An Opportunity to encourage fitness and educate our students
Our 2011 walkathon is based on some of the best things to come out of the 1960’s and 1970’s: equal rights for different races and genders, caring for our environment, living peacefully, and incorporating exercising into our lives to care for our bodies.
