Help support the fundraiser! Be a Sponsor!
Sponsors receive an excellent advertising opportunity by having their logos prominently displayed on our Walk-A-Thon t-shirts (distributed to 750+ participants), the PTA website, and PTA email newsletters. In addition, sponsors will be recognized during the event.
Supporting our Walk-A-Thon is not only an investment in our school but also a chance for local businesses to reach a wide audience. For more details, please contact Jodi at email@example.com or download a sponsorship packet.
Stay tuned for more day-of-event information. We will need volunteers to help lead, organize, recruit, setup/take down, and count laps!
Help us reach our goal of $40,000! Donate here!

COMMUNITY SPONSORS - WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!
How can local business support the Walkathon?
The Clyde Hill Elementary Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) is a non-profit, volunteer organization dedicated to enhancing the educational experience for all students at Clyde Hill. We work to support our school by providing enrichment opportunities and building a strong school community which brings together parents, teachers, students, and local businesses such as yours.
Why We Need Your Support
At the state and district level, K-12 education continues to be underfunded. Clyde Hill has a current student population of 650 students, a 40% increase from last year. Our PTA works hard to close the gap and raise funds needed to help ensure critical resources and programs continue.
Our annual Walk-A-Thon is an important fundraising and community-building event where students run or walk laps to raise money for the school. This year’s event will be held on Friday, May 31st! Funds raised from this event help us to provide things such as:
Classroom aids to help reduce child/teacher ratios and provide personalized attention.
Curriculum Enhancements including science fair, educational software, books, and reading/math/ELL applications.
Community Events such as Trunk or Treat, Heritage Festival, all school Dance and more.
To ensure that these critical programs continue, we are asking for your help by becoming a sponsor. Please contact Jodi at firstname.lastname@example.org for a sponsorship packet.
Thank you for supporting each and every one of our students!
Let’s make tracks while raising money and building our community!
Why do we Walk-A-Thon?
Because it is FUN! Students, staff and families have a chance to get together for the good of our school!
This is the last chance to fundraise for the PTA Annual Fund so we can continue to provide classroom aides and programs not fully funded by the district or state.
The Envelope Drive in the fall is our anchor fundraising event; student and family participation is always great! But we have a long way to go to meet our budget needs for the 2023-24 school year.
With the BSD elementary school consolidations, Clyde Hill Elementary is slated to receive at least 150 students and five staff members from Wilburton Elementary.
Our dollars will need to stretch further to ensure every child at our school receives a quality education and is able to enjoy all of the elementary curriculum enhancement experiences!
How do we raise money?
Do you know a company that would like to sponsor our event? Please contact Jodi at email@example.com for a sponsorship packet and more information.
Every student is asked to set a fundraising goal of $100.
We will collect donations via our website.
Donations are not tied to laps walked – they are flat donations prior to event in support of the student/school.
