Walk-A-Thon will be held on April 25th in the Bartow football stadium on the track. This is Summerlin Academy’s annual fundraising event that all cadets participate in. Every year cadets are asked to gather pledges of money from sponsors to support them as they walk laps around the track. Cadets will walk a minimum of 20 laps, or five miles, to assist in raising funds this year. A challenge has been aroused to help motivate everyone; any company that averages $30 per member will be rewarded with a pizza lunch on a later date, so be sure you take a battle buddy and find as many pledges as possible!
After morning formation, on the Friday before break, everyone will march over to the stadium and remain there for the day. Everyone will complete their laps and then lunch will be served, if you prefer to bring your own lunch you may. A lacrosse game between the boys and girls teams will follow until the day comes to a close. Cadets will be dismissed from Bartow, so those who ride a bus will need to bring their backpacks and put them in the designated areas.
