2017 Inaugural MEF Walk-A-Thon a success!
The Merrillville Education Foundation sponsored its first Walk-A-Thon on a beautiful Saturday morning on September 16, 2017. A million thanks to all who came out to participate! We had nearly 100 participants, and it was a tremendous success. Everyone got some good exercise, many prizes were given out, and a fun time was had by all. We would like to thank the following people for their generosity and support:
- Merrillville students, families, and staff for raising money and coming to the walk
- Merrillville teachers, support staff and principals for spreading the word
- Business and community sponsors for giving donations and prizes (see below)
- MHS Athletic Department for helping coordinate the event
- MHS Graphic Arts Department for creating the posters, banner, and t-shirts
- Volunteers from the Merrillville High School STAND Club, the Freshmen Mentor Program, MHS Cheerleaders, and MHS Concession Stand for giving of their time
- Bernardino Perea and Terrell Taylor for the great photos covering the event
