photo of students warming up for a Jog-a-Thon held by St. Pius X Catholic School in Appleton
JOG-A-THON WARMUPS: In keeping with the school's healthy kids campaign, St. Pius X Catholic School in Appleton held a Jog-a-Thon Sept. 26. The event is the school's only fund-raiser for the year. Students gathered pledges in the form of a flat donation or a per-lap dollar amount. Area businesses donated prizes, including bowling birthday parties, pizza parties and gift certificates. The event was a runaway success, with $25,000 in pledges and donations raised by the school's 300 students. In above photo, students - including first graders Khailie Pack, Holly Stanislawski and Carolyn Popka - partake in warmup exercises before the jog-a-thon, which took place around the school grounds.
