Now in its third year, Heatherwood Elementary School is accepting pledges for the Boosterthon Fun Run Fundraiser from September 13-23. Also known as the “Husky Hustle,” this yearly event is a popular way to raise money for classroom supplies and general support. This year, the PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) aims to raise $80,000.

This yearly event involves two main components: pledge-gathering by students that culminates in a fun run. Donations to the school hinge on the number of laps each student runs and the pledges they’ve gathered (based on donations per lap). Sponsors can register online (see link above).

Consider sponsoring a local student and supporting Heatherwood this year!
