Sparky's Jog-a-Thon begins in just two weeks on Friday October 2nd!!  This year we are hosting a Virtual Jog-A-Thon due to Distance learning and we look forward to your student’s participation.

 

Your student(s) will have the opportunity to run for pledges during a week-long Jog-A-Thon from October 2nd through October 9th.  During this week, your student(s) can run whenever it is convenient for your family.  You have the option to pledge per minute your child(ren) runs or make a flat donation.

 

We would like to remind you, this is Sexton Mountain PTC's BIGGEST fundraiser of the year.  The funds raised at the Jog-A-Thon go directly to benefit the students of SME and help provide many opportunities throughout the year. Our PTC also funds the much needed technology and resources the staff need to provide the best experience possible.  We need your support to have a successful school year.  For more information on how this money is used, please attend the PTC meeting at 6:30pm on Tuesday, September 29th.  Everyone is welcome.

This year donations will go through our Jog-A-Thon web site.  We will also accept donations via check (made out to Sexton Mountain PTC) or cash mailed to the school, Attn: Sparky's Jog A Thon.  Donations can be pledged on a per minute basis, or a flat donation.  (Please keep track of how many minutes your child runs during this time if your student has collected per minute pledges.  Those numbers can be emailed to treasurer@sextonmountainptc.org at the end of the week and will be entered into the web site.) 

Follow the instructions below to sign up for your child(ren)’s fundraising account.  This site provides a safe and simple way to request and receive pledges from family and friends.
