2019 Walk-a-thon

March 5, 2019, Author: CONeal

Our annual walk-a-thon is a school-wide fundraiser where students raise donations by collecting pledges from friends and family to walk as many laps around the track at Howard Park (located next to the school). Parents are encouraged to participate, volunteer, or cheer on our students.

Help St. Thomas get walking!
