Gemini’s 30th Annual Jog-a-Thon is coming up on Friday, November 4th.

This is Gemini’s largest fundraiser of the year as all students participate.  Pledge forms went home in last week’s Thursday folders.  Students can collect pledges per lap or be given a lump sum on their pledge cards or ONLINE.  Please take advantage of this easy online donation link.  It can emailed to friends  and family afar.  Many parents also choose to run with their children or come out in spirit to help count laps, hand out water or simply cheer the students on.

Donations can be made using your student’s Jog-A-Thon form or online below. When donating via PayPal – on the checkout confirmation page – please note the name of the child and their teacher that you are sponsoring.




HOW IT WORKS

Students will ask people to sponsor them for a certain amount of money per lap or make a single donation. Then, during their grade’s time period on the 18th, each student will run, walk, jog or wheel around Gemini’s track as many times and he or she can! The maximum number of laps permitted is 50.
