Thank you for all who participated and donated to our annual Run/Walk-a-Thon fundraiser. Congratulations to LCB for raising the most funds and winning a pizza party! The GWES PTA uses the funds collected from the Run/Walk (our biggest yearly fundraiser!) and other smaller fundraisers throughout the year to provide programs to enrich the educational experience for all Washington students. Thank you for your support!
What is Run/Walk-a-thon?
Run/walk-a-thon is the GWES PTA's largest annual fundraiser. Washington Elementary has a long-standing policy of "no door-to-door selling" for fundraising. That means we won't ask you to sell candles, cookies, wrapping paper, etc. Instead, our tradition is for students to ask family members and friends to sponsor them in a healthy, physical, and fun activity to raise funds for their school! There are two easy ways to sponsor. The first is to pledge a certain amount, for example $0.25, per lap the student completes. The second is to just give a lump donation amount, no matter how many laps the student completes. The Run/Walk-a-Thon takes place in the fall of every school year.
