Walk for Christ 2023 is on September 22!
What is Walk For Christ?
Walk for Christ is St. Joseph School’s yearly fundraiser that combines faith, fun and fellowship in one event. As a family, the fundraising will depend if your child chooses to call friends and families for donations, walk the neighborhood for prayer petitions, or do service projects to raise money. As they witness and share their gifts they return to school with their contributions, having fun along the way! On the final day, the students, parents, and faculty of St. Joseph's School walk a designated route around the school grounds and park area praying for our sponsors, donors, personal intentions, and community along the way.

VOLUNTEER FOR WFC!
Please volunteer to help with Walk for Christ, our school's annual fundraiser at the link below. There are many opportunities throughout the two weeks of the event to assist, including helping to count money collected, giving a hand to the human hamster ball race, distributing popcorn to classrooms, and manning the dunk tank and bounce houses. Thank you! If you'd like to volunteer for certain activities when your children are going to be there, see the WFC SCHEDULE HERE.
In recent years, Walk For Christ funds have provided for improvements to St. Joseph School's technology; gymnasium microphones and audio equipment; funding for buses for class field trips; updates to classrooms, the gym, and cafeteria; new window coverings throughout the school; new playground equipment; teacher/staff appreciation events; student scholarships; preschool para support; community-building events; and many other school improvements. Most importantly, your donation provides an education that recognizes the human dignity and nurtures the gift of each child at St. Joseph School throughout the entire curriculum.
This year, the funds raised will be used to make further improvements to our school building and student facilities. Potential projects include adding an outdoor classrooom and learning equipment to the Mary grotto/interior school courtyard and updates to the school's front entrance. Walk For Christ is an exciting day for our children, celebrating fellowship and encouraging growth in discipleship through prayer for our community and service to others.
