is the Ballentine Firefly Fun Run! It’s a 9-day program that kicks off with a Pep Rally on Tuesday, August 23rd. Then families will have time to get pledges for every lap your student runs (30-35 laps), and we’ll celebrate at the Fun Run on Thursday, September 1st. With our big goal to raise funds for student and family engagement, and playground and instructional equipment we asked the Fun Run experts at Boosterthon to power our Fun Run and make it more profitable, easier, and fun. So please help our school by reaching out to sponsors. Also, all families are invited to come out and cheer on your student at the Fun Run! Thank you for your support! You can start helping Ballentine right now by registering your student at funrun.com using our unique school code: 629-182. Go Fireflies!
