$5,142.43 for Tunja Children's Center
For several years the Mother Seton School community has sponsored an annual Walkathon to help raise awareness and funds to help many different causes. This year’s Walkathon on Friday, April 26, 2013 will benefit the Daughters of Charity Tunja Children’s Center in the Province of Bogata, Columbia. The program supports children from all religious backgrounds and will help 50 children to improve their mental, physical, social and spiritual condition. To help each child for one whole year will cost approximately $1,700.00.
We encourage all of our MSS students to support this worthy cause by acquiring pledges for the Walkathon. Download an information packet which includes a pledge sheet, general information, and volunteer request form. Please look over the information very carefully and return all paperwork by the dates shown.
Our Walkathon is a traditional spring event for MSS! Thank you for your past and present support of this valuable community service.
$5,692 for Children In Lebanon
By contrast, last year's Walk-a-Thon raised $5,148! Thank you one and all for your very generous donations to benefit the children cared for by our Sisters in Lebanon. Please extend our thanks to grandparents, friends, neighbors who contributed to this student outreach .
An annual tradition at MSS, the spring Walkathon was a great success raising over $5,600 to benefit the Daughters of Charity project in Lebanon.
Walking a two mile loop on the grounds of Mother Seton School, The National Fire Academy, and St. Joseph’s Provincial House, students acquired pledges for every mile that they walked. Many students walked the maximum of 12 miles. Pre-kindergarten students walked two miles and first and second graders walked 4 miles.
