Holy Trinity Walkathon

2019 Holy Trinity Walkathon 
October 12 at 4:30 p.m.

Please donate today to support the Holy Trinity Walk-A-Thon!

A wonderful Holy Trinity tradition continues! In just six years, the annual Holy Trinity Walkathon has raised nearly $100,000 to update the media center, improve technology, enhance our playground and make our school a safer place for our students and teachers. But we’re not done! This year the Holy Trinity PTO, in cooperation with the Board of Education and the Holy Trinity Administration, has another challenge for our students, faith formation groups, parents, and parishioners: Show us your Flex!

The fundraising goal this year is to provide flexible seating for our students, starting in the cafeteria and moving into the classrooms.

Studies have shown that when you put the choice of seating in front of student’s class participation increases by up to 48%.There are many benefits to flexible seating and empowers students to collaborate and stay focused throughout the day. What better way to create a student-centered classroom than by creating a classroom from the student’s perspective!

How can you help? We have an ambitious goal to raise $21,000 this year and we can’t do it without you!

  • Join the fun! Show your school/parish pride by walking through Beaverdale with your Holy Trinity friends and family on Saturday, October 12 for 4:30pm Mass, Walk and Dinner.
  • Sponsor or donate to the 2019 walk! Donations are tax deductible. Remember, every dollar collected goes to our kids’ school! Don’t forget about companies with matching gift programs!
  • Spread the word. Encourage your fellow Holy Trinity family and friends to take part in this memorable event—ask for a pledge or donation to our event.

Here is the schedule for October 12:
4:30 – Parish mass led by and for the students
5:30 – All school and faith formation families are invited and encouraged to do the walk
6:30 – Family dinner provided to all participants

Our greatest community event is here —the annual Holy Trinity Walkathon! Everyone is really excited for this year’s Walkathon on Saturday, October 12 starting with mass, followed by a walk around Beaverdale and dinner. The fundraising goal this year is to provide flexible seating for our students, starting in the cafeteria and moving into the classrooms.

Why is Flexible Seating so important?

Studies have shown when you put the choice of seating in front of students class participation increases by up to 48%.
Other benefits include:

  • Encourages students to focus, stay calm and productive
  • Empowers students to have control of their surrounding
  • Flexible seating provides physical activity
  • Builds community and collaboration in the classroom
  • Helps make learning fun!

We have an ambitious goal to raise $21,000 this year and we can’t do it without you!  By supporting the Walkathon you are supporting our greatest assets, our students! EVERY ONE of the kids at Holy Trinity will benefit from this project, and we need your help to reach our goal!
