300K51N WALKATHON – Saturday 10/23/10

Thank You for a GREAT DAY!
We beat the rain! With 620 kids walking almost 8000 miles, and 400 volunteers working more than 800 hours, we took Booksin to the 23rd Power! Thanks to all Booksin families and staff for making this another successful event. The kids showed the Power in their Numbers, and now it’s your turn: Send in your checks today! Pledge cards came home with the students this week, telling you exactly how much you helped the Booksin community. Please congratulate yourselves and your students, as we thank you for proving once again that Booksin School has no equal!

Thank you! David Keller & PH Mullen , W alkathon Volunteer Co-Chairs
