Walkathon

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

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

The 19th annual Walkathon on Friday, May 21, 2021, will celebrate the “Saint Mary Student: Mind, Body, and Spirit,” in recognition of their extraordinary experiences and remarkable resilience over the past year. The 19th Annual Walkathon is generously presented by Center City Orthodontics!

Traditionally, the Walkathon recognizes a historical Philadelphia “first” — but throughout this last year, our students have experienced so many “firsts” in real-time. And they have adapted, evolved, and thrived. They have stayed curious and creative. They have learned the importance of practicing mindfulness through new school programs. They have protected themselves and their communities through wearing masks, hand washing, and social distancing. And they have gained understanding and strength about it all through the Holy Spirit. 

The 2021 Walkathon will celebrate each and every Saint Mary Student while supporting the foundational arts programs that support them on their journeys to becoming passionate, confident, Christ-centered leaders of the 21st century.
