Move-a-thon

Wed., November 7, 2018 | WW Playground | All Day

During Move-a-thon, Wedgwood students raise money for the Wedgwood PTA by collecting pledges (per-mile donations, or flat donations) and then walking, jogging, running, skipping… “moving” around the (1/8th mile) school track for 20 minutes. And wow, are these kids proud to put in the miles!!

Marty the Marmot comes out in support, music blares, and our principal will run a few (million) laps with his students. Plus, kids enjoy yummy snacks at the finish! It’s a fun, community building fundraiser in which every student participates (whether or not they elect to fundraise).

Pledges are due Friday, November 16, 2018. Methods of payment:

  1. By Check. Return the Move-a-thon Form plus check for the grand total, made payable to Wedgwood PTA, via kid mail (or dropped off in the main office).

  2. Via online donation. To ensure that your student is eligible for prizes, please type your student's name and classroom # in the 'Company' field.

Thank you for your support!

:: On Move-a-thon day, every child and staff member gets an official (student-designed) Move-a-thon T-shirt! Laps are tallied directly on the child’s shirt using permanent marker, making these shirts nothing short of memorabilia… PTA seeks the help of local businesses to cover the cost of the T-shirts. Starting at $150, business sponsors receive prominent recognition on the shirts, at the event, and on the PTA website.
