Field PTA Jogathon 2017
Wednesday May 24, 2017
How it works
Each student will have 15 minutes to complete as many laps as they can around the track that will be set up in the dirt field.
While the students are running and walking, teachers will be tallying the laps. Parents, family, and friends are invited to cheer the students on and even run a lap or two if they desire. It’s a fun day for the entire school. This year, our goal is $10,000.
How does a student collect pledges?
It’s simple. Ask family and friends to support your effort to run as many laps as you can. Each student will receive an envelope with a pledge form. Simply have your sponsors fill in a line on the form and then collect the donation amount. We will NOT be taking per lap pledges, only flat rate pledges.
We are using the web based fundraising system 99pledges to collect pledges from family and friends who aren’t local or prefer to use a debit or credit card. Each student has their own fundraising page. To find your page, go to 99pledges.com/fund/field and search for your student’s name. Feel free to email your private page with pledge requests to your family and friends. Recipients of the email will receive a link to make secure pledges to the student.
All pledges are due either online or returned in the envelope provided on TUESDAY May 23, 2017
Goal for each student
Each student is asked to obtain a minimum of $40.00 in total pledges which will help us reach our school’s goal of $10,000!
Are donations tax deductible?
YES! Donations are 100% tax deductible.
There are no minimum pledge amounts. Pledge as much or as little as you like.
Can I volunteer?

How does my business become a sponsor?
We still have several spots available on the back of shirts for $250 each. They are approximately 3x3 in size and will represent your company’s name and logo. The shirts will be given to each student and teacher participating in the Jogathon to be worn on event day. In addition, your business will be highlighted on our Jogathon website. The spots will be given out on a first come first served basis, so don’t miss your chance!

What should my child wear on day of event?
Each student will be given one Jog-a-thon shirt the day before the event. Please have your student wear this and athletic wear on event day. Please remember to put sunscreen on your student and send a water bottle with your student to school that day.
