Our fundraising programs include both Event Based Fund Raising and No Cost Fundraising.
The Gator Walk-a-thon takes place in the fall each year. After collecting donations, in the form of pledges, the kids will show their school spirit by wearing their free Gator Walk-a-Thon t-shirts and walk around the playground and surrounding Abbott areas. Parents/families (no pets please) will walk with their children. Extended family, friends and neighbors are encouraged to come and cheer the students from the sideline!
