Our 13th annual Friends of Blaine (FOB) Walk-A-Thon is being held on Thursday, October 20th. During this day-long fitness-focused fundraising event, lower grades will participate in an obstacle course and the upper grades will participate in fitness programs sponsored by Lakeshore Sport and Fitness.

100% Student Participation Goal! 

Every class to reach 100% participation wins a movie party at The Music Box Theater to be held in early November!

Donations are due by Tuesday October 18th.

Please make sure to include the student name, grade and homeroom teacher’s name when you submit your payment so we can track participation and distribute prices accordingly.  Ensure the donation amount matches your desired donation Level (see below). Donations are 100% tax deductible.
