Madden's Jog-a-Thon 2016

Last week Redeemer held it’s first ever Jog-a-thon.  We tried to explain it to Madden, but I really don’t think he understood what it was.  Finally I just told him not to worry and that his teachers would tell him exactly what to do.  I volunteered the day of the event to help tally laps for each kid in Madden’s classroom.  Madden’s class was asked to wear RED and Madden was stoked to be wearing his Spiderman shirt for the race.

Our class was the first group to race.  The kids were super stoked when they arrived to the field.

Ready, Set, Go! The kids were off and they didn't really stop running for the next 25 minutes. 

The field was pretty small so the kids were racing around it so quick.  We had to tell them to slow down, rest and drink water because they were all zipping around so fast and still had a full day of school ahead of them.   

In the end Madden did an awesome job by running 36 laps and raised a total of $440.00 for his school.  He had a ton of fun and asked if he was going to get to do the jog-a-thon the next day.
