How do pledges work?
The Jog-‐a-‐thon raises money by students and their families soliciting sponsors (your family, friends, neighbors and coworkers) to pledge at a flat rate. Let them know how many laps you plan on running, jogging or walking to inspire those donations! Donations are tax deductible. One lap around the field is equal to approx. a 1/5 of a mile.
To be eligible for prizes all donations are due to your child’s teacher by 8:10 am on Friday, October 11th. Prizes will be awarded to students raising total pledges at the following levels:
Phoebe Runner: $20 to $49.99 = T-‐shirt (Exciting New Color!!!) which is accepted as uniform
Dragon Buddy: $50 to $99.99 = T-‐shirt & new water bottle
Dragon Master: $100 & up = T-‐shirt, new water bottle & a PH Jog for the Arts beanie hat.
