Jog-A-Thon 2019


Help raise money and have fun in the process

The “Patriot Pride” Ben Franklin Jog-A-Thon takes place on October 3th, 2019.  The Jog-a-Thon is our school’s annual fundraiser and all proceeds will support programs for our entire student body.  Money raised from this year’s event will provide enrichment opportunities for the school like; Family Fun Nights, cultural assemblies, playground and sports equipment, back to school ice cream social, field trip support, end of year picnic, and more!

Everything you need to collect pledges is included in a jog-a-thon packet that will be included in Friday folders.  Please use the pledge envelope to record your child’s pledges and include collected donations.  Don’t forget to check out all the reward prizes and parties on the back of this letter.
