Fun, Fitness & Fundraising – PFA Walkathon

The Walkathon is one of the PFA’s major fundraisers for 2017 and a great opportunity to promote a healthy lifestyle through fitness and fun with friends. We’re looking forward to seeing our students walking to raise funds for projects across the life of the school. Everyone who participates in the event receives a Certificate of Participation!

Walkathon Event Details

What: Students will participate in a Walkathon located at SPW. Foundation to Year 3 students will walk laps of Braested Oval, while children in Years 4 to 7 will try to complete as many laps of MacKenzie Oval as possible during the hour-long Walkathon. Each lap will be counted and recorded for the students.
Date: Friday 3 November
Time: 9.00am – 10.00am
Who: Children from Foundation to Year 7. Families are invited to attend and be a part of the event.
Location: SPW Ovals
Braested Oval – Foundation to Year 3 classes.
McKenzie Oval – Year 4 to 7 classes
What to wear: Bring comfortable shoes to walk in if it’s not your PE uniform day.

Sponsorship Opportunity
Students are encouraged to seek sponsorship from friends and family for laps they complete during the Walkathon. On average a child will complete between 15 to 20 laps. Alternatively there is an option to provide a set donation for those that wish to.

Prizes will be granted to a boy and a girl from each year level that raises the most money! And the class who collectively raises the most money will receive a Pizza lunch to share.

What to do before the event
Use your Sponsorship Form to collect sponsorship details and commitments from family and friends. Sponsorship Forms have been sent home with students via class teachers, or spare ones are available via Skoolbag.

Please bring ONLY your completed Sponsorship Form (no money) to school and give to your class teacher by the end of Week 2, Term 4 (Friday 27 October).

What to do after the event
After the Walkathon, the Sponsorship Form and a named zip locked money collection bag will be returned to you with your child’s laps recorded and the money owed by each sponsor tallied for you.

Return your Sponsorship money in the named zip lock bag to your PFA class representative on Friday 10 November. Only money returned by this date will be eligible for inclusion for the prizes.

Get those walking shoes on and start raising money for SPW! Thanks to our PFA for organising this great event for our students.
