Turkey Trot Jog-a-Thon!

The Adams PTCO Turkey Trot Jog-A-Thon

What is the Jog-A-Thon?
This is one of our schools largest fundraisers where families, friends, neighbors and co-workers pledge money to support the students as the jog or walk in the Jog-A-Thon.  One hundred percent of the proceeds raised go directly to programs for Adams students.  The Turkey Trot takes place during your child's regular school day.  Adams students run (or jog, walk, skip, etc...) laps around the school field during a 20 minute time period.  All students will participate as part of their regular physical fitness program, unless there is a medical reason why the student should not participate.
 
How do we raise money?
As soon as the students receive the packet, each student obtains pledges and donations in support of his/her Jog-A-Thon efforts.  Sponsors may sign up to pledge a flat dollar amount and/or a per lap donation.  Our goal is to raise at least $3,000.  All of the money raised will go directly to PTCO sponsored enrichment programs that supplement our students' school experiences.
 
Can I get involved?
 ABSOLUTELY!  There are many opportunities to help make this event successful!  Before, during, and after!  To get involved, please see Mrs. Lani or email her at adamsptco@gmail.com
 
What do I do next?
Get sponsors!  Please collect pledges and donations on your Pledge Form included in the packet sent home with your child.  Ask family, relative, friends, co-workers, employers, etc.. for support.  DON'T FORGET TO SIGN AND TURN IN YOUR PLEDGE FORM by ___________. This form is very important as it also serves as permission for your child to participate.  No time to ask for pledges?  You can donate instead!
