TO ALL STUDENTS AND FAMILIES:
Budget cuts continue to impact our school. We need your help!!
Our annual JOG-A-THON, being held on February 7th, 2018, is the BW Foundation’s primary fundraiser for the year.
The Foundation, which seeks to enhance our students’ learning and social environment, was established and is run by parents. Our organization has helped to support art and music programs, the computer lab, enrichment programs (such as Writer’s Corner and the Math Club), Panda Pages and the Running Club, as well as many other vitally important events and activities at BW.
How can my sponsors donate?
- A donation request form is provided with this handout. Payments may be made by cash or check, payable to Benchley Weinberger Foundation.
- Online/credit card donations: You asked and the Foundation listened! For the first time, Jog-a-Thon donations can be made online, via the Greater Giving website. Families can log on, find their student’s teacher, and set up their student’s personal donations webpage; personal weblinks can be shared with neighbors, friends, and family far and wide!

What will I get for participating?
Each child who runs will receive a Soccer Shots water bottle.
- Trophies and/or prizes will be given to students who run the most laps and those who raise the most money (NOTE: All donations must be turned in/submitted by running day to be considered for awards and prizes)
- Every student who raises at least $45 will also receive a cool Jog-a-thon T-shirt!
