About this fundraiser:
The Jog-a-Thon is a school-wide fundraiser that raises funds for our school while promoting health and fitness for the students. The money raised by the Jog-a-Thon is used to fund and support VPO-sponsored school programs, such as Accelerated Reader, Class Field Trips, 5th Grade Celebrations, Read and Lead, Family Nights such as Pleasant Movement, and many other school and classroom needs.
HOW THE JOG-A-THON WORKS
STUDENTS FIND SPONSORS: The 2023 Jog-A-Thon kicks off on April 17th! Starting this day until the final day of collections (May 19th), students are encouraged to find sponsors that want to support them by either pledging a flat amount donation or by pledging a per lap donation.
WALK/JOG/RUN: Students will walk/jog/run on the day of the event (Thu, May 11th) on the designated track for as many laps as they can. Each lap is about a tenth of a mile. Each class will participate in the jog-a-thon during specialist time. The schedule will be posted online for parents that want to volunteer or just to come cheer on the students. Keep an eye out for more information!
There are many individual and class prizes; plus, if we hit at least $8,000 in donations we will have a COLOR RUN on Thu, Jun 8th!
Note: that we will take donations up until May 19th.
