Walk-A-Thon 2023

at Riverdale Heights Elementary
Friday, September 22nd, 2023
During School Hours

Walk-A-Thon is our biggest fundraising event of the year. Last year we raised over $20,000 in donations. 100% of the funds raised goes directly to our school.

Who: All Riverdale Heights Students

What: Students walk with their class and grade level for 20 minutes on the track around the field. A DJ plays music and we all have a great time!

When: Friday, September 22, 2023
Parents are allowed to come and watch their student(s) walk outside.

Volunteer: Do you want to get more involved? If so, sign up today to volunteer!

Did your student lose or you would like to review the Walk-A-Thon forms that came home in backpacks the week of 9/11? If so, they are linked below to download and review.

If you purchased the Wild About Riverdale Heights shirt, we encourage you to wear it to Walk-A-Thon on 9/22.

How do I raise donations?

Donations are a flat amount (not a pledge per lap). Ask family, friends and coworkers to help support our school.
A good way to think about how much to donate: $.50/minute=$10, $1/minute=$20, $2/minutes=$40, $5/minute=$100

Use the envelope provided by PTA to collect cash and check donations. Turn the envelope into the main office. All other donations can be made online.

Goal: $25,000

Prizes: Students can earn a prize for donations starting at $10 up to $1000+.
Specific prizes for donation levels can be found here.

Why: PTA helps to fund school wide programs, updates to shared spaces, PE Equipment and special project each year. This year we will give every teacher $150 for classroom supplies and so much more. 2023/2024 fundraising goals will be announced soon.


1) Grade Level Competition - September 18 - September 21
Students bring your cash donations ($1-$5) to the atrium between 8:15-8:30am to get a sticker. Donations will be collected by grade level (not class or individual). The GRADE LEVEL that raises the most money will earn a party and the four winning teachers will get a $25 gift card to KwikStar.

2) Grown Ups - we will have a small refreshment table with coffee, water and donuts at the Walk-A-Thon, Cash or Venmo donations, will be accepted. (Coffee and donuts donated by KwikStar). The DJ will also be taking tips to request a family friendly song or give your student a shout out. (Requests can only be made in person).
