INDY Walkathon


Our annual walk-a-thon is on October 19th and is the PTA's biggest fundraising event of the year. Students, parents, and faculty raise money for the school by collecting donations from family and friends while participating in a fun event on our campus that promotes school spirit and exercise! These funds help close the gap between the needs of our school and funding we receive from the district. This year, our goal is to raise $25,000!

These funds will be used to provide much needed recess equipment for all grades, storage facilities to store this equipment, and school track uniforms. Any remaining will be used to improve the education programs or facilities at Independent campus.

Rex Liu, an INDY parent, has put together this amazing website to organize the efforts: https://independent.walkstarter.org/

On this site, you can create your own portal to set your students’ goals and send to friends and family to assist with raising funds. We’re hoping for 100 participation. Check out the website to see how many of your child’s classmates have already created their portal!
