What is a Jogathon?

Simple! A jogathon is a way for Macarthur's P.E. to gain money so that necessary supplies can be bought. Without a jogathon, balls, nets, or other necessary equipment can't be bought. Every P.E. equipment must be bought with MONEY! Thus, the jogathon was created. In the jogathon fundraiser, a student first collects sponsors. The student must run laps. For each lap completed, an amount of money pledged by the sponsor is due. So a sponsor pledged $1 per lap and the student completed 20 laps, $20 is due. However, a sponsor doesn't have to make a pledge that way. A sponsor can just give a donation, no matter how much laps is completed.
