Grant School Students Participate in 30th Annual Event

The Grant Jog-a-thon is in its 30th year. This fitness and fundraising event will be happening on Thursday March 14 from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Pioneer Park. Every child from Grant K-8 will be running as many laps around the park as they can in about 30 minutes.

It will be a festival atmosphere with DJ Mike on the microphone providing high-energy music for the runners. Vendors will be on site offering lunch and treats in the park.

The event is free to attend and everyone is encouraged to identify a Grant students to sponsor. All donations are tax deductible (Tax ID: 96-6204578). Students qualify for various wonderful fundraising prizes including Jog-a-thon t-shirts, aluminum water bottles and a fun evening party with inflatable slides, DJ and food and games.

Thanks to the generosity of Mission Hills and surrounding communities, this event raises over $20,000 every year to support Grant school and programs. Money raised this year will support the creation of a state-of-the-art video studio and editing lab on site at Grant school.

If you’d like to sponsor this year’s event and get exposure to the Mission Hills community, contact Eric Karpinski, Jog-a-thon Chair, at or 619-922-0006. Your company will be featured on banners and signs in front the school, through email blasts to school families and on hundreds of Jog-a-thon t-shirts.

Come join the fun on March 14th and support students at Grant K-8.
