The walkathon is the elementary school’s biggest fund-raiser to support its PTA.

To meet this year’s goal of $30,000, each student was asked to raise $40 by seeking pledges from family and friends.

As of Tuesday, Oct. 18, the PTA raised nearly $28,000, with 80% of students participating in donations.
