See what Mrs. Riemenschneider (Zion’s 6th grade teacher) wrote about the walk a thon held last Friday. If you would like to contribute, you have until October 6th to do so.
Our first JH Walkathon was held after Hurricane Katrina in 2009. Now our students are joining efforts for two great causes. 75% of our donations will go to Lutheran schools affected by Hurricane Harvey and 25% will go towards fleece blankets for the organization we are sponsoring with our gum drive and chapel offerings, Friends of Kids with Cancer.
Kids learned about our walkathon at the kickoff assembly two weeks ago. We “cancel” classes for that Friday afternoon and students can dress down that day. (Gym shorts, and spirit wear.) Then, we set the kids loose to run and walk for the cause. Students may begin raising pledges and are encouraged to self-pledge as well. No money is due until after the walk.
