    JOG-A-THON

    Wednesday, May 16th
    8:00 am to 11:00am!

    The Jog-a-thon is the second most important fundraiser at Leschi; thank you for helping your child find sponsors and collect pledges from family members, friends and neighbors.

    Every class decides on a theme or costume to wear while they run (or walk) the 1/15 mile course for 15 minutes on the Leschi playground...it is quite a sight to see! Students are encouraged to collect sponsors & pledges but fundraising is NOT required and every student who participates will receive a popsicle after finishing.

    After the run, students receive a “lap total” card so they know how many laps they completed and they can report back to their sponsors and collect any pledge money. Pledge money should be returned to school by June 4th and checks should be made out to the Leschi PTA.

    AWARDS & PRIZES!!!!

    • Every student who participates receives a POPCICLE. Thanks to Leschi Market for donating popcicles.
    • The GOLDEN SHOE AWARDS go to the classrooms that run the most collective laps in their lunch period.
    • The CLASS SPIRIT plaque and ice cream parties for the classes voted to have the greatest class spirit and creative costume/themes.
    • FASTEST IN THE CLASS prize goes to the girl and boy who run the most laps in their class. Last year this prize was a $5.00 Starbucks gift card.

    4th GRADERS – raise money for 5th Grade Camp!!!

    • 4th graders can choose to use the money raised during the jog-a-thon to pay for camp tuition.
    • Tell sponsors their pledge will help send you to 5th grade camp at IslandWood Camp on Bainbridge Island!

    All spectators are welcome, the more people cheering the runners, the more laps they run!
