2015 Walkathon record

May 11, 2015

Today we have 42,000 reasons to smile.

Our students have so far collected more than $42,110 to be donated to charity as part of their Edmund Rice Day walkathon fundraising efforts.

This is the most the student body has ever raised through the annual walkathon and each student deserves a pat on the back for their efforts in raising much needed funds for a variety of charities.

All this despite last week’s horrible weather forcing the postponement of the actual walkathon itself.

Junior and Middles School students completed their leg of the walkathon yesterday while the remaining older students will do so later in the month.-

Deputy Headmaster Wellbeing Mr Jon Franzin said he was delighted to the student body rally behind such a worthwhile cause.

“Each year we set the target for our boys to raise $40,000 through the walkathon and this year they have well and truly achieved the goal,” Mr Franzin said.

“To have $42,110 already counted is fantastic and we anticipate there is still more money to come in. This is a record figure for the school so the class of 2015 can take much honour in setting a new benchmark for future years to challenge.”
