Why Jog-A-Thon?

Aside from supporting continued efforts to provide excellence in education through students’ year-round enrichment programs (e.g., Math and Reading curriculum, Running Club, STEM Enrichment Programs, music and drama presentations, and more!), our annual Jog-A-Thon is both fun and an opportunity for every student to get involved, to show their school spirit and pride.


Student sponsorship donations this year will be done through a new to us platform called PledgeStar. Signing up for an account and requesting donations is super user friendly, just follow the below instructions.

  1. To make a PledgeStar account for your family, go to — we ask that you hold off on creating a PledgeStar account until April 3, 2023. We will update this site with instructions then.
  2. Click “Not Registered for this event?”
  3. Create a family account by entering a parent/guardian name and email address and choosing a password and prefered language.
  4. Follow the step by step instructions to enter your Tiger(s) as joggers.
  5. Personalize the pledge request letter.
  6. Add family and friends contact information.
  7. Share your donation request via text, email or on social media! 

For anyone who would like to make a general donation to the school (e.g., a member of the Sandburg community), feel free to use our general PayPal donation page.

Spirit Days

Please note that the Tuesdays and Thursdays leading up to Jog-A-Thon are Spirit Days. Tuesdays are blue and yellow day, so wear your blue and yellow colors to show your spirit. Thursdays are themed dress-up days (TBD). Remember to wear your Jog-A-Thon wristbands, too!

Warm-up Dance

Students will begin learning this year’s Jog-A-Thon warm-up dance by following along with a video, we will share the link here when it is available. Be sure to have fun with the dance, and practice at home. A special thank you goes out to Mira Mesa High School Dance Team who so generously choreographed and filmed this year’s dance!



We have a lot in store for you and we are looking forward to working together to make this year’s Jog-A-Thon the best one yet. We hope to have everyone participate, which is why it is important to have every student’s waiver form signed prior to Jog-A-Thon. Please visit to complete your student’s form. If your student’s name is no longer showing in the drop down, that means we already have received a signed waiver for them.


5th grader designs have been received and a winner has been chosen! Now, the wait. The winning design will be revealed the Day Of Jog-A-Thon when everyone receives their Jog-A-Thon T-shirt. Stay tuned!
