One of the biggest fundraising events at local schools is the school jog-a-ton. Students bring in pledges for the laps they run or walk. Memorial and Wascher elementary schools have both wrapped up their fall fun run fundraisers.
At Memorial, more than 500 students ran and walked 10,424 laps, which is equal to 1,303 miles. Family members and teachers also ran and walked for a total of 13,152 laps or 1,644 miles. The new Memorial Bulldogs mascot helped cheer on the runners.
