What is the Walk-A-Thon?
The Walk-A-Thon is a fun-filled event where we celebrate fitness, fun, and community. It is also our biggest fundraiser of the year. The funds we raise will allow us to support additional enrichment for our school, including field trips, assemblies, library books, classroom supplies, and staff appreciation. Thank you for your support, and we hope to see you there!
Students will begin walking laps around the Monta Loma field during the school day and may continue walking after school is dismissed. Permission slips will be sent home for kids who would like to continue walking after school. Kids must be accompanied by an adult for the after-school portion.
Students are not required to raise funds in order to participate in the Walk-A-Thon.
Students can help raise funds by collecting pledges from friends and family. An envelope will be sent home for students to collect pledges in person (cash or check to Monta Loma PTA), and you can additionally set up a page on 99Pledges for your student to collect pledges online. See instructions here for setting up a page. Note that pledges are flat donations and are not based on laps completed.
Kids will earn a small prize and a ticket for the prize drawing for every 5 laps completed. If they reach their lap goals (30 for K-2 and 40 for 3-5), they will earn additional tickets for the prize drawing and a medal. Prizes include tickets to the Exploratorium, CuriOdyssey, SFMOMA, and the Bay Area Discovery Museum as well as fun experiences with teachers and more!
Healthy snacks and beverages will be freely available to the kids as they’re walking. Additional food items, including pizza, pupusas, and cotton candy, will be available for purchase at the event.
