Community Service Walk-a-Thon

Our Community Service Walk-a-thon is a fun and fit activity for grades 1 through 8.  Students set realistic lap goals based on age and development. Drinks will be provided, and each student will receive a certificate of participation. Our goal is to raise at least $12,000. Half of this will help The Village Kitchen and our garden. The other half will support the following eight organizations, which were chosen for co-sponsorship due to their commitment to community values and ecological awareness:


1st Grade: Nearby Nature

2nd Grade: Cascades Raptors Center

3rd Grade: Food for Lane County Gardens

4th Grade: NextStep Recycling

5th Grade: Walama Restoration

6th Grade: Chintinimi Wildlife Rescue

7th Grade: Whole Earth Nature School

8th Grade: McKenzie River Trust


How does your contribution help?

The average walk-a-thon benefits the organization sponsoring the event or a large nonprofit organization. The Village School Community Service Walk-a-Thon differs in that it supports local organizations working to improve conditions right here, in our community. Students further the efforts of these groups by raising funds and conducting a service project. Proceeds also support the Village School garden and healthy kitchen which prepares meals on site with mostly locally sourced and organic ingredients.
