Fun and Fitness:  During the Walk-a-Thon, our students reach for their personal best distance during their walk-skip-run around our school playground, while family and volunteers cheer them on.  Creative GREEN costumes are encouraged!

Fundraising:  The Walk-a-Thon is also a fundraiser.  Whether it’s $5, $25 or $100, we hope that each family will financially participate in the Walk-a-Thon to the best of their ability.

Our Fundraising Goal: Ray School is committed to keeping students moving, especially in our beautiful outdoor campus, with recess and gardening activities.  Active bodies contribute to active minds.  Research shows that the more our students can move during the day, the more they can stay on task during class.  Funds from this Walk-a-Thon will create more opportunities for movement for our students: new recess equipment and wonderful indoor/outdoor recess staff.  Additionally, this year we want to install a secondnew water fountain for filling water bottles, encouraging our students to drink water instead of sugary juices and soda.  Let’s help our children’s bodies and brains stay fit and sharp!
