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!
Pre-K, TK, + K walk at 9-9:30
1st + 2nd at 9:30-10
