Founder & CEO
Chris Carneal is the founder and president of Booster and its flagship school funding program, the Boosterthon Fun Run.
Chris was born and raised in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. He later attended Samford University in Birmingham, Ala., where he played baseball. During college he started his first company, All Sports Tutoring, a sports training program that also taught students valuable character and leadership lessons.
The son of a long-term educator, Chris sold All Sports Tutoring in 2002 and launched his newest endeavor, an innovative fitness fundraiser for schools called the Boosterthon Fun Run. He designed it as an alternative to the product sales that most elementary schools use to meet budget shortfalls. Today, Booster employs more than 450 team members and partners with over 1,600 schools to meet their yearly funding goals. The Boosterthon also offers one of the most innovative character education programs in the nation with more than one million students participating. In its mission to strengthen schools by increasing funds and inspiring students, Booster has raised schools more than $120 million to improve education since its inception.
Chris and his wife Lyndie live in Johns Creek, Ga., with their four children.
