What is a Jog-a-thon? The Jog-A-Thon is where families, friends and neighbors pledge money to support the students as they jog or walk in the Jog-A-Thon, which takes place during your child’s regular school day. Brownsville students run (or jog, walk, skip, etc.) laps around the school running track 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? Before the day of the Jog-A-Thon, 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 $15,000. All of the profits (money raised less prizes for students) will be earmarked the sound system this year (2016).


Can I get involved? ABSOLUTELY! There are many opportunities to help out with this event before, during, and after! Please email our coordinators at jogathon@brownsvilleptsa.org

What do I do next? Please collect pledges and donations on your pledge form. Ask family, relatives, friends, co-workers, employers, etc. for support. DON’T FORGET TO SIGN AND TURN IN YOUR PLEDGE FORM (and flat donation funds) by March 25th.

PRIZES! PRIZES! PRIZES!  After the Jog-A-Thon, students will get their pledge sheet back with the total due (laps x donation per lap).  These forms with payment are due back to the school no later than April 11th!  Prizes will be verified and be ready to go home around April 18th.  A prize sheet will accompany the donation sheet and be sent home in early March.
