Royal Manor ES
will host its second annual walk-a-thon event May 31, 2012, from 8 a.m. - 2 p.m.,
with a kickoff assembly and a ceremonial first lap.
Our kids have worked very hard to collect pledges and are learning much in regard to school pride, community awareness, and most of all health and fitness. - Lisa Laurent, Royal Manor ES PTA
"Our kids have worked very hard to collect pledges and are learning much in regard to school pride, community awareness and most of all health and fitness," said Lisa Laurent a member the Royal Manor PTA
and coordinator for the event. She said that in addition to the numerous local business that have lent their support, many Royal Manor ES alumni will return to serve as volunteers, including a magician and another who will take on the role of "Wally" the frog, the mascot of Gahanna.
Last year, the event raised $13,000. Half the proceeds went toward the purchase of a new sound system. A portion was also put in reserve in anticipation, that combined with the proceeds from this year's event, to purchase iPads for the Classroom
