It’s time for the 2022 Jog-a-Thon!
The purpose of this wonderful event is to promote physical fitness, raise money for our school, and to HAVE FUN!! The Jog-a-Thon is Darnaby’s largest student-led fundraiser with all money raised going towards classroom supplies, music programs, playground equipment, and so much more. Your student’s educational experience will be greatly enhanced for not only this year but years to come with your support.

WHEN: The Jog-a-thon will be held on September 30th. Each grade’s participants will have a 5-minute warm up, followed by 25 minutes of jog time (10 minutes for Pre-K and 15 minutes for kindergarten) to complete as many laps as they wish. They will then be given 10 minutes of cool down and refreshments.
WHERE: The Jog-a-Thon will be held on the Jog-a-thon field located on the north side of the school. Parents are welcome to attend this event and will be able to run with their kids this year. The designated area for parents to cheer on their student is on the east side of the Jog-a-thon field by the metal slides. Please do not stand on the south side of the JAT course between the course and the school. This area needs to stay clear for students to enter and exit the course for water.
DRESS: Students should wear comfortable, well-fitting shoes and clothing for example jogging shorts and tennis shoes to run in. This year, thanks to the generosity of our Corporate Sponsors and parents, every student will receive their very own Jog-a-thon t-shirt to wear during the run! Depending on the weather, it might be best to wear layers so adjustments can be made for our rapidly changing weather.
Students should bring their own water bottle if this is available to them. Water will also be available on the course.
DONATIONS: You can set-up your student’s own personal donation page, by logging into your account at http://darnabypta.org and by selecting the Jog-a-thon fundraiser link. Add an optional custom message, then share this individualized link with family and friends. You may set up email recipient addresses directly on your donation page (which will be sent out the day of Jog-a-thon) or copy and share the personalized link through Facebook or other social media sites. We highly encourage donations be made online through the website. Cash and/or checks will also be accepted, but there may be a delay in counting and recording physical donations. You may send cash and/or check donations in an envelope with you student’s name to the front office or their teacher.
Also, did you know that many companies offer Company Match? Double your child’s donations by checking to see if your employer will match your donation.
