EXTENDED: Olympathon Online Donations + Student Prizes Deadlines

Online Donation Deadline Extended

The Olympathon online donation site (thegetmovincrew.com) will be up through the weekend accepting online donation until Monday, October 10, at midnight. Checks and cash will still be accepted through October 20.

Students Eligible for Prizes Until October 11

Students can still earn prizes from online donations through Monday or checks/cash until Tuesday, October 11, at 8:30am. After we have entered all checks/cash donations on Tuesday morning at 8:30am, we will run final prize reports.

Tons of prizes have been given out, including scooters and a digital camera. There’s still more out there, so don’t give up!

Take the Olympathon Challenge

We are at about $27,000 of our $45,000 goal, and we need your help! We have issued a challenge to every student to find/secure just $10 more in new pledges over the weekend. If every student at Phillips brings in a new $10 donation, we will be close to our goal, which means pies to the faces of the Specials teachers!

Our students are super proud of mastering this course, and they had a great time! Check out and share this professionally produced video of highlights from the Olympathon. You can use it to gain those last few donations!
