Move-a-thon is THIS Friday!

Get Ready…Get Set…to MOVE on October 16th!

 The John Hay Move-a-Thon is this FRIDAY!  All students and staff will move (run, jog, walk) around a course for 20-30 minutes, raising funds with every step.

 John Hay’s goal of $67,000 for this year’s Move-a-thon translates into approximately $150 per student.  This is money that pays for art, music, tutors, advanced learning …and much much more!

WE NEED YOUR HELP IN MAKING THIS A SUCCESS AND REACHING OUR GOAL!  Please spend some time gaining support and participation from family, friends and neighbors. Here are a few ideas for making the most of this fundraising opportunity:

« Pledge by the Lap:   Some kids really like to challenge themselves to run a certain number of laps. Supporters can pledge an amount per lap, and then kids can collect funds after Move-a-Thon Day, based on the actual number of laps run.

 « Donations in Advance:  Sometimes donors (or kids!) prefer a single collection. Supporters can make a donation before the Move-a-Thon in any amount they wish.

 « Donations by Mail:  Reach out to friends and family far away.  Remember – all donations are tax deductible!

 « Corporate matching programs.Many companies will match their employees’ charitable giving. Move-a-Thon donations qualify for matching. Please take the time to complete any necessary paperwork; these funds really add up!

* Have a bake sale  or a garage sale.  Have a lemonade stand. or sell hot chocolate at your soccer game.  Make it fun for the kids to raise their own money.  Remember, you can still raise money after the Move-a-Thon as envelopes are not due until November 2nd!
