Hey Cheetahs! Cheetahs celebrate Health & Fitness month in October with a healthy educational Fun Walk fundraiser! Last year we raised over $35,000 for our school with this fun and healthy event! We're hoping to top that in 2017-2018 with YOUR help!! Stay tuned for more information!

 

CHANDLER PTA “BIG GIVE” Fun Walk

A very important, fun, healthy way to raise money!

The Chandler PTA is raising money for everything that makes Chandler Learning Academy fun, educational and exciting for your children. Students will walk to some of their favorite songs as parents cheer their success! Our fundraiser is geared toward health and wellness so students are enriched with a fitness experience while aiming to raise the funds we need to support our school!

Ø It’s fast and easy!

Ø There are NO products to sell or deliver!

Ø 100% of the net proceeds go directly to benefit the students!

Ø We have cut the number of fundraising drives this year, so we are counting on your support to help raise what our students need!

Chandler PTA funds programs that benefit EVERY student at Chandler! But they can only continue with your support and help! Programs like: Teachers Assistants, P.E., field trips, S.T.E.M. assemblies and programs, garden program, technology, family engagement nights (math/science, art/music, literacy), classroom supplies, literary arts materials (Scholastic & Time for Kids), and more!

Please help us meet our budget needs by supporting our BIG GIVE Fun Walk!

All students are invited to participate in a Fun Walk on October 24th and will receive a Spirit Tag & # Sticker (even if no pledges are collected).

Between October 9 and October 20th, please help your child raise flat TAX DEDUCTIBLE donations, either online or using pledge sheets, in support of the Fun Walk. Our goal is 100% participation in any $ amount!!

Students who register online at thegetmovincrew.com, turn in pledges, or who meet certain goals will be eligible to earn additional rewards! See additional pages for details.

We teamed up with The Get Movin’ Crew© to make this event fun, easy and profitable.
