CUMMING, Ga. — Coal Mountain Elementary in Cumming will host the Boosterthon Fun Run event on Sept. 26.

The Boosterthon Fun Run is a nine-day program that raises funds for education, while inspiring students to live healthy, character-filled lives.

This school year, Alpharetta-based Boosterthon’s new character theme, Camp High Five, will challenge 700,000 students in 22 states to move from classmates to friends with a summer camp theme all about friendship.

“Our team motivates students across the country to get excited about fitness, leadership and character,” said Chris Carneal, Boosterthon founder and president. “We love watching schools exceed their financial goals with our program, but what really fires us up is developing leaders at the elementary-school level.”

Boosterthon has also launched two new resources that schools can use all year.

The Boost Fit Challenge is a 25-episode fitness DVD series designed to make fitness fun for students. In addition to fitness, students can continue developing their character with the Boosterthon content app that includes music, videos and books.
