NAVIGATORS ON THE MOVE
Saturday, September 16, 2023
10 am – 12 noon
Join us for the 11th annual St. Brendan Walk-a-thon to raise money for educational programs, including upgrades to our Art classroom, alternative seating options for our primary grades, materials and supplies for the return of our extracurricular offerings, and books and materials for our library.
We really hope to have 100% of school families participate in this parish-wide effort to benefit our school, promote fitness and build community!
Goal: Our goal is to raise $25,000. To help us meet this goal, we hope every school family can raise at least $100.
Who Can Participate: Anyone and everyone in the parish! Students, parents and other parishioners are all encouraged to join us in supporting our school, staying fit, having fun, and enjoying the company of friends, neighbors and classmates.
Where: The walk will be held on a ½ mile course on the parish/school grounds. Walk as many laps as you are able!
Entertainment: Various games for kids (and adults!) will be situated along the course. Music from our DJ will help keep everyone moving. Every lap walked earns a raffle ticket for fun prizes! Before the walk begins, starting at 9:30 am, we will also have our prize wheel, giant dice game, and plinko game - $1 a try; everyone wins a prize!
Refreshments: Water and fruit will be provided throughout the walk to keep everyone hydrated and energized. Complementary hot dogs and popsicles will be available at the end of the walk.
