Walkathon

Shining our Light on Art, Music and Language Enrichment for our Children

The Walkathon rallies and unifies the St. Mary community in support of Art, Music and Language Studies for the children of our school.  Thanks to pledges collected by our students and donations made by our benefactors, we can continue to enrich our curriculum with vibrant programs in these essential subjects.

16th Annual Walkathon – Thank you!

The 16th annual Walkathon on Friday, May 18, 2018, raised $51,345 to support the arts programs at Saint Mary!

The Walkathon celebrated the Golden Jubilee of Saint Mary. Students studied the history and significance of the school and the historical events that took place during its founding in 1782 and re-opening in 1968. The walk route included Old St. Joseph’s Church, Holy Trinity Church, and Old St. Mary’s Church – three of the original sending parishes that created Saint Mary's unique and influential "inter-parochial" status. 

Thank you to all of the parents, family, friends, faculty, and staff who all made the 16th Annual Walkathon a success!

Special thanks to our Event Sponsors: Anesthesia Services And Products, Inc.; the Bhullar Family; the Ermilio Family; Harman Deutsch Architecture; the Koger Family; and the Montgomery Family.

Saint Mary would also like to extend our sincere gratitude to the SEPTA Safety Team for their help in making the Walkathon safe and fun for everyone!
