STUDENTS & FAMILIES
Redeemer families are asked to find sponsors for their children for the annual Jog-A-Thon event. Sponsors may include family, friends, coworkers, etc. Prior to the event, the sponsor pledge an amount for the student jogger's involvement in the event.
Families may set up their child(ren)'s sponsorship page(s) via PledgeStar, an online donation site designed specifically for pledge events. Once registered, you'll be able to enter your runner(s), upload their photo for their pledge-request letter, send pledge requests to family and friends, keep track of donations, and share on social media. Families will be able to access and track their child(ren)'s fundraising by logging back onto the PledgeStar site.
Alternatively, checks and cash may be collected by participants.
Redeemer students will attend school as usual the day of the Jog-A-Thon. Classes will take turns jogging on the field. See the jog schedule to determine your student's running time and shirt color. Each time block allows for students to arrive to the field, warm up, jog, take water breaks, cool down, and return to their classroom.
Parents, family, and friends are encouraged to watch and cheer from the observation deck on the upper patio.
Sponsors support our student joggers by pledging a donation amount prior to the Jog-A-Thon event.
PledgeStar is a platform used to raise pledge donations online. Sponsors will receive an email like the example below asking for a pledge. Follow the link in the email to go directly to the participant's PledgeStar fundraising site to make your donation.
