The Kid-A-Thon is the School of the Blessed Sacrament Parent Association’s Annual Fall Fitness and Fundraising event. At the Kid-A-Thon, SBS students enjoy a great morning of fitness and fun at a nearby park. Each class rotates throughout several fitness stations, such as baseball, lacrosse, martial arts, soccer and tennis, coached by Kid-A-Thon’s sponsors. SBS students also participate in fun activities, including potato sack races, relay races and tug-of-war. The Kid-A-Thon gives SBS students a chance to have fun playing outside with their classmates, while trying out new sports and activities.
The Kid-A-Thon is also the PA’s primary Fall Fundraising Event. Our fundraising goal this year is $40,000! 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. Due to the generosity of the SBS community, last year, we raised over $34,000! In light of this year's events, 10% of the Kid-A-Thon proceeds will go to Catholic Relief Services and the aide they are providing victims of these disasters. The School of the Blessed Sacrament Parent Association is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization (EIN: 46-3673429) making donations tax deductible.
We also welcome the participation of Parent Volunteers to help organize and set-up the event plus run fitness stations. Parent Chaperones are also requested for each class to assist the students as they ove from the school to the park.
