WILMINGTON, MA — Watch a short PSA below on the Wilmington Educational Foundation’s Joanne Benton Memorial WEF Walk on Wednesday, October 31, 2018. WEF President Leslee Quick and Vice President Jen Mason explain this popular fundraiser for students in Grades PreK to 5.
Below is an announcement from the Wilmington Educational Foundation:
WEF’s Walk Fundraiser has become one of their largest annual fundraising events to date. They recently renamed the event in honor of the late Joanne Benton (see flyer for more info). The walk reinforces the Wilmington Public School’s belief in physical activity, healthy eating, nutrition and physical education for all students’ academic success.
Students are encouraged to ask family and friends to sponsor them in this walk. They are invited to wear Halloween costumes, favorite sports team shirts, or orange and black attire for the walk. Each school will conduct the walk on Wednesday, October 31st.
The fitness walk rain date will be Friday November 2, 2018.
Last year, WEF was able to fund approximately $25K which encompassed Educational Exploration, Curriculum, Technology and Miscellaneous grant funding opportunities. We also support and fund the annual STEM Fair held at the Middle School.
A flyer has gone home for grade Prek-5th. On the reverse side of the form is the sponsor sheet each student shall use and return with funds prior to the Walk on Monday, October 30th. You can also make an online donation HERE.
Our WMS and WHS families also received a flyer and are encouraged to participate and help our fundraising efforts!
Thank you for your continued support. Without it we would not be able to give back to our schools!
