5th Annual MEF Walk-A-Thon brings out nearly 100 participants!
The Merrillville Education Foundation sponsored our fifth Walk-A-Thon on October 8, 2022, at the Merrillville High School Soccer/Track and Field Area.
Many thanks to all who came out for the event on a beautiful and brisk fall morning! We had close to 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
- MHS Athletic Department for helping coordinate the event
- Sean Roche of the MHS Graphic Arts Department for creating the T-shirts, posters, and the Thank You banner
- Volunteers from the Merrillville High School Cheerleaders for giving of their time
- Merrillville Education Foundation Board Members for doing what it takes to make it a success
Also, congratulations to Salk School for having the most participants and winning the traveling trophy for one year!
