WARMINSTER — Nativity of Our Lord School held its 20th Annual Walkathon fundraiser April 29 beginning at 10 a.m. on the school grounds.
The entire school student body of over 500 students from pre-K to eighth grade, faculty, and parents began with a brief rally in the school yard and walked together around the school grounds and around the adjoining Archbishop Wood High School property to raise money for projects sponsored by the Home & School Association. The route is approximately 1.0 mile.
Students were asked to solicit sponsors for the walk who may donate any amount. Students earned prizes based on the amount of donations collected. Additionally, each year students are asked to submit a drawing to be judged by the entire school that is used for the annual walkathon t-shirts that students and parents may purchase to mark the event.
The school mascot, the Nativity Tiger, led the walk. The top fundraising classroom won the opportunity to walk with the tiger to lead the walk. The event raised $9000 for the school’s technology program.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
