PROGRAMS & EVENTS / Viking Walk
THE VIKING WALK WILL NOT BE HELD DURING THE 2016-17 SCHOOL YEAR BUT WILL RETURN IN THE FALL OF 2017!
The Viking Walk provides a full hour for students to run, jog or walk as many one-quarter mile laps as they can. PE teachers and volunteers keep count by giving students rubber bands to wear around their wrist after completing each lap. Prior to the event students solicit family members and neighbors to contribute either by the lap or as flat donation. To help build student interest several grand prizes are awarded to the students bringing in the largest pledge totals. All students will receive popsicles after completing their laps.
PTC members and PE Teachers work together to organize the program. Money raised from this event will help fund the PTC gift goes to either Avoca West or Marie Murphy in alternating years.
