This is a favorite among the students. Get outside and enjoy some fresh air and exercise.
This year’s walkathon will be held on Sunday, October 20th, 2019 from 9 AM to 3 PM.
Pledge Forms are sent home with our students and are also available to print HERE. A great time to collect pledges is over the Thanksgiving holiday.
This year we have a special T-Shirt incentive in support of Mrs. Kennedy, who would love to see 100% participation from all our St. Michael’s families!
For every $120 each family contributes, every school-aged child in the family will receive a souvenir Walkathon T-Shirt with this year’s school theme on the front and #TEAMKENNEDY Walkathon 2019 on the back. A limited number of T-Shirts were placed on a one-time order, and sizes and availability will be on a first come, first served basis. As soon as your family reaches $120 or over in pledges, please come and see Mrs. Bird in the office to receive your T-Shirt.
After your walk enjoy some games and lunch or snacks in the gym.
What is the Walkathon?
Walkathon is an annual fundraising event in which students and parents of St Michael’s school raise money by collecting donations for walking a predetermined distance along the route.
Students may start collecting donations as soon as they receive the pledge sheets. Donations may be made by anyone (neighbors, relatives, and friends). Pledge sheets plus donations must be given to the registration desk in the school gym on the day of the Walkathon. Please make cheques payable to St. Michael’s Parish.
The goal for each student is to ask 10 people for $10.
If the student donates an amount $100 or more, there is usually a small prize.
Students, parents, grandparents, friends and Fr. Rossi our pastor, come together to walk 5 km or 10 km depending on everybody’s ability.
This year the Walkathon goal is to raise $20,000 for St. Michael Parish.
After the walk, the students and their families can enjoy a festive day together with food and fun for the kids.
