Congratulations to the kids of McGilvra for running 5,458 laps, equivalent to 989.82 miles or a relay from Seattle to San Francisco! We exceeded our $60,000 goal, and so the kids will have the Magician come present his magic at a special assembly on November 18th to say Thank You.

The Run-A-Thon is our largest kid-run fundraiser of the year. Money that our students raise from the Run-a-Thon is a considerable help in enabling the McGilvra PTA pay for key staff and programs that are not funded by the Seattle School District. These include IMG_8667our art program, school counselor, reading and math specialists, classroom tutors, and much more.

In this all-school fundraiser, students seek donations associated with their running effort. On the big day, they run laps around the McGilvra Playfield (K-1) or the school perimeter (2-5) with parents, teachers, and friends cheering them on. It’s a lot of fun!  
Our run-a-thon “P.O.O.F.” theme let’s our kids know that they can make magic happen with their actions!
