FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Is my child required to turn in $50 in pledges? No. Though we are hoping that every child at John Rogers can collect at least one pledge, there is absolutely no requirement to do so. Every student will participate on event day, and every student will get a T-shirt as a thank you for moving for John Rogers!
Why don’t we call it a Walk-A-Thon or Jog-A-Thon? Over the years we have observed that our kids enthusiastically participate with all kinds of movement. We have kids who roll in wheelchairs, who move with canes or walkers, and who run the laps. Sometimes we have movement stations where the kids can explore different ways they can move. So, it makes the most sense to focus on any kind of movement, rather than just one.
Are the pledges tax-deductible or eligible for matching gifts? Yes. 100% of your donation is tax-deductible. Our school Tax ID number is 91-1154646. Please check with your employer to see if they offer matching funds.
Can I come and watch? Absolutely! The more support for our student’s the better!
SPECIAL THANKS TO OUR MOVE-A-THON BUSINESS SPONSORS:
The PTA seeks the help of local businesses in our community to support our fundraising efforts at John Rogers Elementary – this includes both our Move-A-Thon and spring auction. Your support will extend to both of these events, and get your businesses recognized in a variety of places, including directly on the back of our Move-A-Thon t-shirt!
NOTE: On Move-A-Thon day, every child and staff member gets an official (student-designed) Move-A-Thon t-shirt, donated through Community Business Donations! Laps are tallied directly on the child’s shirt using permanent marker, making these shirts nothing short of memorabilia. For more information on community sponsorships or if you’d like to become a community sponsor, please contact Krista Torseth.
