For nearly 20 years, funds raised from this event have been used to purchase much-needed items for the school such as playground equipment, iPads, projectors and screens, and have helped fund building projects such as mobility ramps and walkways.
The children have always been very much involved in this fundraiser and this year is no different! Students from preschool through 5th grade collect pledges from their friends and families in support of laps jogged. Each student runs in the Jog-a-Thon with their class, laps are tallied, and certificates are awarded. Students then collect the pledged donations they earned by running their laps. The students gain a sense of belonging within the school community by helping their own school and also learn about a healthy activity for life!
School parents and grandparents who volunteer to help with this event also have an opportunity to make new friends while cheering on their students.
