“On the day of the Walk-a-thon, please wear comfortable walking shoes. Remember, This Is Not A Race, but a way for you to have fun and raise money for our school. Walkers will complete their meters or laps and staff will be keeping track of the number of meters or laps each student walks.

“After the event, we will be providing light refreshments of fresh fruit and water. Strollers are welcome. Please note there will be a special prize for the student and their parent[s] who raise the most money.”
