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.
The 16th annual Walkathon, with a fundraising goal of $45,000, will celebrate the Golden Jubilee of Saint Mary. Students will study 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 will include Old St. Joseph’s Church, Holy Trinity Church, and Old St. Mary’s Church - the original sending parishes that created Saint Mary's unique and influential "inter-parochial" status.
The Walkathon is the vehicle by which the money is raised. We celebrate its 16th anniversary on May 18, 2018.
The Spring Fundraiser collects donations to directly support the arts programs at St. Mary Interparochial School, 2016 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence. Pledges are collected and donations are accepted that all go towards our children’s education in Art, Music and Foreign Language. Without the funds raised by this campaign, St. Mary would either have to substantially curtail or eliminate these valuable programs.
