The 2019 Lawton Runathon
The Lawton Run-a-thon is a fundraiser to benefit the Lawton Elementary PTO (Ann Arbor) and the John Crosby Memorial Foundation (supporting families affected by childhood cancer). Children, their families and friends are invited to participate in the event by registering and collecting donations for their 1 mile run or walk around the neighborhood of Lawton Elementary.
History of Run-a-thon at Lawton
The Run-a-thon was started in 2001 as a collaboration between the PTO and the John Crosby Foundation. John Crosby was a beloved Lawton student who passed away from childhood cancer in 2001. Since 2001, the Run-a-thon has raised over $200,000 which has been split between the Lawton PTO and John's Foundation. The PTO has used the funds for enrichment activities, speakers and programs brought into the school, and for field trips.
