Ray School Walk-a-Thon 2017: Let's Keep Moving!

Ray School Walk-a-Thon 2017: Let's Keep Moving!

Friday May 19, 2017

Please join us for our annual Walk-a-Thon fundraiser, which will bring our entire school community together for a day of fun, fitness and fundraising.  


Fun and Fitness:  During the Walk-a-Thon, our students reach for their personal best distance during their walk-skip-run around our school playground, while family and volunteers cheer them on. 

Fundraising:  The Walk-a-Thon is also a fundraiser.  Whether it's $5, $25 or $100, we hope that each family will financially participate in the Walk-a-Thon to the best of their ability.  

Our Fundraising Goal: Ray School is committed to keeping students moving.  Active bodies contribute to active minds.  Research shows that the more our students can move during the day, the more they can stay on task during class.  Funds from this Walk-a-Thon will create more opportunities for movement for our students: new recess equipment and wonderful indoor/outdoor recess staff from the Hyde Park Neighborhood Club.  Additionally, this year we want to install a new water fountain for filling water bottles, encouraging our students to drink water instead of sugary juices and soda.  Let's help our children's bodies and brains stay fit and sharp!





Thank you very much for your participation and support!
