ABOUT THE WALK-A-THON
On Friday, January 31, 2020, we will be hosting St. Mary’s Annual Walk-A-Thon. The walk-a-thon is a fundraiser where all students have the opportunity to get some exercise and have some fun walking with their classmates in the fresh air while helping to raise money for our school. The event will include music, refreshments, prizes and lots and lots of jelly bands! Friends, parents, and teachers will be on hand to cheer on the kids.
Our goal again this year is to raise $10,000 which is a BIG number, but by working together we can achieve anything! In fact, if each student could meet the challenge of raising $50 each in donations, we would more than surpass that goal! Note that since we organize this event ourselves, 100% of all proceeds will go directly to our school.
HOW DO STUDENTS COLLECT DONATIONS?
From now until January 31, all students are encouraged to ask their friends and family to sponsor them for their participation in the St. Mary School 2020 Walk-A-Thon. Sponsors are asked to donate a flat-fee only. (We will not be collecting by laps.)
Students can collect cash or checks made payable to St. Mary School and turn the donations in to the office along with this form: https://www.uburst.com/uwalk/accounts/stmarysschool/donation_form.pdf
Students can accept online donations by sharing a web link with family and friends: https://www.uburst.com/cgi-bin/uwalk/accounts/stmarysschool/uwalk.pl?go=PARTICIPANTS
PRIZES AND INCENTIVES
In addition to knowing that 100% of the proceeds will go directly to our school and benefit us all, we’ve setup a variety of prizes and incentives to help inspire students to collect walk-a-thon sponsors and donations. These incentives include chances to win St. Mary’s Fair Mega Bands, Movie Passes, Nut Day Passes, Apple AirPods (1 grand prize), and More!
Please consider signing up to help run water stations, pass out jelly bands or various other volunteer positions:
We have various sponsorship opportunities available that are mutually beneficial to both businesses and our school.
