Michigan VS Michigan State Walk-A-Thon
Dear Parents and/or Guardians,
We are pleased to announce the fifth annual Cooper Leadership Walk-a-Thon! This year’s theme revolves around the big interstate rivalry and donations will be collected in support of these two teams; however, 100% of the funds raised will stay with Cooper. The money raised will support our leadership activities such as Career Day, assemblies, updated DVDs, books for students, and other activities and events associated with the Leader in Me initiative.
Please support your student leader in collecting pledges/donations for the walk. We are asking for a minimum donation of $20.00 per student to help us reach our goal of $10,000. That’s just asking 20 people for $1, or four people for $5 or two people for $10. Students will earn one raffle ticket for every $5 they raise. They choose which prize raffle(s) they want to enter. Prizes include a Kindle Fire tablet, a Dell chromebook computer, Amazon or Target gift cards, Phoenix Theater movie tickets, passes to the Livonia Rec Center and Airtime, or a pick from the cash box. The more donations they get, the more chances they have at winning a prize.
The walk will take place from 2-2:45 pm on Friday, October 19, the day before the “big game”. Prize winners will be drawn and announced at the end of the walk. We are looking forward to this healthy, fun, synergistic activity to show school spirit and raise money to help our students.
Thank you for supporting Cooper and our student leaders!
