14th Annual Walkathon & Family Picnic
Friday, October 5, 2018

Dear St. Ann Students and Families,

Mark your calendars for Walkathon 2018!

On Friday, October 5, St. Ann School will hold its 14th Annual Walkathon & Family Picnic, our largest fundraiser of the year.
Walkathon is an event for our students to walk together as a community and raise money for St. Ann School. We hope that family members are able to participate in all aspects of the day with us. Families are invited and encouraged to spend the day with your student - walk in the walkathon, join us for a picnic lunch, and then participate in the afternoon activities! In order to make this day a success, we need your help!

For those of you who are new to the St. Ann Community, welcome! On the day of Walkathon, you will find that our students enjoy their family members participating in any part of the day with them.

As the largest fundraiser of the year, we count on each of our families to support Walkathon! There are many ways to reach out to your family and friends for a donation – send a letter, send an email, or just ask! This year, we have envelopes that the students can personalize and send out to donors. Attached is a PDF of a letter you can use as well. Donors are also able to pay via credit card and receive a receipt instantly. With our website, once the donation is processed, the donor will receive an email receipt, and if you would like, we can let you know your family’s donation total.

In order for the Walkathon to be a success and ensure that our students have more opportunities, including field trips, updated technology and more, your help is crucial! Every student is asked to do his or her best to raise a minimum of $50. All students who raise at least $50 are entered into a raffle for prizes. The students love winning prizes! No donation amount is too small – all of the small donations add up!

Walkathon will be a success because of the St. Ann families! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact either                      Walkathon Co-Chair.
