This year's Jog-a-thon will be held on September 30th - October 5th!
Sparky's Jog-a-Thon begins in just three weeks on Thursday, September 30!! This year students will be running laps and raising money for their school from September 30-October 5th.
Your student(s) will have the opportunity to run for pledges during their PE Specials time with Mr. Miller (your child(ren) will see him once over those 4 days). 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 needs 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 6:30 pm on Tuesday, September 28th. Everyone is welcome.
This year donations will go through our Jog-A-Thon website. 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.
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.

When you finish, the system emails 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, and you can track your pledge progress online. Call 1-888-598-7510 if you need help.
