"Go For The Gold" Walkathon
September 30, 2016

The Graham PTA is hosting our annual fundraising event, the "Go For The Gold" Walkathon. Walkathon is a fun event that students look forward to participating in every year. It is our main fundraiser for the year—100% of the funds raised through Walkathon go back to Graham School and your students. Classroom parties, the Accelerated Reader Program, STEM Science Fair, and many more events and programs are sponsored by the Graham PTA. Walkathon Donations make these programs possible.

Our goal is to raise at least $9,200 this year to support PTA programming. We would love to have 100% of all students participate in our fundraising efforts. Any donation amount is welcome!
