Boosterthon Fun Run raises funds for Desert Willow Elementary


CAVE CREEK – On Sept. 16, more than 614 students ran in the Boosterthon Fun Run at Desert Willow Elementary. The Boosterthon Fun Run was the culminating event of the 9-day Boosterthon program themed "Backyard Box Office," where students learned from five real-life, inspiring students, whose world-changing ideas will help prepare Desert Willow Elementary students to implement their own ideas.  

During the Boosterthon program, students at Desert Willow Elementary learned the five steps to making a difference in their community. Five documentary-style videos taught students how to find a need, write a plan, rally a team, launch it now and grit it out through the stories of five kid difference-makers.  

From the hard work of the students and the community, Desert Willow Elementary is projected to profit more than $22,000 from the Boosterthon Fun Run. These funds raised will go toward purchasing new Chromebooks for the students.
