JOG-A-THON — October 6, 2017

Giddy Up!

The Rosy Mound Jog-a-thon is Friday, October 6th!

The Jog-a-thon is a fun day for the entire Rosy Mound family!

It’s also THE ONLY fundraiser for the PTA budget!

Past Jog-a-thons have provided Rosy Mound students with playground equipment, building enhancements, assemblies and the Leader in Me™ program.



In an effort to broaden our fundraising reach, we are working with an online giving company.  Yes, you can still give the old-fashioned way, but this is an easy way to reach friends and relatives that don’t live nearby.  Here are the steps if your student would like to get a head start creating their web page:

  1. Register your child by visiting
  2. Click on “Parents and Donors”
  3. Then click on the star that says “Register your Child.”  Follow instructions to complete the process.
  4. In less than 5 minutes, you will be ready to share your child’s student fundraising web page via email and social media with friends and family


Support Rosy Mound Elementary and promote your business!  Below is a sponsorship form for you (or someone you know) to learn how a business could be a sponsor.  There are three levels of sponsorship.  The Gold, Silver and Bronze levels include placement in our 2017-18 Jog-a-thon sponsor banner, which is displayed at the event and then in the school gym for the rest of the year.  Hundreds of families will see your business sponsorship on a daily basis!

Keep an eye out for more Jog-a-thon information!


We need LOTS of VOLUNTEERS to make the event a success. This sign up is asking for assistance both for the actual day of Jog-a-thon, other events surrounding and the rain date (10/9). When signing up, if you aren’t able to be available on the rain date as well, please make a comment in your Sign Up Genius post.

Closer to Jog-a-thon day you will receive more information about the your volunteer role.

In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact Debbie Friggens at or 616.843.5726.

Thank you very much for your help.  We are looking forward to another fun and successful Jog-a-thon!
