Jaguar Jog Milwaukee

MAM Fam, it’s time to shake off the winter chill and stretch into spring! Join us for our first-ever Jaguar Jog: 5K Run, 1-Mile Lower El Run, and 1-Mile Family Walk. To be held this May, this virtual run/walk is a safe opportunity to get outdoors for some exercise, compete for prizes, take home an exclusive MAM T-shirt, and show your school pride.

The cost to participate is $25 per participant, with a max of $100/per family. If, for any reason, you feel that you cannot afford the registration fee, please use coupon code JOG4FREE for completely free entry. You will still receive the T-shirt and be eligible for all prizes, and your use of the coupon code is anonymous.

All proceeds will benefit the MAM Fund, which supports school enrichment programming and teacher classroom funds, and spearheads special projects such as the creation and maintenance of the rain garden and new playground.

Our Goal

This year, the Fund set the goal of raising $33,000 to sustain current programming. Through your generous support of the Fall Giving Campaign, we raised $23,915, leaving us just ~$9,000 shy of our goal. Through the Jaguar Jog, we hope to bridge the gap and hit our target. We’re setting the challenge of raising $10,000 with this event. Follow our progress via our fundraising tracker on the Donate/Pledge tab.


Pledges for MAM

We encourage you to click “Become a Fundraiser” in the menu to create a fundraising page for your student. It takes only a minute to create the page, share it on social media, and e-mail the link to help get pledges from your friends and extended family. Getting pledges for your student’s participation is a great way to raise money for important programming and projects at our school.


Participation

So, how exactly does this work? This year, the Jaguar Jog is virtual, but we hope to hold the event in person in the future. You can complete the run/walk anywhere and anytime between May 1st – May 22nd. Where to go? The MAM school area is a runner’s and walker’s paradise. From the lakefront to the Urban Ecology Center, you’ve got lots of options. We’ve even suggested a few routes for you (click the link in the menu). You can report your completion time here on RunSignup before May 22nd. Winners will be announced and prizes distributed shortly after the event window closes on May 22nd.


You must register by April 22nd to receive T-shirt(s). Please specify your t-shirt sizes during checkout. T-shirts will be distributed the first week in May.  Registration will still remain open after April 22nd without the T-shirt option.


There are multiple ways you can participate:


1-Mile Family Walk

Ditch the winter blues and drink in the fresh spring air on a 1-mile walk with the family. Open to everyone and ideal for our littlest jaguar cubs, this fun walk encourages wagons, strollers, scooters, however you want to move! In addition to receiving the exclusive Jaguar Jog t-shirt, two randomly-selected families will win a gift card to Stone Creek Coffee.
