Niwot Elementary Jog-a-thon

It’s about time for our 7th annual Jog-a-thon to help raise money to benefit our African sister school, Mwebaza Primary School!

Our May “Late Start Day,” Wednesday, May 4th.

4th and 5th grades from 11:45-12:15 pm
2nd and 3rd grades from 12:30-1:00 pm
1st grade and Kindergarten from 1:15-1:45 pm

Students can fundraise by collecting pledges per lap or just a flat donation. Ask family and friends for donations, but we DO NOT want students to solicit door to door!

As in past years, ALL proceeds raised will be used to benefit disadvantaged Ugandan schoolchildren, so fundraising efforts are greatly appreciated! Funds from past Jog-a-thons have been used to buy property for a school playground and garden and construct the walls and roof of the middle school being constructed for Mwebaza students. This year, Jog-a-thon funds will be used to complete the construction of the middle school for the graduates of Mwebaza Primary School!

After each student completes the Jog-a-thon on May 4th, he or she needs to collect any donations, place them in the designated envelope labeled “Jog-a-thon,” and put that envelope in his or her class’ collection envelope. Funds are due by Friday, May 13th.
