BENEFITING: FRIENDS OF OSCAR MAYER SCHOOL
EVENT DATE: May 30, 2014
Sasha is so excited to join all her new friends, classmates, teachers, and parents in her school's annual fundraising event. Not only is it an opporunity to join the greater Oscar Mayer community for some fun, but she can't wait to walk (or more likely, run) around their park in name of wellness -- proving that health and happiness belong together.
Mayer Magnet's walkathon builds awareness around the importance of a healthy lifestyle for children. By working together to promote health and wellness, we can create a generation of physically fit children who have healthy bodies and minds.
By walking laps around Trebes Park, the park adjacent to the school, the students raise money through pledges they have secured for Mayer Magnet School in addition to the generous sponsors.
The money raised will go towards funding school expenses that supplement the students’ learning, but are not covered by the CPS budget. Some examples include field trip buses, books, sports equipment, school supplies and, in some cases, even funding teacher and classroom assistant positions. All of these are essential in providing Mayer students with a stellar educational experience.
Sasha appreciates any donation made in her name to encourage her participation. Many thanks!
