Mercy Walk: We Walk
Friday, October 12, 2018
The Mercy Walk is a long-standing tradition at Mercy since the 1980s and our major student fundraiser. In 2017, the Mercy Walk raised $76,731.39, a new record for Mercy! All proceeds from the Walk go to Mercy's tuition assistance program, giving more young women the opportunity to attend Mercy.
The day is jam-packed with our Dare to Care Food Frenzy (which brought in 778 pounds of food in 2017), Mercy Family Feud, an awards ceremony, a walk through the neighboring community, a pizza party and, of course, tons of school spirit! Leading up to the walk, students participate in the walk kickoff, penny competition and hallway decorating contest.
Each student has their own fundraising web page at www.mercyacademywalk.com. They must raise $65 to participate. Offline donations are also accepted. Click here for the form.
If, as a school, we raise $65,000, we earn a Walk Holiday October 19. If we raise $68,000, we will enjoy spirit wear Mondays for the rest of the school year.
Students are also eligible for a variety of incentives and prizes. Click here to view the full incentives list.
If you have any questions about the walk, please contact Valerie Alexander Downs '99 in the Advancement Office.
