For Cougar Day 2022, we will have a Fun Run for all students in PK-5th grade and a Color Run for all students in 6th-12th grade.
Our annual Fall fundraiser is a tradition at Goodpasture that has lasted nearly 50 years. What is Cougar Day 2022?FUN RUN and COLOR RUN
- Goodpasture will have a Cougar Day Fun Run and Color Run for our students. This will take place during the school day on Friday, September 16th.WHO GETS TO PARTICIPATE?
All students will be allowed to participate.HOW DOES THIS RAISE MONEY FOR OUR SCHOOL?
Money is raised for GCS when donors pledge to donate money to students per the lap they complete in the Fun Run or Color Run. Goodpasture is working with a company to help us track our donations online. We are encouraging EACH FAMILY
to register their family online at www.mybooster.com
. Once your family account has been created, you can share it with your family and friends through social media, text messages, or email. The goal is to have someone sponsor your student per lap as they participate in the Fun Run or Color Run. We are setting our goal at 35 laps per student. If someone supports your student at $1 per lap, they will donate $35. The more sponsors your student has, the more money we will raise for our school. Donors can also give a flat donation amount. ARE THERE PRIZES?
YES! There are specific prizes for each run. The prizes are correlated to the dollars per lap each student raised on their family digital account. Our GCS staff will check reports daily and distribute prizes to students. HOW MANY LAPS WILL MY STUDENT WALK/RUN?
There will be a course set up, and the distance of the laps will be adjusted for the age of the students and the type of run - fun run or color run. The students will average 35 laps per course per the allotted time of their event. HOW CAN OUR GOODPASTURE FAMILIES HELP?
