ONE WEEK AWAY!
Walk with Grace,
Grace Lutheran School’s annual walk-a-thon fundraiser is
We are still a ways off of our $25,000 goal, but one week is still a lot of time! Once you sign up for Pledgestar and enter the emails of your family and friends, the system does the rest of the work for you! We are in the home stretch, let's meet our goal for our wonderful school and the amazing Ronald McDonald House Charities.
One goal is to have 100% of our students receive at least one pledge of $25. We have never made this goal.
Will you help us achieve it this year?
All of the information you need can be found on our school home page.
