Walk A Thon Go! Thursday September 22nd



We had a great day at Big Shanty yesterday with our partners from Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. The Strong for Life Team reinforced the importance of drinking water, making half your plate fruits and veggies, limiting your screen time and getting 60 minutes of play per day!  They were here to help up encourage our kids for their testing and to kick off our Walk A Thon! The Walk A Thon will be held on the Thursday, Sept 22nd (that is the day before fall break!)

This year each child will have their own online donation page at:  We are looking for $25 Business Sponsors… Contact Megan Davis or Mary Mitchelson. Additionally, many larger companies will do a matching sponsorship. If your company will do a match, contact Cris and she will get you the 501c3 paperwork and make sure your child gets that donation counted towards their fundraising.

We have lots of great prizes for the kids:

When you get your first donation, of any amount you will get a Big Shanty Bracelet… all the other prizes are listed on the website, so we won’t bore you with those here!

Our Goal is $100 for each student.

The Top two 3rd graders are going to get a new bike (donated by Georgia Elite Realty – Tammy Wilson and Kristina Bouterse)

The Top two 4th graders are going to get a new Fit Bit (donated by WHI @ Eaton Chiropractic – Dr Cris Welsh)

The Top two 5th graders are going to get a new Kindle Fire (donated by Lee Brooks Attorney at Law)

The Class that raises the most in donations will go in a limo ride (donated by Winkenhoffer) with Dr Luscre, their teacher and the top 5 fundraisers to have lunch at Gabriel’s.

And last but not least, if we get donations from ALL 50 states Dr Luscre and Mrs. Yates will dress up like your favorite Pokemon GO! Character and ride PokeBalls down the hall!
