Seattle Chapter of APRI Juneteeth Walk–A–Thon for Education

June 17, 2017 @ 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM

APRI’s walk-a-thon is a fun and fit activity for Adults and Children, with everyone reaching for their personal best distance. Participants set realistic lap goals based on age and development. Drinks and lunch will be provided, and each participant will receive a token of participation.

Their goal is to help the fundraising committee raise at least $6,000 for their chapter’s Education Fund.  They hope that families will join together to participate in the walk-a-thon to the best of their ability. If each family or participants raises $300, they will achieve their goal. They’re hoping to make this walk-a-thon the best ever, so the more contributions raised, the more successful they’ll be at achieving their goal.


  1. Participants may start collecting pledges as soon as they receive the pledge sheets. Remember: Pledge sheets need to be turned in on walk-a-thon day.
  2. Pledges may be made by anyone. Please ask everyone who pledges if their company has a matching gift policy.
  3. Each sponsor making a pledge should write their own name, pledge per lap, and maximum pledge. Participants should collect the pledge in advance but must keep pledges until all are collected. Receipts are available for participates to fill out and give to pledges.
  4. Each lap is approximately 2 miles. Each participant will be issued a “lap tag,” which will be punched each time the participant reaches the starting point, thereby keeping track of the number of laps completed.
  5. Upon completion of the walk-a-thon, participants will hand in their lap tags. A volunteer will record each participant’s lap total on their pledge sheet and return it. Participants will be responsibility for collecting outstanding pledges. Please return pledge sheets with the money to PARI Seattle, 2800 1st Ave. Seattle, WA 98121 by June 10, 2016.
  6. No running or jogging will be allowed. Participants are encouraged to wear hats and sunscreen if it’s sunny or bring rain gear if it’s rainy.

APRI looks forward to all participants having a great time! For questions, concerns, or to volunteer, call Gabriel Prawl at 206-770-7697.
