2011 Jog-a-Thon!

The second annual Jog-a-thon on Thursday, September 22, 2011 was a great success! The students, faculty & staff had a great time running through the school's neighborhood and seeing so much support from friends and family along the way. The best part of the run was running through the water stream from Eagle Mountain's Fire Station #2's brush truck. The firefighters had just as much fun spraying the students and the students did running through the water. Even Mrs. Smith ran through the water at the end of the day!

We want to give a special thanks to all of our sponsors. Without them, the jog-a-thon would never have been so successful. Many thanks go to the following:

26.2 Running Company
In Motion Dance
The Music Stop
Eagle Mountain City Youth Sports
The Legacy Center/span>
American Fork Target
Lehi Costco
The Ranches Golf Club
Epic Biking
Jack & Jill Bowling Lanes

We hope everyone will be involved to make this a great week!
