The Mother Seton School annual Walkathon is a charity fundraiser held each spring. Students ask friends and family to sponsor them as they walk the 2-mile route around campus and the National Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton grounds. Primary students walk with their class. Intermediate through Middle School students may walk independently and must check-in at stations placed in various locations along the route to verify their miles walked. Proceeds raised benefit a variety of causes.

Walkathon 2024: Friday, May 3 (Rain Date: May 10)

Proceeds will benefit Seton Center Outreach. Please see below for further details.
