The Aztec Boys & Girls Club’s 4th Annual Walkathon was held on May 31st.  Our walkathon is not only a fundraiser for our organization, but is intended to promote awareness of our Club and Teen Center and our mission: To inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us the most to realize their full potential as productive, caring and responsible citizens.”  Everyone met at the Club on Ash St. first thing Saturday morning to turn in their pledge money and get their tee shirts and then walked as a group in the Aztec Fiesta Days parade. We were joined by our 2008 Champion for Children, Wink Meador.  Mr. Meador is a long time supporter of the Aztec Boys & Girls Club as well as many other youth related causes in Aztec and typically does not like a lot of recognition for his good works, but he graciously accepted our award and walked with all of the walkers to encourage others to support the Aztec Boys & Girls Club.  XTO Energy provided a great barbecue meal as part of the fundraising event and meals were served both at the Club on Ash St. and at Minium Park as part of the Fiesta Days celebration.  Between the walkathon and the barbecue we raised nearly $30,000 for our organization!  Many thanks to the numerous corporate sponsors,  XTO Energy, Wink Meador, all of the Walkathon Team Captains, Walkers and those who pledged and especially to our 2008 Walkathon Co-Chairs, Millie Howle and Lori Scott!  Lori and Millie worked very hard to make this event the success that it was.
