What to expect on the day of the Walk-A-Thon?
All students who have pre-registered and paid a minimum of $50.00 must wear their Walk-A-Thon t-shirt. Laps will be marked on the back of the shirt, and in order to qualify for prizes, lap totals must be recorded before the “Last Lap” table closes.
Day of event registration will be available starting at 2pm. Pledges can be cash or check (checks made to SMTF). T-shirt sizes may be limited and only received with a minimum pledge of $50.00. Lap cards available with a $10.00 donation for Jr. Walkers, or those who wish to get lap prizes without a t-shirt.
3:15pm Golden Ticket winners will line up for the first lap with Ms. Metz. The Walk-A-Thon will open to all other walkers when that lap is completed.
ALL STUDENTS MUST HAVE AN ADULT CHAPERONE ON THE PREMISES AT ALL TIMES WHILE WALKING.
Lap prizes are given for 5, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, laps. Light speed isn’t counted.
There will be food trucks and drinks available for your purchase. We know kids get hungry after school so there will be plenty of options to fuel them (and you) during the Walk-A-Thon! A snack shack will also be available with water and small treats. Be sure to bring cash for the food trucks.
A fabulous MC will be on the mic and providing music to keep walkers motivated! And look for Sammy the Cougar to join the fun and walk a few laps too!
Make sure you make your way over to the auction area. There you will find our “Teacher Treats” and Silent Auction items. Teachers go above and beyond to create a unique experience that allows your student to spend quality time with their teacher. You will also be able to bid on graduation seats, musical performances and more. All money raised via the Teacher Treats and Silent Auction goes directly to SMTF. The children love it as well, it’s a win win for everyone!
On Friday, October 12th, dress your child on WAT Spirit Day to show your support! The Spirit Day theme is Space Walk! Come in any school appropriate themed dress, clothing or costumes.
Dress your child for the event and the weather. We walk rain or shine. Think hats, sunscreen, comfortable shoes, and possibly sweatshirts. Parents and supporters who aren’t walking may want to bring a field chair.
