The tradition of BALTO began in 1995 with a group of Edmond North students who decided to start a charity fundraising week. Named after a brave husky sled dog, BALTO stands for “Bring A Light To Others,” which is just what we intend to do!
Since 1995, BALTO has raised over 6 million dollars for charities serving all kinds of needs. We have helped charities serving child cancer victims, brain tumor patients, special education students, premature babies, and many other worthy causes. BALTO strives to bring the students of Edmond North together with the community of Edmond and beyond to do some amazing work! Through activities such as the BALTO 5K, BALTO silent auction, school assemblies, t-shirt sales, and other efforts, BALTO strives to raise money each year for a worthy cause.
Last year, BALTO was able to raise $568,082 for The Children’s Center Rehabilitation Hospital. This year funds raised through Edmond North’s BALTO supports The Down Syndrome Association of Central Oklahoma (DSACO). The purpose of the organization is aligned with its mission to “raise awareness and provide resources, as well as promote acceptance and inclusion for people with Down Syndrome. DSACO envisions communities where everyone, including those with disabilities, is accepted, included, empowered and given the opportunity and choice to create their own happiness and path to success.
