Each grade at Silver Springs Elementary School in Northville participated in a fun run Friday to raise money for the school.
The students raised approximately $30,000 in pledges, which will be used to buy 50 iPads.
The event was organized by the school's PTA and Dads' Club in partnership with Boosterthon.
Each grade ran at a different time throughout the day, and for each lap a student ran, a teacher marked a tally on the back of their t-shirt. Boosterthon then takes down the number of laps to collect the per-lap pledges.
Students ran around for 30-45 minutes to loud music, and some laps had a theme such as "skipping" or "dancing." Students also took a victory lap with their parents after they finished.
"It was fabulous," said Silver Springs Principal Melissa Hunt. "It was a great way to bring the community together and it was extremely successful.
