Gates Fun Run 2017

We are kicking off the year with a brand new fundraiser called the Gates Fun Run. You can read all about it in the Acton Beacon article Acton’s Gates School students to run for fun and fundsHaving this event means there will be no auction this year. Hosted by Boosterthon, the Gates Fun Run begins with a Pep Rally on Wednesday, 10/11/17 and ends with a run on Friday, 10/20/17.  Family and friends anywhere in the world can support our school by giving pledges toward the number of laps (30-35) your students will run, walk, skip, or even dance on the day of the Gates Fun Run. 

Students will also learn about Focus, Self Awareness, Respect, Trustworthiness, Creativity, and how to be a Life-Learner through Castle Quest—an English castle theme all about being brave and living with character. On their quest to regain Bravemore Castle, students will learn the six virtues of becoming a true hero from a cast of colorful characters. 

On the day of the Gates Fun Run every child will have his/her customized T-shirt to wear. The front of the shirt will have the Gates School logo and there will be a sticker on the back that gets marked each time your child completes a lap. As our biggest fundraiser of the year, we are aiming to raise $20,000 for Gates School. We need YOUR help to make the Gates Fun Run a success.
