VOLUNTEER TEAM NEEDED FOR
Kids Running

Our jog-a-thon fall fundraiser is one of the kids' favorite events of the year and is a crucial fundraising event for the Brooks PTA. Typically, students collect pledges thorough an online platform in the weeks before the event and then see how many laps they can run with their classmates in a 15-minutes period. In past years we have had almost 75% of students collecting pledges for this fun run event!! Funds raised help the PTA fun classroom enrichment, field trips and assemblies,  our art, garden, and STEAM programs, and much more! 

When is the Jog-a-thon?

  • If we are able to find a volunteer team, the next jog-a-thon will be on Friday, September 20, 2024.

What is needed to make it happen?

  • Planning for this event needs to start in August, as soon as school starts

  • Typically is takes a team of 1 - 4 volunteers to plan the event, with additional volunteers helping the day of the event. 

  • Volunteers are needed in these areas:

    • finding student incentives​

    • creating the campaign (e.g. communicating goal, event details, rules, etc. to students, parents, teachers; setting up online campaign with 99pledges or other platform)

    • Event Details and Layout, Logistics

    • Promotion (flyers, social media, and website)

    • Decorations

    • Volunteer recruitment

    • Finding sponsors
