Haynes Fun Run FAQs
- What is the Josiah Haynes Fun Run?
The Josiah Haynes Fun Run is an 11-day program and is this semester’s biggest fundraiser, taking place on 06/01/2023. Families get donations for the laps their student completes (or 30-35 minutes active time) at the Josiah Haynes Fun Run. Funds raised from this event will go towards renovating the aging basketball courts and enrichment activities! Our goal is to raise $10,000.
- Who is Boosterthon?
Boosterthon is the event organizer. They supply the website, the process for donations, the character-building program, and all the prizes and Fun Run materials. On the event day, they set up and coordinate everything. They create the Fun Run track, set up a blow-up tunnel for students to run through before the Fun Run begins, have tents lining the track, and have a D.J playing high-energy music.
Nixon, Noyes, and Loring Elementary Schools have all used Boosterthon and have held very successful Fun Runs.

Yes, even kindergarteners! The Outdoor Fun Run track is about 1/16th of a mile, 1/4 the size of a normal high school track. The student just needs to be active during the 30-35 minutes, to count towards completion of 30-35 laps.
