Compass Public Charter raises money for classmate with leukemia

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.
