On Wednesday, October 25, 2017, WCA will be holding its annual Walk-A-Thon. Our theme for this year is Just Walk It, which is an extension of our school theme for the year, Just Live It. This is based on the passage found in James 1:22
“Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.” (NIV)
This year, our target is $35,000. As a not-for profit charitable organization, fundraising is a critical part of Wesley Christian Academy’s financial stability. Student tuition covers teachers’ salaries and some basic operational costs. However, maintenance, upgrades to existing equipment and resources, or their complete replacement requires significant outside funding. We are hopeful that the Lord will move the hearts of potential donors to give generously so that we can continue to offer our students the excellent level of support, resources and facilities they have been enjoying at Wesley.
With the money we raise this year, a large portion of it will be used to improve our existing technology offerings. We hope to purchase
- Additional iPads and associated iPad cart
- Laptop computers
Fundraising starts today, Friday, September 22nd and will continue until Thursday, October 12th, 2017. The Walk-A-Thon itself will take place at Wesley on Wednesday, October 25th from 1:40-3:00 PM for the students in SK to Grade 8. Students from Toddlers to JK will be walking at various times in the morning. They will walk different distances for this event, depending on their age. We will celebrate as a community together on that same afternoon from 4:00-6:00 PM with a BBQ in the gym.
Thank you for your support and please continue to pray for Wesley and this special event.
