Walkathon

The annual walkathon at St. Thomas More Collegiate is the school’s largest student fundraiser and is a much anticipated tradition that showcases STMC’s vibrant school spirit and the school community’s generosity and commitment to living the Essential Elements of an Edmund Rice Christian Brother Education.


On Friday, October 7, 2016, the students of St. Thomas More Collegiate donned red day attire and participate in the annual walkathon through Burnaby in order to raise money to enhance the school community and provide outreach.

The goal for this year's event is to raise $60,000 to support the following student selected projects:
  • A new print system that will allow students to print from virtually any device - school computers, personal laptops and tablets, Chromebooks, and phones - to STMC B&W and colour printers
  • At least one additional mobile Chromebook lab
  • Extended coverage for the student-dedicated WalkathonKnights WiFi in the front foyer and the second floor of the fine arts wing (and in more areas if we exceed our goal)
  • Special event curtains for pep rallies and awards ceremonies 
  • Bursaries 
  • Missions
  • Additional projects will be selected by students if we exceed our goal

Additional projects that will be chosen by the student body in September – examples of past initiatives include contributing to the new athletic facility, courtyard tables, grad activities and upgrades to student facilities. In order to reach our goal each student needs to raise a minimum of $80.

We are excited to partner again with chimp.net to offer students the ability to do their fundraising online this year! Fundraising continues till the end of October: however the cut-off for the Top 10 Student Fundraisers is Friday, Oct. 14 at 4:00pm, and the deadline to get a Walkathon t-shirt (for those who will have fundraised $80) is Friday, Oct. 21. Students and parents can send their personal link to family and friends via email or any social media platform.

Our special matching promotion from chimp.net has been incredibly successful, with all of the available funds offered by chimp.net having now run out. Thank you to everyone who took advantage of this truly generous offer, and especially to chimp.net for their whole-hearted support of our STMC Walkathon.
