Walkathon

SHINING OUR LIGHT ON ART, MUSIC AND LANGUAGE ENRICHMENT FOR OUR CHILDREN

The Walkathon rallies and unifies the Saint 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 18th annual Walkathon will be on Wednesday, May 20, 2020. It will celebrate Philadelphia as the first World Heritage City in the United States as we continue to work with our Partner in Academic Excellence, Global Philadelphia. Throughout the spring, students will continue to learn about the heritage of Philadelphia as well as their own family heritage and what it means to be a global citizen. Their studies and fundraising efforts will culminate in a walk to many heritage sites throughout the streets and parks of our school’s neighborhood.

Throughout the spring, students continued to learn about the heritage of Philadelphia, as well as their own family heritage, and what it means to be a global citizen.

Their studies and fundraising efforts culminated in a virtual Walkathon, where families were asked to choose a location in their neighborhood that has historical or personal significance and walk to their chosen location with their family!

During these uncertain times, supporting mission-driven programs at Saint Mary is critically important. In addition to sustaining art, music, and language enrichment programs, funds raised through the Walkathon will support families who have suffered severe hardships and need tuition assistance relief for this school year; continued compensation for our dedicated teachers; and necessary supplies for our students. 

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, while providing support for our families.
