Holy Trinity Walkathon

Walkathon 2022 Logo

Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 8, 2022, following 4:30 p.m. Mass. Holy Trinity students, families, and parishioners are invited to our neighborhood walk, carnival, and meet-and-greet celebration!

Did you know…? Walkathon is our school’s largest fundraiser next to the Gala Auction. Like previous years, your donation dollars go directly toward tangible items that advance our kiddos’ learning and enhance their educational environment.

In 2022, our theme is Reinforce our Roots! Donations will be used to improve the infrastructure of our 100-year-old building (think new playground equipment and windows).

2021 was our best Walkathon yet, with $29,000+ pledged by families, parishioners, neighbors, corporate matches, and local businesses. Because of this success, students and teachers can enjoy an outdoor classroom. Scroll down to see our progress on the new Outdoor Classroom, paid for by Walkathon 2021 donations!

What to Expect This Year

Student Pep Rally: Walkathon 2022 kickoff starts at school on Friday, September 30. Get excited!

Spirit Week: Students get to dress up according to a new theme every day, Monday, October 3 through Friday, October 7.

Coin Challenge: Last year, the early education classes were our top coin challenge contributors! This component of spirit week brought in an additional $3,000 for Walkathon 2021.

The Main Event: Walkathon takes place after 4:30 p.m. Mass on Saturday, October 8, 2022. We will walk roughly one mile through the Beaverdale community, then return to the school for a carnival and dinner. Bring friends, family, and neighbors to participate in the fun!
