Dear Bohemia Families,
We are excited to announce the 2018 Jog-A-Thon Fundraiser! This year the goal is to raise $15,000 in order to pay for enrichment programs at Bohemia Elementary.
What is the Jog-A-Thon? This is Bohemia’s largest fundraiser where families, friends and neighbors pledge money to support the students as they run, walk, skip or dance laps around the school’s track during a 30 minute time period. The Jog-A-thon takes place during your child’s regular school day. All students will participate, unless there is a medical reason why the student should not participate.
How do we raise money?
Sponsors may sign up to pledge a flat dollar amount and/or a per lap donation. Students will have three weeks to obtain pledges. After the Jog-A-thon, students will receive a lap card stating the number of laps completed. The students will have one week to collect pledges and return them to their teacher by April 20th, 2018.
Can I get involved?
Absolutely! We encourage all family members to join their students as they run, walk, skip or dance around the track.
PRIZES! PRIZES! PRIZES!
After the Jog-A-Thon, students will have the opportunity to earn prizes as a way for the PTC to say “thank you” for their hard work and returning their pledges on time.

In addition to raising money for our school, this is an activity that promotes healthy living. Students are encouraged to wear tennis shoes and to bring a refillable water bottle from home. We will have water available for all students! After completing the Jog-A-Thon, students will get a snack for participating.
