Butlerville gets moving during Fun Run

Posted on: February 16, 2017

The music was pumpin', the students were runnin' and Harlan-Butlerville Primary School's recent Boosterthon Fun Run was a terrific success.

First and second graders collected pledges, ran laps and raised funds for their school's PTO during the event on Feb. 9. The Fun Run special day where students learn about fitness, leadership, and character all while having a great day with their friends. 

Students learned about this year’s character theme "Backyard Box Office," a movie theme all about making a difference by getting into character. From inventors to world-record holders, students learned step-by-step how to make a difference in their community from five real life kids dedicated to making people’s lives better.

The funds raised will go to support the Butlerville PTO's efforts to provide student enrichment opportunities throughout the year and is the sole large-scale fundraiser for the group.
