Boys & Girls Club Fort Walton Beach Youth Center to Host Walk-A-Thon August 10th

07/31/2015 02:00PM ● Published by Nancy Babin

The Boys and Girls Club is having a Walk-A-Thon Fundraiser Monday, August 10th at Choctawhatchee High School, 110 Racetrack Rd., NW.  The Walk-A-Thon is a fun activity for Club members to promote fitness and healthy lifestyles, with all participants striving to achieve their personal best distance.  Club kids have set realistic lap goals based on age and development.  Our goal is to raise at least $2,000 during the event.  All event proceeds will be used for direct programming at the Fort Walton Beach Youth Center.

 

The Club will be at the Choctaw HS stadium from 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. and NASH FM 105.5 will be on site with music and fun.  Club kids will begin the walk-a-thon at 10:00 a.m. and will make as many laps as they can for one hour.

 

Boys & Girls Club is looking for sponsors to help raise funds for the Fort Walton Beach Club.  Whether you want to sponsor a student and pledge per mile, per lap, or give a single donation, contact the Boys and Girls Club of the Emerald Coast. Upon completion of the walk-a-thon, students will hand in their lap tags and staff will record each student's lap total on their pledge sheet. 

 

For more information or to get involved, contact Anthony Lanier, Fort Walton Youth Club Director, at 850-862-1332 or alanier@bgcec.com.
