The Mother Seton School annual Walk-a-Thon is a charity fund-raiser held each spring. Students ask friends and family to sponsor them as they walk the 2-mile route around campus and through the National Fire Academy 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 Details

Students will acquire pledges to contribute. Use the Pledgestar link for online
donations at OR use the paper pledge sheet to collect
donations (one pledge sheet per family with the oldest/only child’s name at the top).

the teacher aware if you plan to help.
