Off & Running
A FUNdraising event for the J.J. Hill PTO
October 24, 2019 | 7:45 a.m. - 1 p.m.
Off & Running (AKA the Fun Run) is the biggest fundraiser of the year for the J.J. Hill PTO. It's how we pull in the money that provides educational tools for our classrooms, defrays the cost of field trips for students in need, and creates fun community events that keep families connected to our school.
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 the students themselves collect from their extended families 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 re-connect with aunts, uncles and grandparents.
Sounds great! How can I help?
Register your children using our online portal. This will allow students to receive online donations using email or Facebook. The site also allows your children to track their progress and see how much has been raised by their classroom and the school overall.
If you participated last year, your username and password should still work, but you will need to update your child's information (grade, teacher name, photo, etc.)
What if people want donate by cash or check?
That's great. Just drop off cash/check or mail check donations to J.J. Hill Attention JJ Hill PTO. We'll pick them up regularly and enter them into the system so they get counted toward the goal. Make sure to indicate the student's name along with the donation so your child and their teacher get credit!
