Got it? Here’s a check list to keep track of everything!

What is it?

Crocker Highlands’ Fall Fundraiser. Students walk laps near the Crocker playground and earn pledges and prizes based on how many laps they complete. Participating students receive a free Walk-a-thon t-shirt that will be used to mark their laps completed. Adults can watch along the route or enjoy the tents and tables set up on the playground.  We plan to have coffee, donuts, snow cones, popcorn, and hot lunch options, including a vegetarian meal, available for purchase. If your child has accessibility requirements, please reach out to us. We want to ensure all kids feel included and participate if they want to.

When is it? 

Saturday October 14th from 9:00am-3pm.

9am: Late Check in (for those who were not able to check in Friday.)

9:20am: Opening celebrations

9:30am: Walking begins at 9:30am sharp!

The last lap must start before 3pm. Students can participate from start to end or for only a portion of the time (starting any time between 9:30am & 2:59pm). Make sure your student checks out before you leave to have their laps counted!


Each year students collect pledges and walk a 0.4 mile course around the neighborhood near the school, earning prizes and a sense of pride as they rack up laps around the course. Starting Line at the Crocker Playground.

How to collect pledges:

Enter the emails of your friends and family in your personalized Pledgestar account to send digital requests for donations! Last call for donations is October 28, 2023.

For those who prefer to request donations in person, you may print a donation form from your Pledgestar account. The form includes a scannable QR code that will bring your friends and family directly to your Pledgestar page.

The Walk-a-thon is encouraging electronic donations in lieu of checks or cash this year.
