When Compass seventh-grader Clayton Buie was diagnosed with leukemia, his classmates at the public charter school, along with the school’s National Honor Society, organized an event, the “Keep Clay Running” walk-a-thon/jog-a-thon, bazaar and raffle. The purpose is to raise money to help Clay’s family pay for his treatments.
The walk-a-thon takes place from 1 to 3 p.m., Saturday, May 3 at the track at Lowell Scott Middle School.
Get your sponsor form on the Facebook page, ”Keep Clay Running.” All are welcome to participate.
Organizers will hold the bazaar in the middle of the track. Spaces are available for $30 or 15 percent of sales, whichever is less. A raffle will be held as well. Several businesses have donated items for the raffle.
The goal of the day is to raise $5,000.
