Walk-A-Thon

We need your support—let’s get moving!

Our school is having a healthy and educational fundraiser, our third annual Walk-a-Thon, which all students can participate in.

The Walk-a-Thon is a key fundraiser that supports our PTA programs. The Franklin PTA enriches the school by funding field trips, media center improvements, school-wide special events, reading and math intervention, classroom supplies, and more.  We rely on fundraising to make this happen.

We want to promote a healthy lifestyle for our students and the Franklin community.  Please help us reach our fundraising goals by supporting our Walk-a-thon!

  • We have teamed up with The Get Movin’ Crew© to make this event fun and profitable.  The website makes it easy to solicit donations.
  • Help your child raise $100 (or more!) to help us reach our school goal of $30,000!  
  • It’s not as hard as it sounds!  You can work with your child to gather five $20 donations, or ten $10 donations, or more.   

Follow these simple steps to start fundraising!

  1. Register your child for our event by visiting www.TheGetMovinCrew.com.  Look for the “Get Registered Parent Login” star at the bottom right corner of the page.  
  2. Once registered, use your child’s fundraising webpage to promote online donations using the email and social media tools on the website.  Friends and family want to help your child be successful and share in their achievements!
  3. Solicit donations and watch your child’s Pledge Meter blast off!  Most credit/debit cards are accepted online.  Check your child’s fundraising webpage often to see his or her progress in reaching our goals.
  4. While our individual student goal is $100, your child can reach Pledge Superstar status by going above and beyond and raising $500!  

If you have questions or need assistance using with the fundraising website, please contact:  walkathon@franklinpta.org.
