La Salle's annual Walkathon gives all students a chance to raise money to improve the school and provide financial aid to classmates who could not otherwise attend La Salle.
Each student is challenged to raise $150.
On the day of the Walkathon, students walk the perimeter of campus while listening to music and encountering surprises such as a bouncy slide, a bongo ensemble, and a grill that makes dozens of pancakes a minute.
How donors can give
Walkathon donors can make a gift online by credit card or use the student’s personal Walkathon page on Everyday Hero. Donors can also make a gift via cash or check using the Walkathon forms downloadable here. Forms are also available in the Main Office during the first three weeks of school.
How students can raise funds
In the weeks before the Walkathon, students can create a fundraising page via Everyday Hero, then share the page on Facebook and email the link to family and friends. The page will accept credit cards and track progress.
This is an example of what the page will look like when customized with a name and picture. Students also can post updates to thank donors.
