What is the Walk-A-Thon?
The Holy Family Cathedral School Home & School Walk-A-Thon is our annual fall fundraiser to support the students, staff, and community at Holy Family Cathedral School. This year we will hold the event on Wednesday, October 31st, 2018, from 10:25 AM-12:00 PM. Students will have up to 30 minutes to walk as many laps as possible, followed by a lunch outside. Money is raised through business sponsorships and donations students collect.
The Walk-A-Thon raises money for the Home & School Board to provide programs that may not otherwise be available to our school. Through generous donors, the Home & School Board has been able to:
Provide up to $100 to each teacher and department staff members for classroom resources and supplies.
Provide furniture for classrooms.
Support educational experiences such as the annual Spring Arts Festival and classroom field trips, such as to the Woody Guthrie Center, Tulsa Glassblowing School, Tulsa PAC, and many more.
Provide low-cost and free family events such as the Spirit Swim Day at Safari Joe’s, Chili Bingo, and Lenten Supper.
Provide teacher appreciation luncheons, activities, and treats and teacher Christmas bonuses.
And so much more.

Below is a template that you can use to email family and friends about the Walk-A-Thon:
Dear Friends and Family,
Please consider supporting [your child's name] and her wonderful school, Holy Family Cathedral School Academy of Arts & Sciences, through the 9th Annual Holy Family Cathedral School Home & School Walk-A-Thon on Wednesday, October 31, 2018. The students will have up to 30 minutes to walk as many laps as possible, followed by lunch outside.
The Walk-A-Thon raises money for the Home & School Board to provide programs that may not otherwise be available to [your child's name] and her school. Through generous donors like you, the Home & School Board has been able to provide furniture for classrooms, support educational experiences, and sponsor family events for our whole school. These programs would not exist as they do without Home & School support. Last year's Walk-a-Thon raised over $13,000 for the school.
Your pledge is for a definite amount, not per lap. If everyone in the class collects pledges, then they will get an ice cream party. Please let me know as soon as possible if you are willing to donate. You can also donate online at holyfamilycathedralschool.org/walkathon/. Funds need to be turned in by Friday, October 26.
[your child's name] is excited to be walking laps for her school. I hope you’ll support her efforts.
