The Future Business Leaders of America chapter at Inglemoor High School held a walk-a-thon on Saturday to raise money for the Uncompensated Care Fund at Seattle Children’s Hospital as part of a chapter-wide community service project.
Funds were raised through a pledge system in which participants are asking for pledges of certain dollar amounts from friends and family for the number of laps they complete.
Inglemoor FBLA will be hosting the same event next year and will look to grow it and increase community involvement then.
The event had 40 participants (more than a third of the FBLA chapter) and 185 sponsors pledging to support FBLA members. Participants ran or walked a total of 1,471 laps. In addition, three half-marathons were completed during the event.
