Most importantly, this is the only event where the kids take the lead in raising money for their school. Please visit the Jog-a-thon page to learn more about how your child can participate and qualify for some cool prizes!

T-Shirts are now available! Volunteers will be selling t-shirts before and after school next week. (Check calendar for details.) You can also order your 2017 Jog-a-Thon T-Shirt online and have it delivered to your child’s classroom.
