Gates Fun Run

Gates Fun Run 2019

We are excited for this year's Gates Fun Run! Hosted by Boosterthon, the Gates Fun Run begins with a Pep Rally on Thursday, 10/10/19 and ends with a run on Tuesday, 10/22/19. 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.

Our Boosterthon program includes a character program called MINDSPARK Wild West, a S.T.E.A.M.-infused theme about solving problems with character. Learn more here in this sneak peak: https://boosterthon.com/blog/our-new-character-theme-ismindspark-wild-west/

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 new logo (see above) 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 $30,000 for Gates School. We need YOUR help to make the Gates Fun Run a success.

If you have any questions please check out the Frequently Asked Questions (English), Frequently Asked Questions (Russian) or contact Soula Hatziliades Stratakias and Molly Wald. We look forward to a fantastic program!
