The Jog-A-Thon is an annual fundraising event put on at each Zionsville Elementary school. This event was created to reduce the number of fundraisers needed to support our students and school staff throughout the year. It is the only fundraiser where we ask students to directly participate and one of only TWO fundraising events throughout the year.
The Jog-A-Thon takes place on a quarter-mile course in the back parking lot of Boone Meadow Elementary, and students will be given time to jog (or walk) as many laps as they can. All students, grades PreK-4, will participate throughout the day at different times. They will be provided a Jog-A-Thon t-shirt to wear that day and encouraged to participate in the annual theme.
Preschool: 9:50-10:20 am
Kindergarten: 12:30-1:15 pm
1st & 2nd Grade: 8:35-9:30 am
3rd & 4th Grade: 10:30-11:40 am
You are welcome to join us to cheer on your favorite runner! Bring signs and yell loud in the designated cheering section in the back parking lot of the school. Please make your way AROUND the OUTSIDE of the school to find the designated cheering area!
To maximize your donations, consider the following fundraising ideas:
All students can participate in Jog-A-Thon by fundraising before the event. There are three ways to collect donations:
*Make sure your student's name and their teacher's name are on all donations brought to the school, so they get the credit! All pledged donations are due on Friday. Oct. 13.
