Elementary Jog-a-thon

​It’s JOG-A-THON Time!

The Jogathon will be here before we know it. This is a super awesome fundraiser for the school! Elementary students get pledges and run laps.

Mark your calendars for Friday, May 8th, so you don’t miss out on the fun! We’ll have t-shirts, prizes, face painting, a super slide, and a picnic to celebrate our kids and school!

Jog-a-thon Pledges Move Online! 
 
We are moving all of our Jog-a-thon pledges online this year! We had online pledging available in a limited capacity last year, and it was well received. So, we are using a service this year called RallyUp that will process and receipt all pledges automatically. As you collect pledges from family, friends and neighbors, just direct them to this site: http://rallyup.com/5201a4
 
It's even mobile friendly so you can record pledges from a phone or tablet! We want to encourage you to send the link out via email or share it on Facebook and let your friends and family know why Shoreline Christian is so important to your family. 
 
If anyone is hesitant to use a credit card, they can still pay their pledge by check.
 
Please contact Jonathan at jassink@shorelinechristian.org if you have any questions about the system.

Prize?  If we reach our goal as an entire elementary we will have a pizza prize for every student and teacher.  The class with the top mileage per student will receive ice cream bars as well.

We Need Volunteers

This is a great community event. To make it the best it can be we need helpers now.  Please consider committing to help the week of the Jogathon and the day of the Jogathon. Not only is your help a great way to spend time with the SCS community, it is also a fun way to earn volunteer hours. 

We need many people to help before and the day of the Jogathon. We need lap counters, water sprayers, bouncy slide attenders, errand runners, set up and tear down help, and more. Please email Jonathan if you are interested in volunteering.
