SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. -- Students at Heards Ferry Elementary School recently completed a Boosterthon Fun Run to raise money for the school.

The fun run was preceded by a nine day fitness, leadership and character-building experience. All of the students had a blast learning about ways to be healthy.

At the fun run, students were encouraged to receive pledges from their family and friends for every lap they completed.

The Boosterthon Fun Run raised more than $40,000 for Heards Ferry Elementary.

The Atlanta-based Boosterthon Fun Run has been providing schools with fun, active alternatives to sales-driven fundraisers since 2001.
