Mountain Avenue Elementary School jog-a-thon by the numbers: 

-150 students 

-$24,500 raised for the school 

-10,345 laps 

Not bad. 

Funds will go to improving the computer laboratory and library, providing grade-level grants and upgrading technology and playgrounds. 

Students who raised $100 or more were invited to a special reception where 125 prizes were raffled off. 

Up for grabs: a Lakers backpack complete with an autographed photo of Kobe Bryant.
