Walk-A-Thon Fundraiser NOW OPEN! THIS IS OUR LARGEST FUNDRAISER OF THE SCHOOL YEAR. OUR GOAL FOR THIS EVENT IS $45,000. https://www.lctapta.org/walkathon-2022 When: Monday, October 31st, 2022 What: Each child will participate in the Walk-A-Thon (to the best of their ability) during their class designated Encore period. Each grade will have 45 minutes to complete as many laps as possible. It will take a few minutes to get everyone going and to get everyone back to class, so they will not be running/walking the entire 45 minutes…but they will have plenty of time to get in some good laps! This year, the Walk-A-Thon is being held on the Core Knowledge Book Character Dress-up Day. So that means the students will be running or walking in costume, if they choose to dress up. Please keep this in mind! Donating to the Participants Please consider donating towards our once a year fall fundraiser. We take cash, check, PayPal, Square, and Venmo. Feel free to circulate the above link to friends and family. To donate by Venmo (our preferred online payment method since there are no fees), please donate to @LCTAFundraisingEvents (phone number ending in 9252) or https://www.venmo.com/u/LCTAFundraisingEvents Each donor will receive a "thank you" email when a donation is made to a participant. At the conclusion of the fundraiser, parents/guardians will be notified with a list of all the donations made in the name of their child/ren. If you would like to see a list of donors who sponsored your child before the conclusion of the fundraiser, please email.
