Jog-a-thon on tap in Jenkintown
The fourth annual Drake gogJAJThon will be held on Oct. O6, from 8W1R a.m. to noon at the genkintown High School track. This has been a highly successful event for the elementary and middle school in past years. This year’s event has expanded district wide. Students will run, jog or walk for 30 minJ utes around a 1LR mile track, separated by age group. They will raise money for the home and school association.
7KH HYHNW, fiRVW RRJDJ nized in O009, has helped to build school spirit and a sense of community while promoting a healthy lifestyle for our children and raising money for the school. In asking for pledges per lap or as a lump sum, the children raised more than AT,R00 each year, while getting exercise and having fun. Money raised supports DFWLYLWLHV VuFK DV fiHOG trips, science programs, art and music.
