When should students arrive?:
Students should arrive and be seated with their Homerooms by 8:30 am. Students will report to the Polo Fields.
What time are students dismissed?
Students will be dismissed around 12:30 or 1:00 pm. We encourage families to communicate with students regarding their afternoon plans.
Is this mandatory?
Yes. All students must be present and attendance will be taken. If your student is ill or unable to come to the Walkathon, standard absence procures should apply.
Where does the money go?
Over the last 26 years, students have raised more than $3 million through the Walkathon – money which directly supports the students of SHC!
To date, the Walkathon has helped fund:
- Fitness for Life Program
- Fitness Center
- Sister Teresa Piro, DC, Student Life Center
- Herbst Library and Information Center
- Laptop computers in the Library
- SHC Gateway at Gough and Ellis Streets
- Strength and Conditioning Weight Room
- Student travel, scholarships, technology upgrades and more
What about this year?
The 2016 Walkathon will support the final phase of the transformation of the Science Facilities, Student Travel Grants and Scholarships
Everyone loves a prize!
Students who surpass $250 during the Walkathon will qualify for additional prizes, such as a special 2016 Walkathon Shamrock Club T-Shirt that can be worn throughout the 2016-17 school year in lieu of the standard SHC polo shirt. Students who raise $350 or more will receive a special 2016 Walkathon Shamrock Club sweatshirt. Students who raise $500 or more are eligible for an “SHC Passport,” a collection of passes, privileges and tickets. These are just a few of the great prizes students can look forward to when meeting their fundraising goals.
