Jog-a-thon Fundraiser

Jog-a-thon 2018
Thursday October 25

This all-school event is the PTSA’s main fundraiser, and we ask all families to make a generous donation. With the funds raised, PTSA provides vital programs such as science enrichment, art docent program, Reflex math enrichment, classroom materials, teacher appreciation, field trip grants, not to mention events like the Science Fair and Dance Week and Family Dance Night. Lakeview PTSA provides numerous opportunities for our children that would not otherwise be funded by the state or district budgets.

Our Goal
We hope to raise $80,000 and challenge each student to raise $150.00. Your family can help by:

  1. Collecting donations, including those company matching donations
  2. Returning donation envelopes on or before October 25.
  3. Joining the fun on Jog-a-thon day!
