Cougar Day

    • __________

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? 
Click on the link and register with Boosterthon at www.mybooster.com. Create ONE ACCOUNT for your family and list each student in your family in your account. Share your digital account with your friends and family and ask for their support as your child participates in a Cougar Day Run to raise money for Goodpasture. Encourage your friends and family to make a flat donation or a pledge per lap. 

HOW LONG DOES THE COUGAR DAY FUNDRAISER EVENT LAST?
The online registration starts today and will end on Thursday, September 15th, at midnight. All donations and pledges must be visible on your digital account by the ending date and time.

WHAT IF I HAVE A DONOR THAT WANTS TO GIVE CASH OR A CHECK? Please put the cash or check in an envelope, label the envelope with the first name and last name of your student(s), and take it to any school office. Your family must create an online account with www.mybooster.com for us to receive a cash or check donation for this event. All cash and check donations will be split between students on your account unless you notify us to distribute them differently.

WHAT DOES MY CHILD NEED TO WEAR TO SCHOOL ON THE DAY OF THE FUN RUN AND COLOR RUN?
More information will be communicated the week of September 12th.

HOW DO I REGISTER?
Please visit www.mybooster.com and follow the prompts!

EXTRA BONUS!
 - For every $100 a family raises, the family will have one entry into the HALF TUITION drawing that will take place on Friday, September 16th, at halftime of the varsity football game. For example, if your FAMILY raises $700, your family will have 7 entries in the HALF tuition draw. 

- You do not have to be present at this drawing to win.  

- Will my family be placed in the drawing if I do not raise money in the Fun Run or Color Run online fundraising program? No. Your family name will only be placed in the drawing for every $100 you raise for our fundraiser through our online event.


WHAT IS OUR SCHOOL GOAL?
Our Fun Run and Color Run School goal is to raise $50,000. We will reach our school goal if EACH FAMILY gets $75 pledged/donated.

WHAT ARE WE RAISING MONEY FOR DURING THIS FUNDRAISER?
Our fall fundraising list includes enhancing security on campus, money for the learning lab, tending to the Preschool/Great Beginnings playground, and replacing weight room equipment. 

IS THERE A CLASS COMPETITION?

PK-5TH GRADE - Our Fun Run students will compete against each other to see which classroom can raise the most money. The class that wins will be invited to stand on the field with their teacher for the two half-tuition drawings on Friday, September 16th, at halftime of the varsity football game.

6TH - 8TH GRADE - Our middle school students will be in a grade competition within the middle school. The class with the highest percentage of participants that bring in donations will receive a doughnut breakfast.

9TH - 12TH GRADE - Our high school students will be in a grade competition within the high school. The class with the highest percentage of participants will receive a pizza lunch.

SCHOOL-WIDE - If 80% of our families create an account at www.MyBooster.com and receive donations for our Fun Run/Color Run, then we will close school on Friday, November 18th, for an extra day of Thanksgiving Break.
