Friday, September 29
In addition to being a super-fun event for the entire school with a focus on the importance of physical activity, Walk-a-thon is one of Belinder Elementary’s biggest fundraisers. Walk-a-thon also provides for a variety of other programs such as curriculum based field trips, teacher grants, special classroom needs, clubs and much more!
Belinder students collect pledges from family, friends and neighbors to see how many laps around the school yard they can make on a Friday afternoon in September. Walk-a-thon is a family-friendly event with 100’s of volunteers, parents and siblings in attendance. There is a D.J. playing student requests and current Top 40 favorites, and local businesses donate sought-after prizes. There is always a special surprise guest!
In addition to all of that, Walk-a-thon is a great community-building event at the start of the school year to meet new families, students, teachers and staff in a fun and casual setting!
