The Walk-a-thon will take place at St. Mary Parish - Parking Lot during school hours on Friday, May 18th (Rain Date: Monday, May 21st).  Participation is free and all students will walk, with their classmates and buddies, during their assigned time slot.
 
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The process is simple. Students will ask people to be “Sponsors."
  • Sponsorship is a single donation and not based on laps or minutes walked. 
  • Sponsors may be friends, family, neighbors, parents’ co-workers or local businesses.  
  • Ask sponsors to check with their employers for Employee Matching programs.
  • Cash, or checks made out to “St. Mary Parents’ Association,” can be collected and returned to your homeroom teacher (Attn. SMPA).
  • Donations can also be made online through the Donate to Participant or General Donations page.  Sponors have the option to donate to a student, class or make  a general donation to the school.
  • All donations are tax deductible for your sponsors!
  • Please note, Students should never go door-to-door without an adult.
THE DAY OF THE WALK-A-THON
  • Students should come to school in their gym uniform with comfortable walking shoes.  Students may opt to wear their spirit shirt in lieu of their gym uniform shirt.
  • Students may also bring hats, sunscreen and extra water to school that day.
  • Students should return any remaining sponsorship donations received via check or cash to their homeroom teacher (Attn. SMPA).
  • Volunteers will be needed to help run this event.  Please pencil in the date!  A formal volunteer request will be sent out two weeks before the event.
ALL CLASSES THAT REACH THEIR CLASSROOM GOAL (AVERAGE OF $25 PER STUDENT) WILL RECEIVE A FUTURE OUT OF UNIFORM DAY!  CHECK THE RACE TO THE FINISH LINE BOARD IN THE CAFETERIA FOR UPDATES!
