The students of Ss. Robert and William Catholic School took to the streets on Friday, September 27, 2019, for the sixth annual SRW Walk-a-Thon. The goal of the Walk-a-Thon was not only to encourage physical fitness among our students but also to encourage the spirit of working together to earn money for a specific reason. The funds from this year’s Walk-a-Thon were designated for Phase II of the gym renovation project.

        Each grade level from Kindergarten through Grade 8, as well as the students in our new Guardian Angel Early Learning Center,  promised to walk for one hour to raise money for Phase II. They solicited pledges from family members, friends, and businesses. Over 80 parents and grandparents joined the students and teachers, volunteering to walk or work at the several stations set up in the path of the walk; hula hoops, jump ropes, water, and pictures. Spirits were high and the energy was contagious!

It is with great pride that we can proclaim that our goal far exceeded our expectations! With 78% of full family participation over $29,750 was collected. This is the most profitable Walk-a-Thon yet! The support from this amazing community will touch the lives of many children for years to come.

Thank you to all who made the Walk-a-Thon a success! May God bless you for your support and generosity.
