DISCOVERY ELEMENTARY JOG-A-THON!

This year we’re kicking off our first ever Jog-a-thon & Color Run! This is an awesome way to raise money for the VPO programs that support our great school! Every child will participate in a Jog-a-Thon on June 16th. We will be collecting donations to qualify for different prize levels. These will be flat donations (not per lap).  

If we reach our fundraising goal of $8,000 by May 20th, we will have a school-wide COLOR RUN! Every child that collects and turns in at least $30 in donations by May 20th will receive a special Color Run T-shirt to wear during the event!

We are also looking for businesses to sponsor this event. Any business that makes a $150 or more donation to Discovery Elementary VPO will have their business name/logo on the back of a Color Run t-shirt. Any student that brings in a sponsor will automatically qualify for the special Color Run t-shirt (this DOES NOT go toward other prizes).  Sponsorships must be submitted by May 20th (see separate Sponsor Request form).
