Run-A-Thon Participants and Sponsors Raise Almost $8,000 for Abbot

The Run-A-Thon was a great success and was a lot of fun for so many Abbot families.  We had 141 registered participants this year who obtained a total of $6,973.75 in pledges (up from $6,243.56 last year). Great job! About $3,000 still needs to be collected and turned in to the office. Please do so by Monday, October 27.

We also celebrate the 28 participants who made the 100-Lap Club this year, up from 21 last year. In addition, 101 other students will be receiving a medallion or a trophy for completing the designated lap levels for their grade. Great job doing your part to support Abbot and accomplishing so many individual goals!  The Run-A-Thon Award Ceremony will be held on Friday, November 14 at 2:30 p.m. Parents attending are reminded to please sign in as visitors in the office first.

This year, the Run-A-Thon also raised $2,250 in event sponsorships from local businesses. Thank you Cardamom, Chelsea Rhone, McNamara Orthodontics, Dr. Robert Stevenson, DDS, and Taxi Cab Kids!

After expenses (tent rental, runner awards, event banner for sponsor publicity) and concessions profits the total profit for the PTO from the event was $7,944.48!  That is fantastic and provides a the largest single source of the PTO's funding for this year's activities.
