Each year Bethel Lutheran School’s BPO sponsors their biggest fundraising event. The walk-a-thon is held each October on the school campus. This year’s theme is Love in Action! The goal is $30,000 to help to support and expand our enrichment programs, as well as, stipends for each classroom to purchase additional items they need.
What is Bethel’s Walk-a-thon?
Bethel’s walk-a-thon is an annual event where students walk laps, earn prizes, and raise money for programs at our school. In the past, the money raised was used to fund many things needed around campus that tuition doesn’t cover. This year we are hoping to purchase new lunch tables, additional iPads for student use, additional laptops for teachers use, and send our teachers to various workshops.
Families collect donations (pledges) from family and friends to support their participation in the walk-a-thon. Pledges are collected through a site called DoJiggy.com. Students create a donation page at http://bethel.dojiggy.com. By completing a profile page and emailing pledge requests from family and friends, a student is able to track how much they are raising for the event. When each student completes the registration process, their classroom is one step closer to having 100% participation in the event. Classes that reach this goal receive a special class party chosen by them. If your employer provides matching funds, let us know and we can get the information you need to make your donation go even further!
Families can also purchase raffle tickets for various items available that day. You do not need to be present to win.
Another important part of our walk-a-thon is help from our families to decorate, lay out the course, mark lap cards, pass out prizes, and over all encouragement for our walkers! Below is the link to the sign up for parents wanting to help.
