PTA Walk-a-Thon 2023
Hello McKee Families!
The Annual McKee PTA Walk-a-Thon will be held on Friday, September 29th this year. Please support the PTA by helping your student(s) collect donations for the event. Come walk with your kids for an additional $5 donation on the day of the event! Student walk times are listed on the attached flier. See fliers for more information. Paper copies should be coming home in your child’s backpack soon, if they haven’t already.
WALK-A-THON: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
What is the Walk-A-Thon?
McKee’s annual Walk-a-Thon is a school-wide fundraising event where the students ask friends, family, neighbors, community members, etc. to sponsor them as they walk laps around the McKee soccer field. It’s a fun event for our students!
Note: All students will participate regardless of fundraising efforts.
Is it a per lap donation?
No, donors can choose any amount to donate. It is not a per lap donation.
Can I or another family member walk with my child?
Yes, absolutely. We do ask for a $5/adult walking buddy donation on the day of the event which is collected at the Registration/Check-In table. Look for the “Registration/Check-In” signs when arriving. Younger, non-school age siblings are welcome to walk too (no donation required)!
How can donations be submitted?
We accept the following payment options:
1) Cash/Checks made payable to ‘McKee PTA’ (blue or black ink only)
2) Cheddar Up Donation Site
What do the students do during the walk a thon?
Students are encouraged to walk 3 laps or more around the field. There will be music, snacks (apples generously donated by Half Crown Hill Orchard), water available to help the students to stay hydrated and they get to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine.
