CMDS Kicks Off 2016 Boosterthon Fun Run

The CMDS Boosterthon Fun Run is on!

We are very excited about this year’s program, which is the biggest annual fundraiser for the CMDS Parent Association.

We kicked off the program this week with a fun pep rally, and in the days leading up to the Thursday, April 7, event, our kids will have lessons centered on Big World Recess, a global fitness theme all about playing with more character.

The CMDS Parent Association sponsors the Boosterthon Fun Run. From the funds raised, the PA will give a large gift back to CMDS. This year, that gift will help fund a new Engineering Lab as well as renovations to the Early Childhood and Grade School art rooms. We’re aiming to raise $38,000 through the 2016 Boosterthon Fun Run!

Here’s how you can support CMDS:

Register your student. To log pledges, please register your child on, using our school’s registration code: 378-532 (2K-4th grade) OR 898-289 (5th-6th). Students receive a free gift just by having their parent or guardian register them on the website.

Reach out to sponsors. You can use social media in the pledging process and even create custom videos – all of this is on

Ask your child about the Big World Recess Character Play of the Day. And watch the fun videos with your child on the website.

Come to the Fun Run on Thursday, April 7. All students are invited to participate, regardless of financial participation, and we would love for you to come out and cheer. Grade school students will run 30-35 laps, and parents can donate per lap or contribute a flat donation. Please use flat donations for 2K-SK as we will not mark laps for our EC students.

Here’s a rundown of the race day schedule for those who are able to attend:

2K Trike-A-Thon: 8:30 a.m. in the CMDS courtyard (8:30 to 8:45: Mrs. Moore’s class; 8:45 to 9: Mrs. Groshart’s class; 9 to 9:15: Mrs. Groves’ class; 9:15 to 9:30: Ms. Weir’s class)
