2015 Haisley Walkathon News

This year, we will be changing the way we solicit funds for the walkathon. 

1.  We have a NEW website, dedicated to the Walk-A-Thon and donations!  Please go http://haisleywalkathon.com.  Share this site with your friends and family members– quick and easy way to get them to donate and sponsor your walker!

2.  We will still be collecting cash and check donations, but no longer on a “per lap” basis.  We will only be taking “set” donations.  We decided to only collect prior to the event this year so that we do not have to chase down outstanding donations.  Also, be on the lookout for pledge envelopes coming home in backpacks this week.

3.  Lose your pledge envelope?  No worries!  Click here for a download of the pledge form.

 MORE WALKATHON NEWS:

The 2015 Haisley Walkathon is just around the corner!  This year the event is scheduled for Thursday, May 21st.  The lower el will walk from 9:30-11:30am and the upper el will walk from 1:30-3:30pm. WE NEED YOUR HELP to make this event a success. Here are a few ways you may be able to help:

VOLUNTEERS:  Please consider volunteering for this event.  Mark your calendar and let me know if you are interested in counting laps, preparing for the event on race day, and also cleaning up once the event is over!  

SOLICIT CASH DONATIONS:  Every child will be sent home with an envelope requesting they raise money for the event.  Last year, we almost raised $19k.  This year, we hope to raise over $20,0000.  Please ask neighbors, friends, and family to support your child’s efforts.  We will be offering on-line donations this year, so it will make it easier to donate!
