    Whittier Jog-A-Thon 2019

    Whittier Jog-A-Thon

    Stride to Show Your Wildcat Pride!

    An exciting new Wildcat tradition. Get your sneakers ready for the Jog-A-Thon on June 21st, 2019. Race into the end of the school, putting the FUN in fundraising! Every student is invited to run, jog or walk and will earn a fantastic Whittier running themed prize and a Popsicle!

    How does it work? Kids walk, jog or run around the playground during the school day. Each grade walks or runs as many laps as they can in their 30-minute period.

    How much are we trying to raise?
    We encourage Kids to gather sponsorships from family, friends and neighbors. Our fundraising goal for the Jog-A-Thon is $16,000 or approximately $50 per student. Funds raised at the Jog-A-Thon will be used to fund Whittier PTA sponsored programs such as staffing positions, artists in residence and field trips!

    How do I sponsor a Wildcat Runner?
    Students can raise Jog-A-Thon Sponsorships online or in person, as flat donations or per lap pledges.
    1. Set up an online profile today!
    2. Pledge envelopes will be sent home in KidMail on Friday, June 7!


    Jog-A-Thon 2018: Thank you Whittier families!

    Whittier families raised $10,000 for Bailey Gatzert at 2017-2018 jog-a-thon. Bailey Gatzert’s Building Leadership Team (BLT) has determined it would be best to focus the gift on family engagement, helping to bridge the different languages and cultures of Bailey Gatzert families. The dollars will be used for family events including Family Feedback Night, RULER Family Night, Academic Parent Teaching Teams evening, home visits, and the creation of a school Family Room. Thank you Wildcat families for your support!
