8th Grade Walk-a-thon Challenges Set

Dear 8th Grade Students and Parents,

 

The 8th Grade Walk-A-Thon is back!  Each year, the 8th grade class gives back to a worthy cause.  This year, we are going to raise money for two incredible charities - The Cherry Tree Club (www.cherrytreeclub.org) and VIP - Villages in Partnership (www.villagesinpartnership.org).   Each charity is working for children that need a lot of support.  One organization is working with children in Mercer County and the other in Malawi, Africa.  The Class of 2012 is an amazing group, and we know you can help these great causes by walking laps and having some fun with your friends. 

 

The Walk-A-Thon will take place on May 11th from 12:30 - 2:30 pm on the field behind Stone Bridge.  Our goal for the whole class is to raise $8,000.  I have no doubt that we can work together to achieve this goal.  It seems like a huge target, but it is realistic. The goal breaks down to about $60 per student.  Although there is no requirement to raise any money, we wanted to give you the opportunity to give back.

 

As a way to motivate you, we will have great prizes for the students (top three) who raise the most money and for the student that walks the most laps.  Additionally, I would like to add to your motivation. Each year that the Walk-A-Thon has existed, I have challenged our 8th graders to raise a certain amount of money. I'd like to present the following challenges to the Class of 2012:

 

If you raise...

  • $2,500 - You all get to throw whip cream pies at Mr. G.
  • $5,000 - You get one day! The 8th grade will be given a day at school where YOU decide what you will do.
  • $8,000 - The top earners will get to shave a mohawk on Mr. G.'s head - in front of the 8th grade (I will be required to wear it for two full school days.).

 

We are looking forward to this year's Walk-A-Thon and working together!  We will have the privilege of having some of the people from Cherry Tree Club and VIP walk with us on the 11th.  We are really excited and hope you are ready to help raise some money for two amazing causes! 

 

Carpe Diem!
