The Mesa Challenge 2018  



The Jogathon has transformed into The Mesa Challenge. Throughout the past years we have reinvented our traditional "a-thon" to make it more fun and exciting for our students.  Instead of just running in circles, additional fitness activities have been introduced and fundraising goals set to "Challenge" our students, parents and staff. Questions?

New This Year! We present students with an "Email Challenge" to send out as many emails as they can.  You may share the link via Social Media also.  For every donation received from their email link, they will be entered into a weekly prize lottery.  Special incentives will be given out each week. 


Students must use a template that provides a special link to donate.  Just copy and past the insert and send to your grandpa/grandma, uncles/aunties, family, friends, coworkers, and acquaintances across the world!
