The annual Jackson School Fun Run is going virtual this year, and with a twist! While we wish we could celebrate in person together, we hope you'll join us for our annual fundraiser. Let's get moving and build up our community together!
WHAT: Move! Students set personal goals and accomplish the activities on the soon-to-be revealed BINGO card! They complete challenges and collect pledges from family and friends to support their class! It's a great blend of an individual goal setting and team effort!
WHEN: 16 November to 23 November. To give our students and families flexibility, the Move-A-Thon will run an entire week! Students can set their own goals to help their class!
HOW: Create a participant page for your student to forward to friends and family. They will be able to pledge a flat donation or per activity box completed! Donations will be accepted until 24 November! If you cannot make an online donation and would prefer to write a check, please contact our treasurer for more information at email@example.com.
We understand that this fundraiser comes at a difficult and unusual time for everyone. We thank you for your continued support of our students and our teachers!
Our fundraising goal this year is $10,000. Because you are not purchasing “goods,” your Move-A-Thon pledges will be 100% tax deductible! Keep in mind that this is the most SIGNIFICANT fund-raising activity for the school year. Please participate and check with your employer to see if matching contributions are available. Many companies such as Intel, Oracle, Columbia and Nike will match a percentage of your donations. Students and classes will have an opportunity to earn a number of prizes and awards based on their participation in the Move-A-Thon, however, please note the company’s donation cannot be applied to the student’s total pledge.
