Mercy Walk: The Greatest Walk
Friday, October 12, 2018
The Mercy Walk is a long-standing tradition at Mercy since the 1980s and our major student fundraiser. This year, the Mercy Walk raised $91,186.59, a HUGE 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 1,254 pounds of food), 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.
As a school, we raised $65,000 to earn a day off school on Friday, October 19, and $68,000 to enjoy spirit wear Mondays for the rest of the school year!
If you have any questions about the walk, please contact Valerie Alexander Downs '99 in the Advancement Office.
