Fun, Family, Fitness, and FUNDRAISING!
St. Mary’s Jogathon is one of our school’s biggest fundraisers and your support is vital. This year we have chosen a Pokemon Go theme to help inspire our kids to stretch, lace up, and go the distance for our school and community! Our goal is $75 per student with proceeds going towards our Preschool Sun Shade structure.
Families, friends and neighbors pledge a flat rate (such as a $25 mom pledge, $50 grandparents, $10 neighbor) to support our preschoolers as they run, jog, walk, or skip laps around the school field exercising, listening to music, and having fun! This will be followed by a free lunch and treats. Families are invited to cheer on the sidelines or run with the kids!
DONATIONS ARE FULLY TAX DEDUCTIBLE! St. Mary’s is a 501(c) non-profit organization. Tax Identification #27-3959788

How do we raise money?
Before the Jogathon, each preschooler obtains donations. We are asking our preschool families to get their families, friends, neighbors, and co-workers to sponsor them with a flat amount (such as a $25 mom pledge, $50 grandparents, $10 neighbor). Last year’s Jogathon was successful in raising funds for new flooring — come take a look! This year’s funds will go towards our new Sun Shade structure.
Complete your pledge sheet and return to the Office by Monday, November 7th.
