Jared's Joggers is a new in-school fundraising program that encourages children to run to raise money for their schools' physical education programs. Join the movement! Become one of Jared's Joggers! Read More
Jared's Joggers is the signature fundraising program of the Jared Foundation. Since completing the ING NYC Marathon in 2010, Jared is on a mission to inspire children and adults to run for a greater purpose. That purpose is to raise money for in-school physical education programs. The Jared Foundation believes that, along with proper nutrition, teaching kids physical fitness at an early age will lead to healthier, happier lives.
Jared's Joggers has two fundraising components - In-School and 5K races.
Do you want to raise money for your school? Sign up for a Jared's Joggers event at your school and kids can raise money by running. Similar to other in-school fundraising programs, kids can get family and friends to sponsor them for the running event. This isn't a competition; the idea is to get kids having fun while running and raising money for their school. Click here for more information.
Are you planning to run a 5K this year? Maybe you can get some family and friends to run with you or sponsor you. As a Jared's Joggers Team Captain, you get to choose which school will receive a grant from the Jared Foundation. How great is that?
