Addams’ annual Cancer Walk – May 1

It’s almost time for Addams’ annual Cancer Walk! This will be taking place outside around the building at Addams during the half day on Wednesday, May 1st from 9:15am – 10:30am. Last year we raised almost $2,000 and we would love to raise the bar even higher this year!
We are selling paper stars, to honor loved ones (survivors and those who have lost their battle) whose life has been affected by cancer, for 50 cents each.  These can be purchased by students in the cafeteria during lunch periods starting April 22nd. All money raised will be donated to Phil’s Friends, which is an organization that supports patients impacted by cancer as well as their family & friends. All students are welcome to attend & families are invited to accompany their children to walk for a cure on May 1st.  Hope to see you there

2019 Cancer Walk

On Wednesday, May 1, 2019, all students and staff at Addams will have the opportunity to help in the fight against cancer by participating in a Cancer Walk. The walk will be held at Addams JHS, rain or shine, during the school day from 9:15 to 10:30am. Students who take part in this event can raise funds from sponsors to help in the fight against cancer. Students will walk laps around the course to demonstrate their commitment to helping others and being a good citizen. We encourage students to bring a water bottle and a snack, especially if they need an extra boost of energy to fully participate in the walk.

This is a great opportunity for Addams students to have a good time with their friends as they participate in a worthwhile cause and take part in this community service activity. Family members are welcome to attend this event and walk with their child.

Please flip over this paper to find a pledge sheet to assist your child in raising donations if they choose to do so. We ask that students NOT go door to door to collect donations. Family and friends could be asked for donations. A donation should be a flat amount for the entire event, no per lap donations, please. Any amount raised will be greatly appreciated. 100% of donations will go to Phil’s Friends, which is an organization that supports patients as well as their family and friends that have been impacted by cancer.

Students who choose to fundraise can turn in donations to the GUIDANCE OFFICE by May 1st. Please turn-in the pledge card along with any money (checks and/or cash) in a sealed envelope with the student’s name written on the front.

Please make checks payable to: Phil’s Friends.

If you or your child has any questions about the walk, please feel free to contact us at 847-357-5900.

Thank you for your cooperation and support in this worthwhile project!  ~Community Crusaders
