O'HARA'S 2022 JOG-A-THON
We are excited about launching our 2022 Jog-A-Thon and bringing this fun event back to our community! After last year's adapted event due to COVID protocols, we were able to evaluate the event as a whole and see how best to move forward this year and return to a bit of normalcy.
This year our Jog-A-Thon will be held on two days:
- Middle School Jog-A-Thon 1:30 - 2:30pm on Thursday, April 28
- Middle School Color Blast 2:45-3:00pm on Thursday, April 28
- Preschool-5th grade Jog-A-Thon 10:30 - 11:30am on Friday, April 29
We are excited to welcome all parents to join us on our Jog-A-Thon dates.
We are using Pledgestar again this year! Pledgestar is a fantastic web-based fundraising system that makes it much easier for you to request pledges from your family and friends, and for them to make secure credit card donations online.
The Jog-A-Thon is our only student-led fundraiser. Funds raised from the Jog-A-Thon help bridge the gap between our operating cost and tuition cost. Our per-student fundraising goal is $150. This is not a required amount, but it is our goal for each student.
Registration is easy:
- Go to the Pledgestar website HERE.
- Select “Not Registered For This Year’s Event”
- Enter your name and email address, then click “Submit”
- Follow the instructions on-screen to register students
- Make sure that you complete the shirt size section so that your student will get a Jog-A-Thon running shirt.
When you complete your registration, the system allows you to email pledge requests to your family and friends and allows them to make secure credit card donations online. You get notified each time a pledge is made. You and your student(s) can track your pledge progress online.
All Jog-A-Thon communication will go out weekly in the Sunday bulletin. Please make sure that you read the Jog-A-Thon section in the weekly bulletin for updates, prizes, winners & general information about the event.
MIDDLE SCHOOL COLOR BLAST
Our plan is to hold the Color Blast for the middle school at the end of their Jog-A-Thon on the same day. If weather calls for rain that week, we will still have the Jog-A-Thon, but postpone the Color Blast to a later date when the weather calls for sunshine.
NOTE: Middle school students must participate in the Jog-A-Thon in order to participate in the Color Blast.
