BCS 17th ANNUAL (VIRTUAL) WALKATHON
The week of October 26th to 30th!
Our 17th annual walkathon is going virtual!! We encourage every student to participate, exercise and raise money for the school. At the end of the Walkathon week, we will celebrate our accomplishments all together in costumes and dance through the night! - Moms, we're just kidding!
Step 1: register for free, set a goal and make a pledge
You may register at any time!! But, if you register by Friday, Oct. 2nd, you will have the opportunity to receive a free pedometer before the Walkathon week starts. Students can participate on an Individual Level and on a Team Level for their HOUSE!!! In the registration form, the student can set a personal goal of how many steps they want to walk and pledge an amount to be raised.
You will find Registration Forms for each of your students in you BBC Account. Simply click the button "Register Now!" and scroll down to the "Membership, Spirit Wear and More" section.
To be part of the HOUSE team, make sure your student's house is properly selected at My Account >> Update My Student(s) Info.
Award Prizes for meeting your pledge!
- If you pledge at the bronze level of $40, you can choose to receive a walkathon-logo frisbee.
- If you pledge at the silver level of $75, you can choose to receive a walkathon-logo water bottle.
- If you pledge at the gold level of $100 or above, you can choose to receive a Bullis Bear!
Step 2: track your progress
Each student that registers will be allocated a "Fundraising Page" that the parent/student can customize with a picture, personal message & fundraising goal (available starting Thursday, October 15th for you to start editing in your BBC Account). During the Walkathon Week, the participant will be able to invite friends & family, through social media and emails, to donate towards their goal.
Step 3: accomplish your goal and celebrate
Gifts are accepted throughout the walkathon week on student's fundraising pages or on the team's fundraising pages. Don't worry, we will encourage you to fulfill your pledge! We will end that week of walking with a fun virtual dance party on Friday evening, October 30th. We will raffle gift cards of local restaurants & stores amongst walkers of the winning house! So, mark your calendar and save the evening!!
N.B. Details of the celebration will be shared closer to the event with all participants!
This year, due to distancing, we will rely on participants to show their BCS best behavior and follow the Character Pillars, especially those of RESPONSIBILITY, TRUSTWORTHINESS and FAIRNESS for our virtual walkathon.
