A Walkathon is a very popular fundraiser and is common in Jesuit high schools.  Students raise money for their school by asking family members, family friends, neighbors, and others for donations of any amount.  At the end of the fundraising period, a special day is set aside for students, faculty, and staff to walk throughout the local neighborhood. The Walk is meant as a fun day and symbolize our commitment to our school.
