Our Fundraising Activities
Annual Walk-a-Thon

The Walk-a-Thon is the AAC’s main fundraiser for classroom supplies; grants to every grade, specials, and special education; STEM items such as ChromeBooks, SmartBoards, and other equipment essential for successful  learning.

AAC is  accepting our 20th Anniversary Walk-a-Thon entries. Flyers went home with students, and may be accessed here.  The 2021-2022 "Taking It Back" Walk-a-Thon was a blast! We blew past last year's amount raised and the donations are still coming in. We've raised over $7,500 thanks to the generous support of the Garvy community.  Save the date: 20th Anniversary Walk-a-Thon May 12, 2023.
