Walk-a-thon logoWhat is a Walk-a-thon? 
The Emge Walk-a-thon will be our largest fundraiser of the year. Last year we raised over $30,000!  We are hoping this year to raise another $20,000! Participants earn money by walking laps during their grade-level time on Wednesday, October 3.  Participants will have 20 minutes to walk as many laps as possible. Participants get pledges from family, friends, neighbors or businesses to support their efforts.

How Do I Get Pledges? 
For our Walk for Emge this year, we're using an awesome website that makes it much easier for you to request pledges from your family and friends, and for them to make secure credit card donations online. It's fun, it's easy, and people who use it typically raise twice as much as those who don't!

Sign up and make online pledges here: http://pledgestar.com/emge

Why are we raising money?
Your support allows the PTO to continue to fund many of the great programs and events at our school. This year we plan on using any funds raised to: 
● Provide two large sunshades over the outdoor classroom ($11,000)
● Build a covered dry erase board for the outdoor classroom.
● Create a sensory garden in the outdoor classroom.
● Update iPad technology in classrooms. 
● Provide teachers with money to enhance their instruction and classroom environment.
● Fund the many PTO events throughout the year.
● Continue funding various subscription services and other annual fees for the Emge community.

We also need parents to help volunteer to make this event run smoothly. Please see our volunteer sign-up site at: ​
