2017-2018 Wildcat Walk-A-Thon Chairs | PTA Board

The West Vincent Elementary PTA will host the first-ever Wildcat Walk-a-Thon on Tuesday, October 17, 2017 (rain date is October 20th).  This event combines fitness, fun and fundraising to encourage kids to help raise money to support the many PTA programs they and their families enjoy throughout the school year.

All students will receive an information packet about the Wildcat Walk-a-Thon.  This packet will include information about the walk, answers to questions, details on what is expected, t-shirt size form, and 10 donation request postcards, ready to mail to friends and relatives.  

On the day of the event, all West Vincent students and staff will walk outside for 30 minutes.  They will be pumped up by music from a DJ, inspired to keep moving by motivational signs and treated to some fun surprises.  The student from each grade, who has raised the most money by the day of the event, will be invited to lead the walk and hold the official Wildcat Walk-a-Thon banner with our mascot, Willie the Wildcat.   All walk participants will be eligible to win prizes.  A week after the walk, various raffle prizes will be awarded, and the top overall fundraiser and top fundraising class, will be awarded special prizes.  Of course, all students are winners because the funds raised during this event, allow for more programs at our school.

Our goal is to raise $15,000. If our stretch goal of $20,000 is achieved, an entire cooler of icy sports drink will be dumped on Mr. Smith's head!
