Want some insider info about the RHS Walkathon??? Here are some secrets: 

  • It’s this Saturday, November 14

    • (But...if this Saturday doesn’t work for you, you can choose any date...we aren’t actually going to be tracking you) 😀

    • Here are some suggested routes if you need ideas...or just make up your own around your block or neighborhood

  • There are t-shirts

    • EVERY kid gets a t-shirt, and kids are encouraged to wear them in class on Friday (Nov 13) to show their school pride, as well as on the day of the Walkathon so you can spot other RHS families while you’re out

    • There is another walkathon t-shirt pick up opportunity this FRIDAY November 13, 2:30-4:30 at Jordan Park. If you have Reach New Heights swag coming your way, you can pick that up too!
  • You can raise money for RHS by setting up your own walkstarter (, OR...if that’s just not in the cards for you, your friends/family can donate directly - just make sure they put your kid’s name in the memo so your child gets credit toward their overall goal

  • The Walkathon committee is encouraging flat donations this year to make it easier on tracking or reporting how much your kid walked! Because we all need one less thing to worry about. 

  • The Walkathon is critical to support key PTA-funded positions at RHS, such as garden and art...and right now we have only achieved $5,000 of our $50,000 goal, with less than 10% of students participating. We need YOU!! So please, sign up, share the information, raise some money, and participate in this important school event!
