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!
