Students, get your walking shoes ready!

Vannoy's Annual Walk-a-thon is Returning!

Friday, May, 12th 2023

Vannoy Elementary's Cougarthon is an annual event

that allows our school community to come together

for an afternoon of walking, prizes and fun,

all in an effort to raise funds for our wonderful school! 


The Cougarthon was last held in Spring 2019. Although it will not yet resemble past Cougarthon's we know everyone will have a blast!

​At the Cougarthon, students walk or run around the track. The students collect pledges per lap or in lump sum donations using 99pledges. All students will receive their pledge page via their parent/guardian's email. Various prizes will be offered! See the prizes page for details!

Your student's 99Pledges page can be searched for here: 

This is Vannoy's largest fundraising effort of the year and

we greatly appreciate the continued support we receive from our community!

​Funds raised from the Cougarthon are used by the Vannoy Parent Club to provide

campus and classroom support, field trips, community events,

educational programs, and technology!
