Walnut Acres 3rd Annual Walk-A-Thon is scheduled for the Spring of 2019!

Fundraise:  April 8-19
Walk: Friday, April 19, 8:30am-12:30pm

Our goal is to raise money for the Walnut Acres PFC to fund classroom aides, learning labs and technology, art and music instruction, and other elementary essentials for this current school year

Facts About Fundraising

From April 8th to 19th, students ask friends and family to sponsor their efforts with a flat fee for walking or jogging laps at the Walk-A-Thon on Friday, April 19th. Donations can be made online at 99pledges, or by check. This is a flat donation event, not per lap. Donations are tax deductible.

Here’s Where Your Fundraising Dollars Go.
All proceeds will help fund this year’s classroom aides, learning labs and technology, art and music instruction, and other elementary essentials. All contributions are tax-deductible. 

Your Sponsors can Donate Online with 99Pledges. You will receive an email from 99Pledges for each student, with a link to their personal student online fundraising page. This page can be posted to Facebook, or forwarded by email to friends and family.

Your Sponsors can Write a Check. Complete the Check Donation form that was sent home, attach your check payments, and return them to the Walk-A-Thon box in the school office. Please turn in your check donations by Friday, April 19th to be eligible for the prize raffle(s).
