The Jogathon will take place on Saturday, February 4th at Emerson Community Charter School from 8 AM to 11 AM. Jogathon T-shirts will be given out at the Jogathon so please arrive early!

We would like to thank our generous sponsors for helping provide t-shirts for the Jogathon including Tae Ryong Taekwondo, Prime Time Sports, the Westside Pavilion, Lauren Ravitz, Chad Lund, Marci Baron, Heyler Realty and Dana Cataldi. We would also like to thank Emerson Community Charter for allowing us to use their track for the race. Special thanks to Prime Time Sports for providing a DJ and Fiji Water for providing water for the Jogathon.
Please give your kids a good breakfast that day and be on time. We encourage you to make signs and cheer the kids on while they jog. There's no need to bring water bottles for Jogathon as Fiji Water has donated water for the race.
If you haven't already, please have your child get sponsors by asking family, friends, and neighbors for their support. Supporters can use the pledge form that went home in your child's homework folder (there are extra forms in the office) or make a donation on the Jogathon Fundraising website https://www.crowdrise.com/westwood-charter-jogathon-2017/fundraiser/westwoodcharter. Checks should be made out to W.I.S.E and turned in by February 15th. They can be turned in to the office or sent in your child's homework folder. Please write "Jogathon" on the outside of the envelope.
Past Jogathons raised enough money to enhance our playground and PE program, beautify the campus and purchase umbrellas and shade for the lunch area. This year, the Westwood Charter Jogathon donations will help fund benches and/or additional outdoor improvements to provide shaded seating and keep the children's lunch area clean. Any extra money raised will go to helping fund the P.E. program.
