Kids Helping Kids!

Mannford PTO is starting off the school year with an important cause and proudly sponsoring a "Kids Walk" for a Cure to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. During the first week of school, the students will be given an age appropriate presentation about juvenile diabetes either in their science or PE classes and then offered the chance to raise money for the foundation and participate in the walk. With an initial donation, students will be able to purchase a "shoe" that will be put on display in the schools, then for every quarter they donate to the fund, they will be able to add a star sticker to their shoe. Prizes will be awarded to students for those who raise the most for the foundation.


On the afternoon of August 22nd, after school at 3:30, there will be a walk at the high school track to support the student's fund raising efforts. We encourage everyone to come out and donate to this cause. We will have a tent set up with refreshments and for each student that raises $5 or more for the foundation, they will receive a FREE pass to PTO movie night! Parents will be sent permission slips home for students wanting to participate in the walk.
