Dear Friends and Family - 

I am a student at Central Elementary School in Longmont.  I am a [INSERT GRADE] grader in [INSERT TEACHER]'s class. On October 1st, our school will be having it's primary fundraiser, the Jog-a-thon, where I will be challenged to run as many laps as I can.  This event helps to promote physical fitness while also creating a fun way to raise money for Central, and this year, for our community as well.

Last year I ran [INSERT LAPS] laps.  This year I hope to run [INSERT LAPS] laps.

Money raised from this event will also help fund our International Baccalaureate Programsupport educational enrichment programs for students, fund special school-related requests from teachers and staff, and support community building activities at our school.  

If you would like to make a per-lap donation, please let me know the amount you would like to pledge and I will get back to you following the event with the total amount owed. 

This year we are also collecting donations online.  This is a quick and easy way to show your support for Central Elementary School.  
If you would like to mail a check, I will need to turn in my donations by Monday, October 13th.  If you would like to donate online, the deadline is Friday, October 10th.

The Central PTO is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit organization. Our Tax ID is #84-1334012.  Contributions to this organization are tax deductible.  

I hope you will be able to support me, Central Elementary and our community.  I really appreciate your help!

Sincerely,
[STUDENT'S NAME]
