3/13/18: The Jogathon has been postponed to April 18th due to the weather conditions. This will give us an additional month to earn pledges! Additionally, for any families that earned the Woodbury picnic blankets, there was unfortunately a manufacturing error on the company's part. Blankets will be collected and NEW ones will be redistributed to families after break. 

3/12/18: We have moved down to 11th place (previously in 8th place). The first place class currently has over $3200! Let’s keep our donations and pledges coming in! The children enjoyed their Krispy Kreme donuts today and children who have collected over $85 received their custom Woodbury Elementary picnic blankets. Children who have collected over $35 will receive their custom Woodbury pins too, but they haven’t delivered to the school just yet. There’s still time to continue collecting!

3/7/18: Thank you to the eleven families who have donated to our Jogathon Pledges so far! Thanks to you, we have achieved the $1000 mark and have earned our Krispy Kreme donuts! The first place class currently has over $2500! Maybe we can match the top earning classes!
