WALK-A-THON is: Fun, Fitness, and Fundraising! 

Thank you for raising $30,000!


Everyone walks, everyone wins! Here’s what you need to know: 



Fundraising for Enrichments: 

100% of WAT proceeds will support our school’s arts and enrichment programs, including orchestra--which is not funded by LAUSD. We are looking to community & corporate sponsors, as well as the friends and families of our Richland students, to meet our $35K goal. 


Be a PledgeStar: 

Sign up for PledgeStar and enter 10 email addresses of friends and family. (No personal information will be shared with third party vendors; PledgeStar keeps contact info confidential.) See: https://pledgestar.com/richland/ 


Be a Sponsor: 

Sponsorship opportunities for the WAT event banner are available. Support our school and see your company name and/or logo displayed on our annual banner. 


Fitness for All: 

Participate in MOCK-A-THON training Monday through Thursday morning on the week of WALK-A-THON: March 16-19 from 7:45-8:10 AM. At each training, parent volunteers will sign in student participants and record laps walked each day. The top ten students with the most laps walked will be recognized at a morning assembly. 


Fun on Event Day: 

Students will be broken up into three heats according to their grade level. Parents, caregivers, and friends are all welcome to attend the event!
