Walk-a-thon 2What a fantastic day for the first annual East Oakview Walk-A-Thon! The kids, staff, volunteers and supporters had so much fun.  While it was a chilly day, the rain stayed away and the sun couldn’t help but shine down for a little while on the rainbow of children that were running, walking, skipping and dancing around the track at Northview High School!

Targeted to be the East Oakview PTC’s main fundraiser for the year, over $12,000 was raised.  The donations collected as of Friday, October 16 totaled $11,350.25!  It is not too late to turn in your donations – please send them in this week so we can update this total!

Special thanks to VanAndel & Flikkema for bringing the Chrysler Drive for the Kids fundraiser to the walk-a-thon!  This helped raise an extra $1,130 for East Oakview.  Thank you to everyone who took the time to take a quick test drive and further support this event! CD4K East Oakview 101615 021

This entire event illustrates what can happen when a community comes together to support its children.  It truly does take a village to raise a child and the Northview community should be proud of this amazing accomplishment.  The PTC has a lot of work ahead to stretch every dollar to its fullest potential, providing the best benefit possible to the East Oakview students, families, teachers and staff!

Thank you to the East Oakview Elementary Community for such a successful event!
