Jogathon 2024: Color Run is Wednesday, March 20!

We are using Pledgestar to collect all of our Jogathon donations. This web based fundraising platform allows for secure credit card donations online and makes it easy to request pledges from family and friends.

To register your student and to donate, please follow the steps below:

1) Go to

2) Select "Not registered for this event?" (Even if you have used Pledgestar in the past, you still need to start here).

3) Enter in Parent info here to create an account and click submit.

4) Once you have created a parent account, you can now add your students as "joggers" (all Turtle Rock students in your family).

5) Scroll all the way down to "Add Family & Friends + Track Donations" and add yourself again (the parent) and your email (or phone) as a donor. You will then see the "Donate Now" option.

6) You may also add in family and friends and send donation requests to them via email or social media. 

Jogathon is an annual event at Turtle Rock that is both a memorable and fun day for all of our students and the largest PTA fundraiser of the year. Parents will be invited to come watch their students run and participate in the color blast experience. All students will receive PTA provided sunglasses to wear for this special event.

Based on each individual student's donation levels:

$100+ Pizza Party, $200+ Craft Party, $300+ Game Truck

The Highest Donor Prize will also receive priority parking for Turtle Rock events thru 2024 (back to school, graduation, open house, movie night, fall festival).

If you are willing to donate any new toys, gift cards, or other items or experiences personally or through your business for the Jogathon raffle, please contact



  • Can I send in a check for my donation? Yes, checks can be turned in to the front office or to your student’s teacher. Please make sure to still register on Pledgestar and add your student as a jogger. This makes it so that we can track your donation and make sure your student receives the correct donation prizes. 
  • Can I register for Pledgestar on my phone? Yes! If the website is not working on your phone, you can try downloading the mobile app (Android or Apple). Once on the app, you enter “turtlerock” as the event code. Then follow the on screen instructions for how to register. 
  • Can I still sign up to volunteer if my classroom slots are full? Yes! See Volunteer Signups below. We can always use more help!
  • What if my student is absent on the day of the Pizza Party, Craft Party, or Game Truck? Please note that if your child is absent on the day of the experience, it will not be possible for us to offer an alternate date. We will communicate the dates of these experiences once the schedules are finalized.
