Going the extra MILES

Going the extra MILES

Gaston Christian School will be holding a Jog – A – Thon on Wednesday, April 5, to raise funds for the construction of our Track. As the Athletic Director, I know how important this is not only for our Track team, but for all our athletes to train on, P.E. classes, Girls on the Run, and for the overall GCS campus development. That is why along with our track coach, Jason Moore, I will be running a Marathon for the Jog – A – Thon. To help me to reach my goal of $5,000.00 I am asking you to make a one time  donation or pledge an amount per lap that I run during the Marathon (26.2 miles /104 laps).

You can use the following link to make your pledge:

Tom Hawxwell – https://99pledges.com/fund/gcsjogatho/thomas-hawxwell

Jason Moore – https://99pledges.com/fund/gcsjogatho/jason-moore

Donations can be made online at the above link, or given directly to the business office.

Please feel free to forward this e-mail to friends and family that may be interested in supporting me during this Marathon.

Thank you in advance for your support of Coach Moore and myself as we take on this challenge.

In Christ,

Tom Hawxwell

GCS Jog-A-Thon on APRIL 5

GCS Jog-A-Thon on APRIL 5

Dear GCS Family and Friends,

Gaston Christian School continues to grow and provide opportunities for our students. We couldn’t do this without the partnership and support we have with our generous families.

The GCS Booster Club, along with a number of our school families has committed to building an eight-lane track. We have just completed the first phase with the asphalt paving as the track base. The next step is to install a rubberized surface on top of the asphalt. This will provide a state of the art surface to be enjoyed by our athletic teams, P.E. classes, Girls on the Run, and all GCS families looking for a place to exercise.

The progress that GCS has made over the past several years to build and develop a strong athletic department keeps us more determined than ever to see this project come to completion. Please join our school family on Wednesday, April 5 for a Jog-A-Thon. Our goal is to raise $50,000 to complete this project. If you are unable to attend, I hope that you will consider sponsoring this effort. Your donation goes directly to fund the completion of the track. All checks should be made payable to Gaston Christian School or you can donate online by visiting https://99pledges.com/fund/gcsjogatho

Thank you in advance for your support to fund the GCS track. Each step we take brings us closer to our goal.

Dr. Marc Stout – Head of School
