The Lafayette Walk-a-thon is chock full of active happy kids (and some adults too!) who walk their way around a course on the playground at the school to raise money during this annual event.

Lafayette Elementary Walk-A-Thon happens tomorrow, Oct. 25

The PTA at Lafayette Elementary School is excited for our upcoming Walk-A-Thon. Our Walk-A-Thon is our primary PTA fundraising event and we hope to raise $60,000 for the PTA budget this year.

Everyone in our school community walks in our Walk-A-Thon - students, teachers, staff and parents. Each grade walks (or runs!) together for 30 minutes around a ¼ mile track. Students collect donations and pledges for the event, and then walk laps around the school playground. Sponsors donate fixed amount donations, or pledge to pay a certain amount per lap walked. The Lafayette Walk-A-Thon will be held this Friday, October 25.
