April 30th - May 7th


The Jogathon is a fun, community building event that promotes wellness and fitness by encouraging students and their families to get outside and move. Through family donations and corporate sponsorships our goal is to raise $13,000. 100% of proceeds from this event go to support Roosevelt programs!

Sponsorship Opportunities

Jogathon 2021

Walk • Jog • Roll • Stroll • Race at your own pace!

In the spirit of new opportunities and new beginnings, we’re launching the first annual Roosevelt Elementary Jogathon this year from April 30th to May 7th. We’ll be doing it in a loose and decentralized style, but we will be approaching it with the same sense of fun and community that we’ve utilized to stay connected during this unprecedented year. Please make sure to join us for the school-wide assemblies, participate in the Jogathon activities (post pictures!), and ask your friends and family to donate to support our PTA!

We are hoping this event will fundraiser much needed funds to help fill the gaps in funding as a result of this most difficult year. If we each raise $20 by reaching out to friends, family, and community partners we can reach our goal of $13,000. Proceeds from the Jog-A-Thon will supplement educational programs, books, technology, software, supplies and equipment for the 2021-2022 academic year. It also supports the PTA’s other community-based activities like our classroom supplies, online resources, campus beautification, class events, and much more! No donation is too small.

We have planned many awesome activities and events for our students along the way (and maybe some surprises, too!). Please make sure you check back here to this page for an up-to-date schedule of Jogathon activities!

This year, the rubber meets the road as our Jog-A-Thon extends across the neighborhood. Multiple start and finish lines allow you to complete this in a manner that suits you the best. And allows us all to stay safe and socially distanced throughout the week.

Instead of a single event on a single day, our Jog-A-Thon spreads across TIME and SPACE, allowing you to complete the 5 separate courses at any point over a whole week, between April 30th and May 7th. Stay safe, and be sure to use care on the streets. Participate during daylight hours. Wear bright colors. Participating with an adult is strongly encouraged.

5 colored routes to complete: Purple, Red, Green, Blue and Yellow. Get from Point A to Point B on whatever path suits you, as long as you’re on foot!

Each completed course earns you a new entry in our raffle! Win fabulous prizes like an Apple HomePod, Fitbit Ace, or a rocket trip to Mars (pending personal support from Elon Musk).

Send a shoutout!

Community Sponsorship

Roosevelt Elementary PTA is proud to announce our inaugural Jogathon to support student wellness and physical activity as part of our learning environment. We are hoping this event will help us raise much needed funds. We invite all families to participate by reaching out to friends, family, and community partners to help reach our goal of $13,000. Proceeds from the Jogathon will supplement educational programs, technology, supplies and equipment for the 2021-2022 academic year.

This school-wide event will take place between April 30th and May 7th. We have a student population of 650 students that will be invited to participate in this event, and the event will be highly visible all over the community.

To help our students get in the spirit, we hope to provide prizes and a t-shirt to every student to wear the day of the Jogathon and throughout the school year. By partnering with local businesses, we are able to promote our community partners and cover this expense.
