Host a Hop, Hula, Yoga, or Pajam-A-Thon!

Join Your Local NJ Community in Helping People with Disabilities and Special Needs and Have Fun While Making a Difference!


Participating in an Easterseals Hop, Hula, Jump or Pajam-A-Thon fundraiser helps make a difference in the lives of people and families with disabilities while teaching children to understand, accept and embrace the characteristics that make us all special and unique. Since 2009, over 50 schools in NJ have participated in a fundraiser below, and continue year after year. We need your help to continue our mission!

Participate in an Easter-Seals-A-Thon! Which one is right for your class?

  • Hop-A-Thon
    Children will have the opportunity to hop on 1 or 2 feet for an entire minute (or however long you wish). Each child is decorated with a ‘bunny ears’ headband where the number of hops will be recorded. A Sponsor Form is sent home prior to the event for family members and friends to sponsor their child and pledge an amount per hop.

  • Hula-Hoop-A-Thon
    Family members and friends will pledge a set amount for how many continuous minutes the child will be able to hula-hoop in order to complete the event. Hula-hoops must be provided by the school.

  • Yog-A-Thon
    If your school offers a Yoga program for the kids, consider hosting a class as a fundraiser for people living with disabilities! Children can donate $3 to participate on your chosen day in an effort to raise funds for these individuals and families in your local community!

  • Pajam-A-Thon
    Children of all ages can enjoy a Pajama Day! Students and Staff would donate $2 to participate and the whole school can get involved.

You Choose the activity, you choose the date! For more information or to sign up to participate, please contact Nicole Grischuk, Engagement Manager, at 732.955.8368 or ngrischuk@nj.easterseals.com. Once an activity and date are scheduled, we will mail you a kit containing the necessary items to complete the fundraiser of your choice one (1) month prior to the event.
