The Jog-a-thon was a Hit!
We can’t thank the Wilkes community enough for making the 2018 Jog-a-thon a huge success! We raised over $105,000, all of which will go directly back into the school. Funds raised help support important educational resources such as school enrichment programs and assemblies, field trips, teacher grants and professional development, STEM supplies and lab kits, library books, musical instruments, educational technology devices, Science Fair, Educulture/Farm education, Author Day- and much more! 100% of the funds stay at Wilkes.
Almost 90% of the students participated in the event, and we raised enough to unlock free yearbooks for everyone! We so appreciate the time that went into creating the costumes for each of the classrooms, collecting donations (globally!) and for donating your own money towards reaching our goal. We also want to give a special thank you to Honora Gerbeck who chaired the event, Wilkes staff for their extra support, and all of our great volunteers.
