On Friday, May 3rd, 2019 our OLG students were “Running in the Light…” as a part of our last big fundraiser of the school year!
Last May we raised over $25,000! All pledges are 100% tax deductible and go directly to help support the programs of OLG School. Pledges are due the morning of the Jog-A-Thon. This year our Jog-a-Thon is scheduled for Friday, May 1st, 2020!
IMPORTANT DATES for 2020 Jog-A-Thon:
Thursday, April 3 – Kickoff & Pledge forms come home (1 per child)
April 3 – May 1 GET PLEDGES!
Friday, May 1 – Pledge forms due by 9 a.m…. No form = No prize
