Changes in 2019’s Walk-A-Thon

By J1 Reporter Claire Thiele

This year, Marian’s annual Walk-A-Thon was different. The only student-led fundraiser will now take all of the profit and put it straight towards the tuition gap.

“I am glad this is a student-led fundraiser because it teaches us leadership skills for when we go into the real world,” junior class officer Lexxi Olsen said. This is a change compared to past years because it used to split the profit between technology and tuition assistance. Now, it all goes towards tuition assistance. After raising $131,623.26 this year, the tuition gap will be covered by this money.

The junior class links arms with the freshman class as they take an oath, which was promising unity and love for all Marian students. Mrs. Susie Sullivan led the students in the pledge.

Junior Rachel Achola said, “This year, I am excited to see the immediate effects of our donations.” This action is immediately affecting families and students because the tuition paid and real cost gap is closed off by all the money each class raised.
