Walk-a-Thon Groups

Walk with Grace - Walk-a-Thon Volunteers

Grace's annual Walk with Grace walk-a-thon is Friday, October 2nd.  Last year the walk-a-thon was a big success and a great way to kick off the school year and get to know new students and families.  Even though this year looks a lot different, we know that it will be a great and very successful day!  Walk with Grace is a fundraiser for our school and the families greatly affected by the pandemic, but as part of our mission, Grace always looks to give back to the greater community.  This year we will also be supporting Beyond Hunger (www.gobeyondhunger.org) by collecting food and supplies.  This is an exciting day for the kids where they will walk around River Forest as classes and gather food and supplies, and then come back for fun activities with their classes.  But like any event, it takes volunteers.  The walk is on Friday (it is a half-day so all commitments will only be in the morning), but there are opportunities to help before then as well.

NOTE: This event is open to the whole school- both in-person and remote learners, so all families can get involved!
