Five hundred sixty students in kindergarten through eighth grade asked relatives, friends, neighbors and businesses to sponsor their efforts in the annual Jog-a-thon. The proceeds go directly into the school's Scholarship Fund which enables St. Patrick School to have the lowest parochial school tuition in Lake County.

The Jog-a-thon also promotes school spirit and gives the children an opportunity to contribute their energies to their school.

The morning began with Newport Township Fire Department's engine leading a parade of joggers around the campus parking lots. DJ Tony Gonzalez provided music throughout the morning for the students and staff. Many parents were on hand to serve hot dogs and snacks to the crowd.

The first Jog-a-thon in 1983 raised $18,000 for the school. This year's fundraiser drew in $32,000. In the past 29 years, the Jog-a-thon has raised over $800,000 total for St. Patrick School.

The best assessment of the day comes always from a kindergartner who proclaimed, "This is the funnest day of the whole year!"
