Fun Run Fundraiser
Donate before October 26th, 2023!


 

About the event
The JJ Hill PTO is holding its single fundraiser of the year, and the first in two academic years, right now culminating  with a run for the kids on October 26th, 2023. The time your student will run will be sent to you by their teacher. We encourage you to make signs to cheer your students on!
 
This fundraiser is how the PTO is able to provide each teacher, teaching assistant and specialist with money to spend on needed supplies for their classroom. It is also how we as a community  provide school supplies for each student, buy books for our library, and fund school events and field trips.
We've set a goal of $45,000 to raise! It's a big goal, but we believe that we can make it! We are going to be providing shirts for the kids to wear again this year as well.
 
Previously, families would get to show up to encourage the kids to run as many laps as they could, sponsored by their community. The PTO has long worked to have a single big fundraiser so that the kids aren't asked to sell anything, and there's only one ask to the community.
How do we raise the money?
We collect donations from J.J. Hill parents and local businesses, but the biggest source of revenue is the money our students collect from their extended families, neighbors and friends. It's a great way for students to build confidence and communication skills, and it's also a good excuse to meet the neighbors and connect with aunts, uncles and grandparents.

Volunteer

If you're already going to be at school to cheer on your child(ren), consider volunteering to help our Fun Run run smoothly (pun intended). Contact Sarah Cook (volunteer coordinator) with questions.

This year all fundraising will be done with GoFundMe. If you have cash or check please email fundraising@jjhillpto.org.
