Jog-A-Thon is held every November on the back top at Newport Elementary. Students run or walk laps on tracks that are 1/8th of a mile to raise money for the school and show support of a healthy and active lifestyle. Students raise money by gathering pledges of either a set dollar amount or a dollar amount per lap that they run from friends, family, neighbors, etc.
All students receive a Jog-A-Thon t-shirt to wear to the event with event sponsors printed on the back. Students also have a lot of fun coming up with creative costumes either individually or as a class. Prizes are awarded in a variety of categories for students who run the most laps, are top pledge earners, as well as various raffle prizes. It's a great way to show your school spirit by helping your student raise pledges!
