Dear Ridglea Hills Family & Friends,
We are so excited to kickoff Walkathon 2022!
What is Walkathon? It is an opportunity to build community and raise money for our school. We want every family to participate, and there are many options to do this. The month of September will be full of fun challenges and fundraising opportunities, and our goal is that students and parents will be excited to participate in a variety of ways. From eating at participating fundraising restaurants, to asking friends and family for financial support, to volunteering your time, to donating spare change - there are so many ways for each and every person to contribute and help us reach our goal!
What do we do with all the money raised during Walkathon? Every year, the PTA selects the most
pressing needs for the school and uses the budget to help fill these. In the past, the needs included: campus enhancements, technological upgrades, Fine Arts Day, literacy outreach, and extended learning opportunities, such as field trips. Your support is key in reaching our school’s goal this year!
This year, our theme is We Are Ridglea. Ridglea Hills Elementary and all the wonderful things it has to offer for our students, families and community are only possible because of each and every one of you.
You can make a difference and support Walkathon’s fundraising efforts in 4 simple ways:
1) Walk – join us for the walk!
2) Financial Sponsorship – check out what works for your family or business

3) Solicit – invite your friends, family, and neighbors to donate
4) Participate – join us at spirit nights, buy a t-shirt, visit the spirit shop, volunteer to help
So, save the date! The Walkathon will take place on September 30, 2022 at 8:00 am, and we
want YOU to be there. This event will be a grand celebration for our month-long fundraising
efforts! Families are welcome and encouraged to join as the entire school takes a 1 mile walk
around the neighborhood.
Thank you for your support and commitment to making our school a connected community! Keep up with the calendar and follow us on our Facebook page: “Ridglea Hills Elementary School PTA”. For any questions, please contact Julie Dore at RHEwalkathon@gmail.com.
