Boosterthon-1st Grade

The only big fundraiser we do at our elementary school is the Boosterthon. Although it is a fundraiser, it also emphasizes fitness, education and character. The kids get pledges for how many laps they can run in a certain amount of time. The Boosterthon Boys start the event with a pep rally and visit every class every day for the week leading up to the fun run. These guys are HIGH ENERGY.
Unfortunately, since we are in the middle of a monsoon, we had to do our fun run in the gym.

Run Forrest!

Why don't I look this cute when I am sweaty, glistening, glowing?

The maximum number of laps is 35. She made it!

Cheering for the boys while they were running.

And a popsicle to top it off makes it just about perfect!
But this was the highlight of my day:

Still makes me giggle every time I watch it!
