Giving to Seattle Schools : Move-A-Thon 2013
Giving back to the communities that support us is always a treat. One such splurge is the annual John Hay Elementary School Move-A-Thon held each year in October. So many of our clients and friends attend public schools on Queen Anne , supporting this event is a great way for us to say thank you.
We have been proud supporters of this event for many years and have been so happy to include some of our extended family – Quality Plumbing, Wilson Tile & Shearer Painting – as sponsors. The kids , parents & teachers run laps and raise funds for educational programs. Seems like a small thing but the spirit & camaraderie of the day inspiring.
In the spirit of October there are plenty of colorful hairstyles, silly hats, wigs and costumes donned by all. Teachers really go all out. And the PE teacher decked out in rainbow wig and pink leotard & tutu is always a highlight of the day.
Mr. K, a senior volunteer math tutor at the school for about 16 years….. is there wearing the school colors …. And giving his support in so many ways.
Parents along the course rally the troops and pass out water cups & count laps …. Doughnuts & apple slices for après race… Ms. Erin playing DJ ….. what’s not to love about a good old fashioned Move-A-Thon!!!
