1st Annual Walk-A-Thon
This year Frost will host its first annual Walk-A-Thon to support the Ronald McDonald House charities. During the months of April and May students and staff will raise money and collect pop tabs to donate. Fundraising envelopes and more information about the Walk-A-Thon were sent home on 4/13/18- please ask your student to see this information. We have a school goal of raising $5000, any support you can provide to your student in helping them raise money would be great! It is our hope that this end of the year event will provide a positive and purposeful experience for our students and our staff. A philanthropic event like this can truly allow our Frost Strong side to shine; the more collaboration and effort we can put in will result in a greater impact made as well as lasting memories and lessons of kindness learned.
On Wednesday, May 23, 2018 students and staff will participate in the Walk-A-Thon in the morning and celebrate all of their efforts in the afternoon. The Ronald McDonald House Charities support families of children who have medical needs that require them to stay in the hospital. There are currently 5 Ronald McDonald houses in this Chicagoland Area. When families come to Ronald McDonald houses they are able to stay for free because of donations from fundraisers like Frost’s Walk-A-Thon. They are able to stay together, have a warm meal, do laundry, and be part of a supportive community during their challenging times. All money and pop tabs collected during fundraising will be donated directly to the Chicago and Northwest Indiana Ronald McDonald House charity chapter. The date of this year’s Walk-A-Thon also correlates with the national “Red Nose Day.” Red Nose Day is when comedians come together to raise money to benefit children. They do this by putting on a comedy show and being silly with red noses. We will be supporting Red Nose Day by wearing red noses and having fun as we support a fundraiser for children at the Ronald McDonald Houses.
If you have pop tabs you can donate please send them to school with your student. The Interact Club is collecting them to donate to Ronald McDonald House.
All Fundraising envelopes need to be turned in to your student’s homeroom teachers by Wednesday, May 16th at 7:30am. If your student raises at least $20 they will receive a Walk-A-Thon t-shirt and have the chance to win other prizes!
