Grady's Tiger Trek

What is Tiger Trek?

Grady PTA’s biggest Fall Fundraiser where 100% of the proceeds directly benefit our school and students. The event promotes fitness and encourages our students to collect donations to earn amazing individual and class prizes.

On Friday, September 27th from 8:00 – 10:00 am, all students will be separated by grade and will take turns walking/running around the baseball fields and spending time jumping in bounce houses and playing fun inflatable games. PTA will provide plenty of water, misting fans and snacks for the students. Please see the detailed Tiger Trek schedule below. 


Why participate in Tiger Trek?

  • 100% of the proceeds go directly to help build a track at Grady. PTA’s Tiger Trek goal is to raise $30,000 to start building the track. The track is a 2 year project that will cost at least $70,000 as we will be purchasing a higher quality/safer track top. 
  • Students can earn amazing prizes individually and for their entire class.
