2017 Ericson Elementary Jog-A-Thon
EVENT DATE: Apr 28, 2017
DEADLINE TO GIVE: Apr 28, 2017
The annual Walk/Jog-A-Thon is the Foundation’s largest fundraiser. The fundraiser gives Ericson students the opportunity to raise money for their school by collecting pledges and participating in a lap walk/run for 20 minutes.
This year, our goal is to purchase a new mobile stage system for the MU in time for 5th grade promotion. The stage will cost between $16k and $19k. It will be modern in design, multi-functional and ADA compliant so all students can have access. This is not a frivolous item. Having served Ericson for over 44 years (we know this because one of our board members went to Ericson and walked on that stage!) the current wooden stage is unstable and desperately needs to be replaced with something more functional. For us to purchase the stage, continue providing in-classroom literacy programs, educational field-trip support, sports equipment and the after-school programs like MadScience and KidzTyme, we need your support this year more than ever before.
