2023 Walk-a-thon!

Friday, Sept. 22, 2023

This is an event for the whole family! Our beloved event promotes school spirit, physical fitness, and a sense of accomplishment for the students. This year, it’s all about celebration for the Bennett Valley Alliance of Parents and Teachers (BVAPT) as they continue to support the students, teachers and staff of Bennett Valley Union School District.

After collecting donations from family and friends, students will walk the track at their school during the school day on September 22.

Then at 4:30pm, the Walking on Sunshine Afterparty starts with fun for the whole family! Enjoy a live band, jump houses, obstacle courses, games, activities, local food, raffles, and more!

What does the Walk-a-thon help fund?

The Walk-a-thon helps BVAPT fund programs such as: field trips, assemblies, library, technology, computers, teacher stipends, playground equipment, and much more!

Tickets for our raffles baskets and fun zone will be available for purchase at the Walking on Sunshine After Party. Cash, card, and PayPal will be accepted at the event. Wristbands for unlimited access to the fun zone are $20 each. Individual tickets to the fun zone are $2 each.
