While we may only be a few weeks in, 2021 is already shaping up to be totally amazing. Maybe you aren’t there quite yet, but thanks to your faithful Jog-A-Thon Committee, your kids/students will be very soon.
Yes, there is a bright spot on the horizon because in 2021, we (the Jog Team) have gone all sorts of creative and taken our annual FUND-raiser, typically held in the Fall, and adapted it to today’s new, uh, “reality”.
So, without further ado, we want to introduce you to our (hopefully one and only) FUN (not FUND) raiser, the “Virtual Jog Across America!”. Yes, for four straight weeks, our kids will run, skip, jog, walk, jump-rope, cartwheel (?), over fifteen-thousand glorious miles throughout our lower forty-eight contiguous states. They/we will jog past national landmarks, striking landforms, Capitol Buildings, prominent battlefields and a few completely random and often overlooked places that are near and dear to this Jog-A-Thon Chairs heart.
Yes, it is gonna be AMAZING, AWE-INSPIRING, EDUCATIONAL, HUMBLING, FUN, maybe a bit OVERWHELMING? Whatever it will be, it will be FREE and who can complain about that.
So Greenhills Families, are you with me? Then read on...
The “VIRTUAL JOG ACROSS AMERICA” will take place from: Monday, Feb. 22, 2021 to Monday, March 22, 2021. Over the course of these four weeks student will "jog":
*** And yes, we will play this by ear and do what we need to do to "get there" by March 22nd! ***
We need YOU (the adult) to make sure to LOG the total number of miles completed by your student each week. We need you to do this by each Friday at 11:59PM. And we will send you LOTS OF REMINDERS because that is something we are really good at :).
