Are You Ready? TWO DAYS until the Miles for Mayer WALKATHON!


Are You Ready?  TWO DAYS LEFT until the Miles for Mayer WALKATHON on June 9th!


Dear Mayer families,

Just two days until the Miles for Mayer Walkathon! 

A few final reminders before we hit the track:

Fundraising: We’re sweetening the Sweet Mandy B’s deal for our kids to help encourage them to fundraise: classes now must get two donations per child to get their cupcake reward! There’s still time to help your child hit their goal!  Whether $5 or $100, every donation counts.

CLICK HERE to donate and ask donors to check the box for your class at check out.

Volunteers: We can’t pull this event off without you!  We continue to look for volunteers, especially in the afternoon, to help make the Walkathon day, and the after party, a huge success for our kids.

CLICK HERE to sign up!

Water bottles: Be sure to pack a filled water bottle so your student can stay hydrated while respecting the environment and keeping cup use to a minimum. 

T-shirts: THANK YOU, the first round of Oscar Mayer spirit wear pre-sales was very successful – in both spirit and support of FOM!  We look forward to seeing everyone’s Mayer spirit on Friday at the Walkathon.  Oscar Mayer Spirit Shirts will be sent home with students tomorrow.  If you have more than one room number, the order will go home with the student in the first room number listed.  If you are interested in purchasing additional sizes of either shirt, or making exchanges in sizes, both will take place at the walkathon spirit table as well.  Any issues with your order please email mayermagnet@gmail.com or come visit the booth June 9th.

After party: The Walkathon after party will be held at Lakeshore Sport and Fitness at 1320 W. Fullerton. Only children and adults with wristbands will be admitted.  No wristbands will be sold at the event. Parking is limited at LSF. Please walk if possible. Also, parents are responsible for the supervision of their children at all times.

For your convenience (and shorter lines at the after party), employees from LSF will be at the Walkathon selling food and drink tickets in advance of the after party!  Cash only please to purchase in advance.

Sponsors will be at the Walkathon: Stop by to check out the sponsors who have generously donated to Mayer this year!

In addition to Exercise Coach, Mathnasium, Core4Skills, Sheffield Neighborhood Association, Galileo and Innovative Express Care …

Mother Nurture will be giving free massages, Floriole will be selling coffee and pastries, and Hakka Bakka will be selling Indian kati rolls.  Cash only to purchase.

Looking forward to a fun day for our kids while raising vital funds for our school!

See you on the track!
