QAE Jog-a-thon 2011 was a huge success!
Thank you to all of the wonderful parent volunteers who joined us for Friday’s event, and to all of you who helped your students gather sponsors!
Our sun dance seemed to have a miraculous effect as the rain clouds parted at about noon and held off until the very end of the day. Kids were running like crazy and when they weren’t running they were cheering the others on - amazing enthusiasm and team spirit! There were rockets painted on faces, great music to keep everyone fired up, teachers, parents, and siblings running, and lots of treats as well as Pinkabella cupcake tokens & Molly Moon ice cream tickets as rewards. The kids had a blast, and we blasted right through our fundraising goal!
We’re going to hold off on announcing our total dollars raised until we have finished collecting donations…. There were quite a few students who filled their sponsor forms but didn’t collect all of their donations up front—if you had donations that were done by the mile, or have sponsors that you weren’t able to collect from before Friday, please do collect those and turn them in via orange folders in the next couple of days. We’ll plan to announce our total this Friday! Thank you!
