Fun, Family, Fitness, and FUNDRAISING!
The St. Mary, Star of the Sea School’s Jogathon is one of our school’s biggest fundraisers and your support is vital. This year we have a fun chicken theme to help inspire our kids to stretch, lace up, and go the distance for our school and community! Our goal is $75 per student.
Families, friends and neighbors pledge a flat rate to support our students as they run, jog, walk, or skip laps around the school field exercising, listening to music, and having fun! This will be followed by lunch, treats, and prizes. Families are invited to cheer on the sidelines or run with the kids.
DONATIONS ARE FULLY TAX DEDUCTIBLE! St. Mary’s is a 501(c) non-profit organization. Tax Identification #27-3959788

Can I get involved?
ABSOLUTELY! There are many opportunities to help out with this event before, during, and after. We will need parents to help mark the kids laps (2 adults per class), help set-up and/or break down, warm-up leaders, work the lunch station, or simply get out and run with the kids to keep their spirits up. If you are able to come and help out, it really is a blast! Please click on the link or contact Monica Cervantes at firstname.lastname@example.org to help out.
How do we raise money?
Before the Jogathon, each student obtains pledges and donations. We are asking students to get their families, friends, neighbors, and co-workers to sponsor them with a flat amount (e.g. $25 for the whole event).
In year’s past, we’ve used the funds for renovations and support of new programs, like our Library and Music rooms — come take a look!
Complete your sponsor form and return to the Front Office by Monday, November 6th.
How can I donate?
Cash, Check payable to St. Mary Star of the Sea School, or Credit Card online. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation!
