This year MPES did another Boosterthon Fun Run. The kids are visited by crazy guys with names like Minnesota Mark for two weeks to get them pumped up to raise money for the school.
They have had pep ralleys and seen the guys get pies in their faces, and came home begging for three dollars a lap each for their class. Yesterday was the big day.
Each one of my boys ran the full 35 laps plus some extra ones. Equaling two miles per buddy. The fun run guys played great songs and danced around while the kids ran.
They even did the Cupid Shuffle, and ran around giving parents and kids high fives. I have never had so much fun at a fundraiser for school. Much better than selling wrapping paper!
Here are the first graders and kindergarteners getting a thumbs up for finishing their laps yesterday.
