St. Mary School in Gilroy, California will have their First Annual Walk-a-Thon on Friday, November 13, 2009 organized by the St. Mary Mothers’ Guild. All of our students and staff will be participating and raising funds in support of St. Mary School. Monies raised will go to the school’s General Fund as well as to needed improvements for our facilities and classrooms. We are excited that the nature of this event not only allows us to support the financial needs of the school, but also to encourage physical activity and good nutrition for our children, and to convey the benefits of maintaining a healthy lifestyle. We have many dedicated volunteers who have been working very hard to make this event a success, but we could use your help to better achieve our goals.
