Jog-A-Thon is our annual elementary fundraiser that helps support Tree of Life. Response to the COVID-19 virus has rearranged our schedules in many ways, not excluding Jog-A-Thon. It would be easy to surrender in defeat and not have the event, but we don’t believe that fits with who we are. Our Tree community has always been one to encourage...and right now, we believe we all need some encouragement!

Jog-a-Thon is as important and necessary this year as ever, if not more so.

WHY are we doing Jog-a-thon?

The current situation has impacted everyone in our Tree of Life community in some capacity. We know that some of our families have been significantly impacted financially. This year the goal of JAT will be to provide additional financial resources for families in need of financial aid to stay at Tree as a direct result of this pandemic. ALL of the net proceeds will be used for this purpose.

HOW are we doing the fundraising for Jog-a-thon?

This year's fundraising will all be done online. We will once again provide a link for students to post or send to family and friends. We will have a simple prize structure for students as well.

HOW will we celebrate?

We will still have a celebratory event at our Northridge campus on Friday, May 8. It will be a drive-thru only event. Here is a little sneak peek into what we’re planning:

On the morning of the 8th, students will warm up and jog at their respective homes with Quintar and friends via video!

Later that same day, students will come to Northridge for a short but fun drive-thru celebration, never leaving their vehicles. We would love to have you be part of this safe (social/physical distance friendly), but fun event! Many familiar faces will be there to greet them with waves and cheer (from at least 6 feet away!)...104.9 the River and the River Dog, the Columbus Zoo, and Chick-Fil-A to name a few...and hopefully you! We want our whole elementary community to be celebrated AND encouraged. If you are comfortable, we would love to have you there safely waving and giving (and receiving!) love! There would be no other expectations of you at this event.
