Walkathon: SHC's Biggest Fundraiser


25 Years of Students Supporting Students

Where does the money go?

Over the last 24 years, students have raised more than $3.3 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
  • Student travel, scholarships, technology upgrades, and more
  • The Strength and Conditioning Weight Room

What about this year?

The 2014 Walkathon will support four areas on campus: 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 2014 Walkathon Shamrock Club T-shirt that can be worn throughout the 2014-15 school year in lieu of the standard SHC polo shirt. Students who raise $350 or more will receive a special 2014 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.
