NJTP is calling all students and parents to participate in our annual bike/walk/run fundraiser! This is our biggest fundraiser of the year, and we are once again teaming up with St. Vincent Meals on Wheels to take part in their 20th annual Walk/Bike-A-Thon event in Santa Monica on April 26th, 2015.

As a nonprofit organization, NJTP relies on donations in order to pay for our coaches, tennis balls, equipment and other costs. So, this once-a-year fundraiser is crucial to our success. The money we raise during this event helps us offset our costs for the coming year, and allows us to offer discounts to many families who are unable to pay for classes due to the loss of a job, loss of their home or both.
A portion of your donations will also benefit the Meals on Wheels program, which delivers hot, nutritious meals to home-bound seniors every day.
Class Fee Discounts
If you raise $300 or more in donations to NJTP, we will cover your entry fee to the event, and you will also receive a discount on your NJTP class fees for one year (for one child or for yourself). The discount schedule is as follows:
- 30% off your class fees if you raise at least $300;
- 40% off if you raise at least $400; and
- 50% off for raising $500 or more.
It’s a great deal, and it’s supporting two great causes!
We are going to have three training events to help you prepare for the bike/walk/run event. See the Calendar page for dates/times and other details.
