Hi McKinley Community!

Jog-A-Thon is fast approaching!

Reminders for the day of the event:

  1. Please make sure your child is dressed in their Jog-A-Thon t-shirt (t-shirts will go home with your child on Friday, October 22 at the earliest)
  2. Bring a water bottle
  3. Wear comfortable athletic shoes for running

Since families can’t be on campus this year, with the help from Ms. Ganderton and staff, we have created a special route to cheer on the students! Children will start by the Yoga Statue at their designated time listed above, proceed with a slow jog following Ms. Tennies down Felton St, and enter through the gates (the 4th/5th grade gate entrance) by the blue playground, onto the track. Official lap tracking will start on the track.

Families will be allowed to watch and cheer along Felton St during this time.

Photographs are encouraged!

Signs and cheering are strongly encouraged!

Though we do ask that you do not stop your child while they are making their way from the Yoga Statue to the track. The window to see students along Felton is short, so we recommend arriving 5-10 minutes earlier than the time listed on the schedule to ensure you don’t miss your child and their classmates. Though families are NOT allowed onto the playground or track, we encourage you to watch from the outside.

Please feel free to contact the committee with any questions. jogathonmckinley@gmail.com
