More than 300 participants are expected to attend this year’s BOLT. With the help of sponsors like you, in the past BOLT has raised more than $6,000/year to support important PTA initiatives, such as Ligon’s Food Ark Program. With the goal of creating a healthy community through exercise and education, this year’s event will not only help families work up a sweat together it will also raise funds to support Ligon’s Food Ark Junior Program – a holistic student/family food and supply center that is housed within our school for families who are food insecure and is open to the community. The PTA will use the proceeds from this year’s race to support NEXT YEAR’S Food Ark Junior!

We are grateful for the many area businesses, organizations and families that sponsor this race. We could not succeed without the generous support of our families and business community! Sponsors’ names and logos are highly visible on race t-shirts, brochures and banners — students enjoy wearing the shirts on the day of the event, on field trips and around town. Having your logo on the shirt is sure to bring brand awareness and is a smart way you can advertise your business and support the school at the same time. It is a win-win situation!

We hope you will consider sponsoring the 2019 Bolt for the Blue! All donations are fully tax-deductible.
