JOHNS CREEK, Ga. – As an alternative to traditional school fundraisers that ask parents and students to sell gift wrap or candy, Wilson Creek Elementary in Johns Creek recently participated in a Boosterthon Fun Run, sponsored by the Wilson Creek School Foundation.

Principal Andrea Cushing announced the students raised $36,000 for the school by gathering pledges from friends and family.

Sponsors could pledge a per-lap amount or commit to a flat donation toward their student's Boosterthon Fun Run.

On the day of the event, the Boosterthon Fun Run team set up a "speedway" behind the school. Students ran around the speedway for about 30 minutes to upbeat, high-energy music while parents and teachers gathered around the track to encourage and cheer them on.

The Boosterthon Fun Run allows every student at the school to participate in a fundraiser that encourages healthy living and stresses character education traits such as friendship and good sportsmanship.

This year's event was sponsored by Atlanta Classic Cars/Mercedes-Benz, Pediatric Associates of North Atlanta, Champs Software and CarterBaldwin Executive Search.
