Get Active with JA
We've gone virtual - it's time to swap out your bowling shoes for your running shoes!
As you may know, our JA Bowling Classic couldn't move forward as planned given the world health crisis. However, now more than ever, we are reminded of the importance of staying healthy both emotionally and physically.
We invite you to participate in a brand new JA virtual fundraising event: Get Active With JA! Safely run, walk, bike, or even walk your dog and track your steps toward a desired goal! Ask your network, friends, and family to sponsor your activity with a donation to Junior Achievement of Washington! Get some fresh air, enjoy the sunshine, and safely show your support for our mission of empowering students to achieve stronger futures.
How to participate:
Register: Simply click on the registration button that pertains to you below. Once registered, your confirmation email will include a link to your Get Active With JA bib (also found below).
Fundraise: With a personalized webpage that you can link to, ask friends and family to help support you in this event with a monetary donation to JA. We encourage you to raise a minimum of $200, but any amount goes a long way! Ask others to join you!
Get Active: Run, walk, or bike any time between July 26 - August 2. (The suggested run or walk distance is 3 miles. Biking is 12 miles.) Use your favorite fitness app or the tracker on your smartphone and send a screenshot to email@example.com. Go a step further and show your JA love by taking a selfie and sharing on social media, making sure you tag us, including the hashtags: #JAWA #letsachievetogether
Win Great Prizes: Based on the amount you fundraise, you'll have the opportunity to win great prizes!
