The Jog-A-Thon is one of PTA's 2 main fundraisers this year (PTA Pledge Drive and Jog-A-Thon).
The Jog-A-Thon is back and better than EVER! This is the BIGGEST fundraiser of the year for the PTA and we need all hands on deck to make it a success! Cypress Village PTA financially supports so many of the beloved programs and events on campus for our students, such as family nights, field trips, assemblies, art programing (including Reflections art program), Back to School Picnic, Book Fair, Carnival, International Night, Art Masters, Stormy Sprinters, Staff/Teacher Appreciation, Dad's Club, 4 Kids by Kids and the list goes on! Participation in Jog-a-Thon fundraising is completely optional, but we sure hope you do what you can to raise the much-needed funds.
How does it work? First and foremost, Jog-a-thon is a school-wide event. Every student, staff member, and volunteer will receive a FREE 2021 Jog-a-thon shirt and this year ALSO a free water bottle. The t-shirts will be funded through the generous donations of our event sponsor. Even if you don’t raise funds, EVERYONE will participate on the day of. Remember Jog-a-thon is a FUN-RAISER before it’s a FUNDRAISER!
How do we raise money? Students will raise money for Cypress Village Elementary PTA by seeking pledges from family and friends. This way students will ask for the donation and there is no pressure at the event for them to run a certain number of laps or keep track. This maximizes the fun factor!
How do I get Pledges? It’s easy to ask friends and family in person or online! Register at https://pledgestar.com/CypressPTA/ and follow the simple steps. It takes just minutes to set up your child’s fundraising page to request pledges online.
