To show our support and love for Lila, The Graham family is organizing a Walk-A-Thon and attached you will find a pledge form so that your students can ask for sponsorships so that when we get back, we can hold a schoolwide event to bring awareness to leukemia, bone marrow donor programs, and sweet Lila’s journey toward healing. Furniture World is also matching all donations up to $4K, so Lila is already the beneficiary of their generosity that will continue to grow as we all partner together to bless her. (**Please reach out to Simmie Graham if you have additional corporate sponsorship ideas, or if your business would like to offer a matching donation.)
Please let Simmie know if you have questions or ideas on how to make this a successful fundraiser, or if you would like to be more involved with the event. Her email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is the video to help inspire you to come alongside this precious little soul:
We are encouraging each student to ask family and friends…even neighbors, places of worship/service, businesses/corporations, or any other organizations, etc…to pledge an amount to pay them per mile they walk….and to follow up with collecting pledges once the event concludes in January. Alternatively, people can choose to give a one-time donation in lieu of the pledge per miles walked. We are working on setting up an account to make this streamlined so that if people want to pay electronically, they can do that as well…but this is still in the works. You will find the pledge form attached to the email from Mrs. Frederick.
Our plan is to clear the schedule of many of our classes on Wednesday, in early May, so that our student body can participate together at the Lower School campus. There will be prizes for the most miles walked in various age categories, as well as for the most pledges and/or donations. It will be a day of fellowship in our community…while also walking for a noble cause.
