The Jog-a-thon is one of the PTA’s main fundraising events. This popular annual event is the biggest fundraiser of the year!! It helps keep our kids physically fit and our school financially fit. Funds from the Jog-a-thon go directly to support and enhance enrichment at Northmont – everything from programs to supplies to field trips and assemblies!

While the goal of this event is to raise funds for the PTA, we put the Jog-a-thon together for three very important reasons. With your help, we will deliver on all three!!!

Create a fun, memorable experience for our children

Promote the importance of physical fitness

Build school spirit and pride


Collecting pledges is easier than you think – most people are happy to help. The key is to ask. Ask parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, neighbors you know (we do not recommend door-to-door soliciting!), family friends, parents’ co-workers, doctors, dentists, coaches, tutors, and babysitters. You can ask for donations based on how many laps your student runs or ask for a simple flat donation. Cash, checks (made payable to Northmont PTA), and electronic donations are all welcome. You can donate below via Venmo.


Our Jog A Thon will happen in the spring. Each About 4 classes at a time will head to the field and we will run for as many laps as we can. Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends – are ALL encouraged to jog WITH your student! Make it a great family event! We will have music to keep you moving as well as healthy snacks afterwards. It is a REALLY fun time!
