2022 Walk For Canisius
October 21st 2022
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.
Day Of The Event
The day of the Walk is October 21st. There will be attendance in the morning, but there will be no classes. Instead, we will walk along a designated route that includes parts of Delaware Park, Elmwood Avenue, and surrounding neighborhoods.
1. When any student reaches his goal ($90 raised), he will be issued his House Shirt which can be worn for the remainder of the Walkathon Campaign.
2. The Top 5 Senior fundraisers over $500 will receive 25% of their total raised back in the form of a cafeteria credit up to$1,000!
3. The Top 5 Junior fundraisers over $500 receive a parking pass for the faculty lot!
Highest earning House will be allowed to wear their House Shirt in place of a shirt in tie for a week that they choose.
The highest earning house will receive a house lunch.
If the student body raises $60,000 by Oct 21 and we have we have 93% attendance on the day of the Walk, there will be a School Holiday on Super Bowl Monday.
