A Fun, Successful Community-Building Fundraising Event
Thanks for joining us for a truly memorable day! We cannot thank our Sumac Voyagers enough for the incredible participation in this year's Jog-a-Thon fundraiser. With SEVEN classes hitting 100% participation, and over 69% participation overall, we surpassed our $35,000 goal, and raised nearly $40,000 for Sumac's exceptional programs.
If your student earned one of the experience prizes, keep an eye out for information coming soon, but the event date for each prize is shown at right >>
Sumac’s Reach for the Stars Jog-a-Thon
Sumac’s PFA is excited to host this year’s "Reach for the Stars" Jog-a-thon! It is our goal to bring our community together to raise $35,000 to keep Sumac’s special programs such as PE, Art Science and Library alive!
Thanks to the generous support of local community businesses and the Sumac PFA’s decision to not use a third-party to host this event, 100% of the pledges will go directly to supporting our Sumac students!
Join us in supporting our students and help us reach our 2017 goal of $35,000!
Make A Pledge That Supports Your Students
Fundraising Details for Students
Sumac will once again be using the online Pledgestar platform to make it easier for you to reach out to your family and friends to ask for their support. Simply visit our school’s pledge page HERE, and in less than 3 minutes your child(ren)’s page will be complete!
Set-up is as easy as 1-2-3!
Family and friends will then receive a personalized email from your child(ren). When they click on the donate link, they will be taken to a personalized donation page. Family and friends may pay directly on the site via a secure, online payment portal that deposits donations directly into the school’s account, or they may mail checks directly to the school. Upon completion of the donation, friends and family will receive a Thank You note from your child, complete with a tax donation receipt. How easy is that?!?
Help us reach our donation goal of $35,000 !
Some of the cool features of our online pledge tool:
Donation Dashboard: Monitor your child(ren)’s success with their Donation Dashboard to see who donated and how much they raised.
Multiple Children: Pledgestar will automatically split all donations amongst your children. So if Nana and Papa want to make one donation for $35, each child will automatically receive credit for $17.50.
Jog-a-thon Event Details
All Students Participate - The fitness portion of the Jog-a-thon is an all-school event. Like participating in P.E., students are encouraged to jog, run or walk, according to their abilities, even if they aren't collecting donations.
Yes, It's a Race!
The days of marking the backs of their t-shirts for every lap they complete are long gone! Each student will have a professional race Timing Chip label attached to their shirt that registers how many times they run around the 1/7th mile track. You will be able to see your student's statistics at the end of the day to celebrate their success!
The 1st, 2nd & 3rd place Girls and Boys in each grade will be presented with a medal on the day of the Jog-a-thon. All students will receive finishers' medals for participating in this fun event!
Students will run with their grade level on a 1/7th mile course around Sumac's baseball field located near the YMCA building.
We are grateful for our sponsors and their commitment to supporting our students. Click the Sponsor Logos to visit their websites.
