The Tenth Annual Lily B. Clayton Walkathon Friday, October 12th, 2018
Walkathon is a wonderful event where the entire school walks, sings, and shows great school spirit while winding a 1.5-mile loop through the Lily B. neighborhood. This event is our BIG FALL FUNDRAISER, and from September 24 through October 5, students will ask neighbors, relatives, and their parents’ co-workers, among others, for donations. Our goal each year is to raise enough money to fund all the great things we always do (art & music programs, new technology, academic materials...).
Last year was a record-breaking year, as students raised over to $41,000 in donations! The best part is that the PTA gets to spend every bit of it on the school — there are no checks to send to a fundraising organization!
We are commited to a totally GREEN walkathon. Children will be given recyclable water bottles and recyclable paper packets.
For parents and students only! Check out the Donation Toolkit for...

Walkathon Donation Drive
Thank you for supporting our school! Donations will be credited to the students that you enter on the payment page.
We also ask parents and the community to consider sponsoring Walkathon.
The sponsorship levels are:
Gold Shoe: $500+
Silver Shoe: $250-$499
Bronze Shoe: $100-$249
To celebrate the success of Walkathon, the PTA will hold Family Spirit Night on the evening of Walkathon from 6-8pm. Family Spirit Night is free, dinner is provided, and most importantly there are lots of wonderful carnival-themed activities kids and parents love! In the past, favorites have included face painting, confetti eggs, bounce houses, an outdoor movie, and sports challenges.
