On the day of Jogathon:
1) Get Ready! Eat a healthy breakfast, wear good running clothes and shoes, wear your team color and bring a container of water.

2) Get Moving! When it's your class' turn, do your best! Run, jog or walk as many laps as you can in 30 minutes.

After Jogathon:
1) Collect Pledges! Let everyone know how many laps you did and collect pledges. Turn in all pledges on or before May 19th. Checks should be made payable to McKinley PTA.

Jogathon is an important fundraiser for our school; it helps pay for technology as well as science, PE, and classroom supplies as well as other things to make our kids' school day better! Your donations directly improve the daily lives of McKinley kids!

You can pledge online
Make a one-time donation using paypal or a credit card. We regret we cannot accept per-lap pledges online; You will be charged only the exact amount you enter. Because of the fees associated with PayPal, we suggest a minimum of $15 for online donations. If you are sponsoring multiple children, please do NOT enter separate payments for each child. Each transaction incurs a cost, so it's better for the school if you issue one payment and leave a note in the space provided for how much goes to each child. If you prefer to mail a check, please see below. 

You can enter the amount and the name of the child you're sponsoring during check out. Sponsoring two kids? Just write both names.

Or you can mail a check
If you'd like to mail a check, please make the check payable to "McKinley PTA" and in the memo line write "jogathon" and the child's name. Checks should arrive no later than March 10th. Please mail the check to:

McKinley PTA
2401 Santa Monica Blvd
