Hanna's 4-H Walkathon
Organized by: Hanna LaPointe
EVENT DATE May 07, 2016
This will be my fourth year participating in the Annual 4-H walkathon. Last year I raised more money than anyone else and would like your help achieving that goal this year. My goal this year is $1000! Please help me in achieving my goal and supporting this important organization. THANK YOU!!!
4-H is the nation’s largest youth development organization, empowering six million young people throughout the United States. Through America’s 110 land-grant universities and its Cooperative Extension System, 4-H reaches every corner of our nation—from urban neighborhoods to suburban schoolyards to rural farming communities. With a network of more than 6 million youth, 611,800 volunteers, 3,500 professionals, and more than 25 million alumni, 4-H helps shape youth to move our country and the world forward in ways that no other youth organization can.
DID YOU KNOW THAT 4-H youth excel beyond their peers. 4-H'ers are about:
Four times more likely to make contributions to their communities (Grades 7-12); Two times more likely to be civically active (Grades 8-12);
Two times more likely to make healthier choices (Grade 7);
Two times more likely to participate in Science, Engineering and Computer Technology programs during out-of-school time (Grades 10 – 12);
4-H girls are two times more likely (Grade 10) and nearly three times more likely (Grade 12) to take part in science programs compared to girls in other out-of-school time activities.
