14th Annual Walkathon , Sunday October 16th, 2016


Our Annual Walkathon is a cornerstone event in Wolfville, Nova Scotia: just one of the many treasured traditions that mark the beginning of the vibrant harvest season in the Annapolis Valley. In the past decade, our event has drawn more than $465,000 into the Landmark East Bursary Fund – a fund that enables even more local children to attend our school. We are so very lucky to be located in this beautiful corner of the world; a place of growth and nurturing that visibly reflects the values of our school.

Our relationship with the town of Wolfville is incredibly vital to the success of all our fundraising initiatives, the Annual Landmark East Walkathon especially so. As our school grows, so too does the need for student support. This year’s Walkathon will be bigger than ever, with more games, activities, and prizes to be won. Landmark East School has been generously awarded two round-trip flight passes by WestJet to put toward our fundraising goals. These passes can be applied to any of WestJet Airlines’ destinations in North America and the Caribbean, as well as London, Glasgow, and Dublin in the United Kingdom. Raffle tickets to win the passes can be purchased by contacting Mandy Noble at 902-542-2237 x 221 or by email (mnoble@landmarkeast.org); one ticket can be purchased for $10, three tickets for $30, and nine tickets for $50. The names of the raffle winners will be announced on Sunday October 16th.

We look forward to seeing our school’s families and friends, both those returning and new, at the 14th Annual Walkathon on Sunday, October 16. There is no better way to support local students in need to pursue the specialized education they deserve. Landmark East School is committed to changing lives for the better, empowering our students to grow, take risks, and reach their fullest potential.
