Move-A-Thon (MAT)

JSIS Move-a-Thon Site

The 2013 Move-A-Thon was on Sunday, September 29th just east of Gasworks Park on the Burke-Gilman Trail. 

What is the Move-A-Thon?
The Move-A-Thon is both a celebration of motion and an old-fashioned fundraiser.  Kids get pledges from friends, family and neighbors based on either a flat amount, or the distance they anticipate traveling. 
 Then they bring their bikes, or scooters, or roller skates, or just their feet down to the Burke-Gilman Trail (between Bagley and Latona Ave NE) and MOVE! 
Participants will receive their “Trail Card" to document the distance they travel. They will also receive their Move-A-Thon T-shirt when they sign in.  What time to start, how long to stay, and how far to travel is up to you and them.  Adults supervise the event for safety.

More information can be found on the (external) MAT event website!

Move-a-Thon T-Shirt Spirit Days

Show your Move-a-Thon colors on Move-a-Thon Spirit Days typically the the friday before the Move-A-Thon! Wear your favorite Move-a-Thon shirt from previous years and show everyone you're getting ready for this year's event. Got any pledges lined up? Pumped up the tires in your bike or laced up your walking shoes? Kindergarten students--wear something colorful to join in the fun!

If you haven't volunteered before, the MAT is a great event to get your feet wet.  
See the Move-A-Thon Volunteer Page for more details.
