Our goal for this year's Move-a-Thon is to raise $290 per student for a total of $65,000. The more money donated, the more raffle prizes get unlocked. Make sure to find your students pledge page at

100% of the proceeds go to the Brookside Parents Club to fund multiple projects throughout the year including The Garden, Poetry, Children 4 Change, Bear Bash & More.

What does my donation fund?

Raffle Prizes

Throughout the fundraiser students will have multiple opportunties to celebrate their hard work. As a class, students can win extra recesses or ice cream parties. And multiple schoolwide raffle drawings will give all students a chance to win prizes like movie passes and snack baskets. There will even be a chance to "pie" a teacher if the kids hit there $65,000 goal.

What happens at the Move-a-Thon?

On March 22, 2024, the students will gather on the upper field for the Move-a-Thon finale! The field will be converted into a celebration track with bubbles, music and the Brookside Bear to lead them as they run, walk, skip, dance and demonstrate the determination and heart of a true Brookside Bear!
