It happens every year. Someone in the office wanders around with a clip board in attempts to get sign ups for their kids' walk-a-thon. But why donate money when you can better your health at the same time?
Many walk-a-thons need volunteer workers, and one of the main jobs that don't get filled are "walking encouragers" for the kids running the good race. These adults are on the track alongside the students, working on keeping their motivation and energy up when they start to get tired.
So not only are you benefitting the walk-a-thon with your financial gift, should you choose to give...you are benefitting your own health and that of participating students by volunteering to get out there and run!
Just a little idea to ponder next time that clipboard comes around...
