Bonny Slope’s 6th Annual Jog-A-Thon is just around the corner! The Jog-A-Thon is a school-wide event, promoting fun and fitness while raising essential funds for our school. Students will solicit pledges/donations and then run, jog, or walk their way to the finish line, generating Bobcat pride and funds! The money raised will be used to support programs that directly enrich our kids’ education.
A fundraising packet will be distributed in Friday Folders on April 18th. In the meantime, you can get a HEAD START by setting up a FirstGiving Fundraising page for your child(ren). YOU CAN START FUNDRAISING TODAY!
Create a FirstGiving page by noon on April 17th for your child(ren) to be eligible for a prize drawing at the Jog-A-Thon Kick-Off Assembly on April 18th.
