What programs/resources at Mary Silveira does this event support?
This is our primary and most critical Mary Silveira Home and School Association Fundraiser of the year. The dollars earned directly support so many important MES programs and resources such as chromebooks, ipads, classroom supplies and grants, scholarships, assemblies, garden, and so much more!
What is our fundraising goal this year and how can I help?
Our goal is to raise ($35,000 - 2017---TBD for 2018 this year!) You can help by helping gather pledges from families and friends at work and in the neighborhood. Pledges are for laps students walk or a flat amount. You can now pay using Pay Pal (see below).
