Laps for Lindsey

Laps for Lindsey - September 23, 2022

Each year, Lindsey PTO holds Laps for Lindsey – a  fundraiser to benefit Robert C. Lindsey Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). Our goal is to raise $18,000 to support the programs and events held for students throughout the year. This is the only donation we will be asking for as the PTO has eliminated dues and classroom party donations this year. 

How it works

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. PTO has provided a sample letter/email that students can use to share fundraiser information and ask for donations. View and download the Laps for Lindsey informational letter

All donations will be made using Cheddar Up. Cheddar Up is a website that helps us organize information and collect money. You can share the link with family and friends. Cheddar Up will give you instructions on how to pay by cash, check or credit card. You will need the name of the student you are donating on behalf of when using the website. You can visit the Cheddar up site for our fundraiser at

If each student collects $40, we will reach our total goal. All donations are due by September 23.

GET READY – Prior to the walk, our gym teachers are teaching a walk/run unit in gym class to prepare the students for Laps for Lindsey. They will discuss stretching techniques, pacing strategies, and talk about proper walking attire.

WALK – On September 23, the students will participate in Laps for Lindsey. Each grade
level will walk or run as many laps as possible in the allotted amount of time. The schedule
is as follows:

3rd grade – 9:00AM                           4th grade – 9:40AM                           5th grade – 10:20AM

This year we are able to have spectators for the walk-a-thon. The PTO would love your help with course set up and handing out apples and water bottles. A volunteer sign up will also go out via email.
