Helping Students Stay Fit
Littleton, Colorado school Leawood Elementary is focused on student health and wellness, so when they asked if we'd sponsor their October 9 Fall Fun Run/Walk, we were thrilled to do so! The event kicked off a week before the run with a fun, healthy and character-building program: the 9-day Boosterthon which helped raise money for the school. Then on Oct. 9, students challenged themselves to run up to 35 laps around the Fun Run track while fellow students, teachers and parents cheered them on.

All students are able to participate in the event regardless of whether they're able to donate or raise pledges. The event was put on by the Leawood Parent-Teacher-Student Association and raised more than $21,000 for the school.
