VIRTUAL WALK-A-THON 2021

OLPH School is holding a VIRTUAL WALK-A-THON this year for the whole family to take part in from February 12th to February 24th, 2021. Funds raised each year through our annual Walk-A-Thon are vital to the operation of our school. This year, because of the unprecedented changes brought on by COVID-19, OLPH students and their families have the opportunity to get more involved, get active, and make a bigger impact together than ever before!

This year’s fundraising goal is $20,000.

As such, the goal for each OLPH student in Preschool through 8th Grade: Raise at least $150 through pledged donations.

All funds raised benefit Our Lady of Perpetual Help School & Preschool, supporting our ability to continue offering a Preschool program and accredited K-8 Catholic education in the eastern Coachella Valley.

HOW OUR VIRTUAL WALK-A-THON WORKS

Between February 12th and February 24th, students are encouraged to collect pledges and complete a 3-mile walk or more. Donors can pledge to pay a set amount per mile or make a one-time donation. (Students must use the provided Pledge Form below.) Students must then complete a 3-mile walk (or more, if they choose to do so). The walk can be completed anytime between Feb. 12th and Feb. 24th. Four (4) courses around the eastern Coachella Valley have been mapped out below for your convenience. Students can choose to walk a route of their choice, and fitness apps can be used to track distance. The minimum distance completed should be 3 miles. Students must then collect all of the pledged donations and submit their completed pledge sheet and money to the School Office.

Students who submit their completed pledge forms and money to the OLPH School Office by 4PM on Wednesday, February 24th, will be recognized on our website for this year’s event, and the Top 3 Fundraisers will receive special prizes!

If a student misses the Feb. 24th deadline, their completed forms and money must be turned in no later than Wednesday, March 24, 2021. This is a mandatory fundraiser and will be billed to the family’s FACTS account if not paid by the final due date of March 24, 2021.

OLPH students and parents must also complete the Waiver Form and Student Contract below.

To complete and submit the required fillable PDF forms below, click on the form to download it to your computer. Open the file on your computer, fill in the requested information, and save. Email completed forms by their indicated due dates to olph@olphindio.net.

Waiver Form due by Monday, February 19, 2021

Student Contract due by Monday, February 19, 2021

Pledge Form due, with money, to the School Office by Wednesday, February 24, 2021

Please note: The minimum amount to be raised by each student is $150. However, if a family has three students enrolled, the minimum amount is $300 total for the first two students and an additional $50 for every student thereafter.

4 COURSES IN THE COACHELLA VALLEY

Get active together! Grab the family and go for an outdoor walk in the beautiful Coachella Valley. Between February 12th and February 24th, choose any one of the 4 courses below. Students are encouraged to complete a course before Wednesday, February 24th, in order to be recognized on our website for this year’s event. Submit your completed form showing the course you walked and how many laps you completed along with the money you raised by Wednesday, February 24th, to see your rank listed alongside all of our other OLPH student participants.

Students can also choose to walk a route of their choice other than those suggested below. We encourage students to complete at least 3 miles. Fitness apps can be used to track distance.

Please note: Students who submit their information and money after February 24th, 2021, will not be included in the rankings online.
