Bring A Light To Others, also known as BALTO , is Edmond North’s annual fundraiser. Each year, North chooses an organization to raise money for. There is a whole week dedicated to BALTO, and within that week there are multiple assemblies, dress up days and treats made by students. The student body works together as a community to serve Edmond and the people of Edmond.

Two years ago, North raised $271,052 for Children’s Hospital volunteers. This year, North is saving up money for an organization called The Care Center.

The Care Center  is a nonprofit institution working to end child abuse in Oklahoma County. They provide families with educational programs to better understand child abuse. Their mission is to “educate and listen to children.”                                            

There is a program for adults and one for children. The adult program teaches how to see the signs and symptoms of abuse and how a person should respond to and report (suspected) abuse. The program for children teaches them more about their bodies and the power of saying no.

Since 1955, North has raised over $3.5 million. BALTO events begin on December 13th, so make sure to attend all the events that you are able to.
