WALKATHON

WHAT IS THE WALKATHON?

IT PROMOTES FITNESS

We promote healthy habits by spending an entire day moving! Children participate in walking, biking, dancing to a DJ and using the bounce house.  We shut down Adams Street for bikers and use the brand new Whitney Young track for walkers. Healthy snacks and water is provided by Pepsi.  

IT HELPS THE SCHOOL

The Walkathon is the largest fundraiser of the year. This year the Walkathon raised more than $80,000.  These funds are used to enhance all students' learning by using the funds to purchase supplemental classroom materials and technology that would not otherwise be possible with the regular school budget. 


IT BUILDS COMMUNITY

The entire school participates in the Walkathon each year . All students, many parents and family members,  teachers,  staff and the administration join in.  It is a fun day to spend as an entire school working towards one common goal.
