2019 WALKATHON - FRIDAY, OCTOBER 25
6th ANNUAL WALKATHON
FOR STUDENTS, PARENTS, FRIENDS AND FAMILY
Please support your NHM Eagle in our 6th Annual Walkathon! Click on the link above to donate to the main NHM page, or you can search from that page for your specific NHM student to put your donation towards.
Thisyear we have more Walkathon prizes for the kids, and they are LEGIT!! Individual prizes for who is able to raise the most $$ are a Black Hoverboard (1st), a Polaroid Camera with 80 pieces of Film (2nd) and a $100 Target Gift Card (3rd). Group prizes include a free dress day for the winning house and an extra brain break for the winning class.
If each student raises $50, we will surpass our $15,000 goal! Your donations will help pay for:
Literacy and STEM Materials
School Programs: Honor Choir, Running Club, Chess Club, UIL teams
Garden and Outdoor Classroom improvements
Students can wear their North Hi Mount Spirit Shirt or a House Shirt to support our school as we parade around the neighborhood on Friday, October 25th. We will not be having separate Walkathon shirts this year for purchase and just ask that you ensure you join in on the fundraising fun even that more this year. We will have free wristbands we’ll hand out the week of Walkathon where we will mark your laps at Track Night on October 24th.
Track Night (walking or running laps) is Thursday, October 24th, 2019 from 5:30-7pm on the playground. The parade steps off from the playground at 8:30am Friday, October 25th, 2019. Family and friends are invited to both events.
The celebration carnival follows that evening, from 5-8 pm on October 25th. All games and activities are FREE, but please bring cash to purchase snacks and beverages. We hope to see the whole neighborhood!
BUSINESS FUNDING OPTIONS
While we love to get our students involved to help raise the $15,000 goal we’ve set, we also count on the amazing support from our local and NHM family businesses. Whether you work for a company, own a company or simply just visit a business whom you think would like to be a corporate sponsor, we need your support!! For as little as $250, your business can help be a part of this annual fundraising tradition. See our packages below from our September 2019 Fundraising letter that went out to hundreds of businesses across our community. The Walkathon opportunities are featured under Fall 2019 Donor Opportunity.
Our annual Carnival Celebration occurs on the evening of our Walkathon, from 5-8pm on the NHM Playground. The North Hi Mount PTA brings in bounce houses, games, music, food and fun for the entire family. This FREE (yes FREE admission) event is our way of saying THANK YOU!!!! Thank you for helping us reach our $15,000 goal (because we know we will) and for supporting our students and staff at North Hi Mount.
This year, we will have a fabulous carnival-themed food truck setup for families to purchase food and beverages. The vendor has so generously agreed to then donate 20% of the proceeds back to our school! What a treat.
