The Jog-A-Thon is one of the school's major PTA fundraiser. The fundraiser gives Gates students the opportunity to raise money for their school by collecting pledges and participating in a lap run for 20 minutes.
Pledges may be made per-lap or as a flat donation.
Ask your Grandparents, Neighbors and Friends to pledge for your education!

All grades will participate, from kindergarten through sixth, excitedly running laps on the field and high-fiving teachers and parents. Students are encouraged to wear gator green or gator spirit shirt and any Jog-A-thon wristbands earned! Students have the option to ask sponsors for an amount per lap or a one-time pledge. Before each grade’s run start PTA volunteers get the energy going, doing aerobic exercises to warm-up the kids before they run for approximately 20 minutes to upbeat pop music. Water will be provided. All visitors and volunteers must sign in at the front office.
