Get ready to take off at the 2023 Jog-a-Thon!
Attention, all you high-fliers! Prepare for the 2023 Jog-a-Thon, a mission designed to kick physical fitness into high gear, fundraise for our school, and above all, have a blast!
The Jog-a-Thon isn't just any event; it's the undisputed ace of Darnaby's student-led fundraisers. Every buck we bankroll here goes straight into the flight deck, fueling field trip grants, stocking up classrooms, boosting clubs, harmonizing music programs, and so much more. With your support, we're not just enhancing your student's educational experience for the year – we're setting a course for years of excellence.

WHEN: Now, mark your calendars, because we're taking off on September 29th. Each grade's squadrons will have a swift 5-minute warm-up, followed by a full 25 minutes of intense jogging action (Pre-K and kindergarten pilots get 10 and 15 minutes, respectively). They'll be burning rubber to complete as many laps as their wings can handle. After the mission, we'll give them 10 minutes to cool down and refuel – they've earned it! So gear up and join us for this epic mission!
WHERE: The 2023 Jog-a-Thon takes off from the Jog-a-thon field, situated on the north side of the school. Parents, you're our wingmen and wingwomen, so feel free to join the action and run alongside your young aces. The official cheering section for parents is located on the east side of the Jog-a-thon field.
One thing to keep in mind, though – we need to keep the south side of the JAT course clear. It's the runway for students to make quick pit stops for water. Let's ensure their path to hydration stays open, ensuring a smooth and successful mission!
DRESS: Alright, future Top Rangers, it's time to suit up for the mission! Your attire should be on point – comfortable, snug-fitting shoes and running-friendly gear, like jogger shorts and sneakers, are the way to go.
But wait, there's more: thanks to the generosity of our Corporate Sponsors and parents, every student gets their own custom Jog-a-thon t-shirt, perfect for the run. Weather can be as unpredictable, so be ready to adjust with layers depending on the conditions.
Now, here's a crucial piece of gear – your very own reusable water bottle. While there will be water stations on the course, having your own bottle, especially for our early readers, will make staying hydrated a breeze. So, get geared up and ready to conquer the skies!
