Warriors Walk

March raises close to $40,000


Around 170 participated in the eighth annual Warrior Walk, the Glasgow Christian Academy’s primary fundraiser, on Thursday.

Along with the pancake breakfast, the Warrior Walk raised $39,300. Tracy Shaw, Glasgow Christian Academy Principal, said the fundraiser plays a pivotal role in providing services for their students grades K-12.

“Since we’re a private school, tuition and private donations is our only source of funding,” Shaw said. “This is our largest annual fundraiser.”

Prior to the Warrior Walk there was the pancaking contest, the second year for this tradition. Participants from the Glasgow National Guard, the Barren County Sheriff’s Department, Glasgow Police Department, Glasgow Fire Department, a Christian Academy student, teacher and a board member ate five pancakes as fast as possible. The National Guard reigned victorious in this year’s pancaking contest.

The pancake breakfast was sold at $5 a plate for adults and $3 for children. The breakfast was supplied and prepared by Houchens Market.

“Since Houchens prepares and provides the materials, there’s very little cost to the school,” Shaw said. “It’s a huge blessing.”
