The money you raise goes directly to enriching educational opportunities for our students and staff (such as traveling science programs, field trips, and teacher enrichment seminars), classroom activities, after school robotics and STEAM activities.


Each student will walk, run or jog for 45 minutes to run laps around a 125-yard track, on the school playground.  All students are invited to participate.

We need YOU!  It takes many volunteers to make the jog-a-thon run smoothly and be a success for our students, their families and our school.  Volunteers are needed, on the day of the jog-a-thon, to help with set up, count laps, the water station and clean up.  Volunteers are will also be needed to help with the bounce house party and to drive students to the $300 party.

Volunteers – Please complete and return the Volunteer Form


All money collected is due by Friday, November 15.  Donations are TAX DEDUCTIBLE.

Online Donations:  You can now donate online! Click HERE>>

Pledge Per Lap:  Following the jog-a-thon, a “Student Lap Count” sheet will go home with your student.  Please share this information with anyone who has given a “pledge per lap”.  Students who have “per lap” pledges should collect the money at that time.

Company Matching Funds:  Many companies match funds raised for nonprofit organizations.  This can double what your student raises – don’t forget to check!  We can help by providing the necessary information to your company/corporation.  Contact the office for help.

Checks should be made out to Los Altos Grace PSG.
