McKinley JOG-A-THON Fundraiser
One of the Biggest School
Fundraising Events of the Year!

This year our McKinley Jog-A-Thon Fundraiser will take place on October 27, 2022!

We are happy to announce that we will have an IN-PERSON Jog-A-Thon event this year!  Mark your calendars as we will need plenty of parent volunteers for this event.

The McKinley Parent Teacher Club’s JOG-A-THON is one of our school’s BIGGEST fundraisers and your support is vital. Most importantly this is the only event where the kids take the lead in raising money for their school. Did you know that ALL of McKinley’s art, ceramics, dance, garden, music, and Spanish programs are no longer funded by the school district? The only reason our kids get to participate in these programs is because we raise the money to fund them.


All students, teachers and staff will be receiving a FREE Jog-A-Thon t-shirt featuring the winning design from the school-wide contest. We feel strongly that all students should have a free t-shirt to wear to the event to show their McKinley spirit and foster a sense of community.

During the week of September 12th, students participated in a t-shirt design contest where the winning design will be printed on all the Jog-A-Thon t-shirts. The t-shirt contest is great fun, though participation is voluntary. Drawings are done during class hours and must be done completely by the student. Parents and teachers may not help with this project. 

Each class will vote for ONE winning picture to be submitted for their class. And, in response to community feedback, students will also get to vote on the top finalist designs. 

This year, we have chosen the IB Learner Profile “Open Minded” as a theme. The design should highlight respect of all cultures and values, an openness to different points of view, and a willingness to grow.

Families: Don’t worry, there is nothing you need to do or bring for this design contest. However, this could be an opportunity to spark a conversation about open-mindedness and McKinley with your child. 

SAVE THE DATE! More info coming soon
