Lily B. Clayton would like to thank everyone who donated, volunteered, and supported the Walkathon!  We had a record breaking year by raising over $39,000 in donations!  The best part is the PTA gets to spend every bit of it on the school - there are no checks to send to a fundraising organization!  We appreciate the following sponsors who made this year’s Walkathon and Family Spirit Night a success:

Gold Shoe

Stephanie Dwight
The Larson Family
The Storm Family 

Silver Shoe

Veni, vidi, vici! Our annual Lily B. Clayton Walkathon was held on Friday, October 17th, 2014. The entire school walked and sang as we wound through the Lily B. neighborhood.  This event replaced Gift Wrap as our BIG FALL FUNDRAISER!!!!  Our goal was to raise enough money to fund all the great things we always do (art & music programs, new technology, academic materials...) and also add new technology this year.

Check out the Walkathon FAQ for more information or contact Walkathon chair Laurie McCoy walkathon@lilybclayton.org.

Walkathon Donation Drive


Thank you for supporting our school!  Donations will be credited to the students that you enter on the payment page.
 
This year we will be taking Sponsors for Walkathon. 
The sponsorship levels are:
Gold Shoe:  $500+
Silver Shoe:  $250-$499
Bronze Shoe:  $100-$249
 
Instead of having 2 fall fundraisers, Carnival is being replaced with a Family Spirit Night on the evening of Walkathon from 6-8pm.  This event will be free for all families and will celebrate our Walkathon day success.  It will include favorites from Carnival (face painting, confetti eggs, bounce houses...) as well as some new fun (outdoor movie, sports challenges,...).  We hope that if you sponsored Carnival in the past that you will consider becoming a Walkathon sponsor.
