MARIETTA, Ga. -- Students at three Cobb County elementary schools recently took on an "EPIC" challenge when the Boosterthon Fun Run announced it was coming to town.
Boosterthon is a nine-day fitness and leadership program designed to help schools raise money for education and inspire students to develop character.
This year's theme, EPIC Adventure, will show 430,000 students nationwide how to Encourage, Play, Invite and Celebrate while working together.
"Every day, our team members see students across the country get excited about character and leadership," said Boosterthon founder and president Chris Carneal. "Schools exceed their financial goals, and we challenge students to live out the daily character action in school and at home."
East Side Elementary held its fun run on Sept.
