Project Connect Walk-a-thon!

When? Friday, September 30, 2011 from 2PM to 5PM

Where? Education Lounge (Rm. 189) in the Education Building on campus.

What? A 5km walk or run around the Conexus Arts Centre and back.

Who are we raising money for?

The Education Student's Society (ESS) is currently involved in a fundraising initiative geared towards reaching out to community schools in Regina.  With this project we hope to raise enough money to help develop an outreach program for youth, which focuses on social skill development. We firmly believe that this program will significantly benefit the underprivileged youth in Regina by giving the opportunity to build and develop the social skills and confidence, necessary to be an active community member.

Participation Guidelines 

- Teams can consist of 7-15 people

- Each member must collect a minimum of $20 in order to participate.

- Walk will begin at 2PM in the Education Lounge on September 30th. 

- Your team will walk or run around the Conexus Arts Centre and back to the University. Please arrive a little early before the walk if you want to make posters for your team, as well as enter your names into the prize draws.

- Captains must hand in pledge money prior to the walk.

- Prizes will be given for the most original team name, best costumes, most money raised (team and individual). Random give-a-ways will almost be made.
