10/22: Jog-a-thon
Posted 9/27/21

Mark your calendars! DCES Jog-a-thon is coming up on Oct. 22, 2021. 

What is Jog a thon?

Jogathon is Dennis Chavez Elementary’s LARGEST fundraiser! In the past, funds from this event have been used to fund supplemental curriculums, updated technology, resources for our STEAM lab, teacher allotments for classroom needs, and other valuable student programs at Dennis Chavez Elementary. It is a fun, healthy fundraiser where participants jog or walk as many laps as they can in 20 minutes and raise money to support our school. Donations are collected anytime from now until Friday, October 29th for prize consideration.


How can you get your child ready now?

We use an awesome web based fundraising system that makes it easy for you to request donations from your family and friends. It's fun and it's easy! When you finish, the system automatically emails donation requests to your uploaded contacts. This allows them to make secure credit card donations online. You get notified each time a donation is made and you can track your donation progress online. You may also donate with cash or check (made out to DCESPTA). Please send your donations in a sealed envelope with the participants name and teacher labeled ‘DCESPTA-Jogathon’ to 7500 Barstow St. NE Albuquerque, NM 87109.


How can you help?

Get involved! You can come spend the morning helping with this event! We will need help counting and tallying laps, passing out water and popsicles, and so much more! You must be background checked through APS to volunteer for this event. Go to today to register! Volunteer sign-ups will be posted next week.


Sponsor a Runner!

You can help our Panther Community by making a donation at Funds will go towards students who do not have access to online fundraising and/ or the means to participate in this event. Become a Corporate Sponsor! The success of our Jog-a-thon would not be possible without the support of our local communities and businesses who graciously donate funds to provide these valuable opportunities and enjoyable prizes so that we can support our student participants in their fundraising efforts. Please see more flyer on reverse side.


Thank you in advance for your continued support of our Dennis Chavez Elementary Community!
