4/25/12: Ditson's 2nd Annual Walk-a-Thon for Healthy Living

Our Spring Fundraiser is a Walk-a-Thon for Healthy Living.  I love this idea, the kids get to learn about healthy living, go outside to enjoy walking, and have a great time!  Plus they raised $11,000!  Here is the 1st Grade Class.
 I got to organize the event this year with my Co-Vice President.  We had the kids make pennants in Art class, plus write/draw something that represented healthy living.  Plus we had raffles for the kids with sports equipment and gift certificates to area businesses.  I was lucky enough to get GymStreet USA and Ellen's School of Dance to donate.  Here I am with Evan!
 Evan all excited to go on his walk.
 You have to stretch before you exercise.
 Here they are all stretching.
 Coming round the bend.

 Then they all got a juice pop and water.

 We had signs posted around the walk.
 Each class made a pennant for the banner.
 What a great day!
I can't wait till next year!
