I love the jog-a-thon idea. Our K-5 school in the Bronx tried one for the first time last year. Not only was it a great financial success, but it was a way for us to raise money without forcing families and friends to buy overpriced peanut clusters that (a) they don't want, and (b) the school gets only a percentage of the "donations." All of this while giving kids, school staff and families some much-needed exercise.
Needless to say, we are planning another event for this year--this time enhanced by some of your suggestions including $$ for shout-outs and sponsorships from local businesses.
