The Kid-A-Thon is our school's annual Fall Fitness and Fundraising Event led by the Parent Association. At the Kid-A-Thon, all SBS Students enjoy a great morning of fitness and fun in Riverside Park. This year our students had a great time warming up on the field with Mr. Justin and playing baseball, basketball, lacrosse, soccer, yoga and tennis. They also practiced their martial arts skills, participated in potato sack and relay races and gave it their all at Tug-of-War!
We would like to thank the sponsors of the 2016 Kid-A-Thon, including: the Baseball Center, Kids in the Game Lacrosse & Basketball, Modern Martial Arts, Soccer by Coach Fher, Super Stars Tennis and Pure Yoga.
The Kid-A-Thon is the SBS Parent Association's primary Fall Fundraising Event. In the same way participants in a typical walk-a-thon seek sponsors, SBS students seek the support of family and friends for their participation in this annual fitness event. Last year we exceeded our fundraising goal by raising over $26,000 for our school due to the generosity of the SBS community!
This year record-breaking funds raised by the Kid-A-Thon will make a difference for all SBS Students assisting in the purchase of (i) new athletic equipment to enhance our student's physical education and recess in the Church Hall and (ii) furniture and gardening supplies for the two new rooftop garden spaces.
Thank you to Principal Sliney, Mr. Justin, SBS's Administration and Teachers plus all of the Volunteers and Chaperones who were essential to the Kid-A-Thon's success! We thank you all for your extraordinary support of this year's Kid-A-Thon!
Thank you for making Kid-A-Thon 2016 an outstanding event!
