Donations can be made using your student’s Jog-A-Thon form or using the DONATION button above. When donating via PayPal – on the checkout confirmation page – please note the name of the child you are sponsoring.
HOW IT WORKS Students will ask people to sponsor them for a set amount of money per lap or make a single donation. Then, during their grade’s time period, each student will run, walk or jog around Gemini’s soccer field as many times that he or she can! The maximum number of laps permitted is 50.
