Alki-A-Thon Pledge Packets – Coming home next week!

Pledge packets will be coming home in kid mail Wednesday, May 11th.   You can collect pledges with cash or checks, or make our treasurer really happy by setting up a personal pledge page at:  Online pledges or donations can be made safely and securely using paypal, credit or debit cards. Your pledge packet will have full details and simple instructions. The packet will also include more information on how the Alki-A-Thon is run and what to expect that day.  New this year:  We have the opportunity to partner with other schools in our West Seattle community to help them raise funds for their PTA programs.  Your pledge packet will have full details.  Contact Susan Gates ( or Jessie Ryan ( if you have any questions.


The Alki-A-Thon can’t happen without our awesome volunteers!  You can volunteer for 30 minutes or for the whole day and there is a huge range of options to fit just about anybody’s schedule.  Please click here and sign up early to have the most options!  Examples – set up the running course on the field, bring a class treat, cut up oranges, or help your student’s teacher get kids out onto the course.  For any questions on volunteering, please contact Julie Madden,

Each grade will have a canopy tent (ideally 10×10) as a meeting place and place to rest for the kids.  If you have one of these types of tents and would be willing to lend it for the day, please sign up here or contact Julie Madden.   We also need volunteers dedicated to getting these tents set up after drop off.  Tents would need to be delivered to the school prior to 10am.  We need a total of about 8 tents.

Thank you for making this a great event!
