|What is Move-a-Thon?|
Our 20th Annual Move-A-Thon is really on the move this year! On Friday, May 17th, 1,040 students and 100 staff members will engage in a school-wide fundraising walk to support enrichment programs and materials, such as partnerships with Raven Theater, Dream Big, Lookingglass, Barrel of Monkeys, Argument Centered Education, Writer's Theater, Refillable Water Bottle Stations, Sports Equipment, Lockers, Furniture, Beautification Materials & more!
Beginning at 8:30 a.m., 1st through 8th-grade students will walk to the lakefront and back. Pre-K and Kindergarten students will walk to a nearby playground and back. When returning to school, students will have additional opportunities to engage in movement-based activities, wrapping up our day of movement! Our goal this year is to raise $30,000 and to encourage each student to participate in both the walk and raising funds to the best of their ability!
How Can I Help?
1) SAVE THE DATE to walk and volunteer with us! Sign-Up Genius link will be emailed soon.
2) Help your child raise funds! Use the Move-a-Thon website or ask friends and family to donate. (A personal video chat or phone call to family members from your child can go far!)
3) Dedicate a song to be played in their honor during their time walking OR place a Shout-Out ad in our book. E-mail Kate@friendsofpeirce.org to sign up for these options.
4) Businesses and families can place an ad in the Move-a-Thon booklet. More details at https://www.friendsofpeirce.org/move-a-Thon
We are adjusting our initial goal of $20,000 to $30,000 because we know we can reach it!
