We cordially invite you to participate in the 11th Annual St. Mary School Walk-A-Thon that will take place on Friday, October 6th. Funds raised will help St. Mary School support over 300 students, Pre-K through 8th grade, from over 22 surrounding communities and the city of Chicago.
Fundraiser Key Points:
Dismissal will be at 12 Noon.
Students will walk with their homeroom on a designated route through Riverside.
Each class will be chaperoned by their homeroom teacher and at least one parent volunteer.
Every St. Mary family has a $250 Walkathon goal. Each family reaching the $150 goal will be entered into a drawing for one of three major prizes valued at $350, $250 and $100.
For every family that reaches their goal, each student in the family will be entered into their grade-level raffle for an extra chance to win a prize valued at $50! Contributions must be received by the end of the day Friday, October 6th, to be counted toward the family goal and eligible for prize entry. Make your family donation below.
Families that double their goal will be entered into a raffle for a $500, $300, or $250 prize! If you double their goal they are entered into a drawing for a dinner hosted by Father Tom and Father Matt in the rectory.
Click the button below to fill out an online permission slip. One form will need to be filled in for each child. Family Donations (online or to the school office ) should be turned in on or before October 6th to be eligible for prize drawings.
Every student will get a 11th Annual Walk-A-Thon T-shirt on the day of the walk. These t-shirts are an approved uniform that may be worn throughout the entire school year as part of the gym uniform. Thank you for your support!
