Get your walking shoes ready, its time for the St. Bonaventure’s College Walkathon! This year’s Walkathon will take place on Thursday, May 19th.

The St. Bonaventure’s College Walkathon is an annual fundraiser to support a variety of curricular initiatives. Our goal for this year’s Walkathon is $35,000. To reach our goal of $35,000 we have created incentives similar to past years. You can review the prize structure HERE.

The money raised will be used to create new learning spaces in Holland Hall and Mullock Hall. These new spaces will blend learning common spaces with makerspace resources and opportunities so that students have available to them a wide assortment of tech and non-tech tools and machines that they might need to build, hack, fix, create or model solutions for just about any kind of project. The funds raised will allow us to purchase items such as:

  • 3D Printers
  • Spheros indi Educational Robot Student Kits
  • Raspberry Pis (for coding)
  • Ozobots (coding robots)
  • Makey Makey Kits (students will transform everyday items into computer interfaces)
  • Fischertechnik Machine Building Tools
  • Video Production Tools
  • Kinetic Sand
  • Legos
  • Art Carts
  • Standing Desks
  • Flexible Seating
  • and more

These new spaces will help our students to further develop creative, hands-on problem solving and foundational reasoning and build critical skills in fields such as science, technology, engineering, and math.

We are encouraging families to use a Fundraising Page to collect pledges. Donations can be made by credit card and receipts are given electronically right away.

Creating a page is simple, click on the link HERE, then click the Fundraise button and follow the steps.

If you would like to use the paper pledge form you may do so; however, we ask that you send in one cheque for the full amount of the pledges collected to reduce the handling of cash by our staff. The pledge form can be downloaded HERE.

Thank you to everyone in advance for your support.
