On Friday, September 28, 2018, Lindsey PTO will hold Laps 4 Lindsey – a
walk-a-thon and fundraiser to benefit Robert C. Lindsey Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). Our goal is to raise $15,000+ needed to support the programs and events we hold this year for the students. Lindsey PTO will realize 100% of the monies collected. In addition to the monetary benefit to our organization, the students will gain an awesome health benefit training for and participating in the Laps 4 Lindsey walk-a-thon.
RAISE MONEY — Students ask family and friends for donations to support their individual walk effort and their school. We are asking for a flat donation (e.g. not dollars per laps). All money is collected up front and recorded on the student donation envelope (attached). Back again this year, we are also accepting online donations. If each student collects a minimum of $40, we will reach our goal. Donation envelopes are due back to your child’s teacher from September 17th – September 28th. We will keep a running record and the top classroom will receive a special party. (All students will participate in the walk even if they do not collect donations).
R.C. Lindsey Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is a non-profit organization (501c3), therefore all donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
GET READY — Prior to the walk, our gym teachers, Mrs. Nicolosi and Mr. Perusek, are teaching a walk/run unit in gym class to prepare the students for Laps 4 Lindsey. They will discuss stretching techniques, pacing strategies and talk about proper walking attire.
WALK — On walk day, the students will participate in Laps 4 Lindsey by grade. Each grade will walk for an appropriate amount of time on a course set-up behind Lindsey school. There will be music playing and lots of volunteers to cheer the students on. We will have a friendly grade level competition and build school spirit. After the students finish their walk, they will be provided a bottle of water and an apple.
Following is the walk schedule:
K and 1st – 9:00 AM
2nd and 3rd – 9:45 AM
4th and 5th – 10:30 AM
(These times could fluctuate due to weather. We will do our best to adhere to them.)
Start collecting donations now! Please support Lindsey PTO and your child in this fun, fitness, and fundraising event. Parents are welcome to join their students at this event to cheer them on! We also need a few volunteers to set up the course on the soccer field, clean it up after, pass out bracelets and refreshments, sell shirts, etc. Please contact your room captain or me to volunteer.
Thank you for your support!
Goal of $15,000 – The class that raises the most money will get to make Mrs. Menta into a giant ice cream sundae at the all-school assembly!

Every student who raises $50 or more will have their name put into a basket and will have a chance to win a prize.
EVERY STUDENT will receive a Laps 4 Lindsey t-shirt to wear on the day of the walk thanks to our awesome corporate sponsors! Even if they do not collect donations, they still get a shirt and participate. Extra shirts are available for purchase. (To pre-order one for a parent or a younger sibling, please contact Andrea Milnar with size by September 12.)
This year, Lindsey PTO hopes to, once again, provide each of our students and faculty with a Laps 4 Lindsey t-shirt to wear the day of the walk and a post walk snack. The 400 t-shirts will cost approximately $3200. We are seeking donations to help defray the cost of the shirts. Our goal is to find six (6) $500 gold sponsors or thirteen (13) $250 silver sponsors (or any combination thereof).
