Join the Byrne Fun Run fund-raiser now!

Our REACH Fun Run kicked off Sept. 22 with an exciting Pep Rally, and we are thrilled about this year’s program! We’ve asked the Fun Run experts at Boosterthon to power our Fun Run program (which will last about two weeks), making our fundraising simpler, more fun and have more impact. Our Fun Run includes EVERY student in a fun, fitness event while helping our school raise much-needed funds.

This year, our entire school is raising funds for Stem Lab/Maker Space materials & Active Playground Equipment. Our goal is to raise $10,000, and we need YOUR help!
