The event takes place Friday October 5th from 12:00 - 2:45 at McDonald International Playground.
Students will participate in three different heats:
12:00 - 12:45 Kindergarten
1:00 - 1:45 First Grade
2:00 - 2:45 Second, Third, Fourth and Fifth Grades
Dress appropriately for the weather; we will be walking rain or shine.
Parents - come support your kids while they walk! Or sign up to volunteer here.
Students will ask people to be “Sponsors.” Sponsorship can be a single, flat donation or a donation per lap completed. Your child will come home on the 5th with the number of laps he/she completed at the Move-a-Thon so you can calculate what your per-lap sponsors owe.
Sponsors may be friends, family, neighbors, and parents’ co-workers or business associates.
The money we raise goes to the PTA General Fund for this year and pays for
Our goal is to raise $60,000, which would pay for everything the PTA sponsors this year aside from the IA Fund which is a separate endeavor.
That comes to $250 per child - on average. But not every child will be able to raise $250, so if yours does, keep going!
We need to push that average up past $250 to meet our goal.
