Annunciation Catholic Academy Students Walk for Charity

The entire Annunciation Catholic Academy student body participated in the school’s annual Walk-a-Thon event on Thursday, March 12.


Students of all grade levels enjoyed the day. Elementary students participated by running and walking around a mini track on the Annunciation field. They were encouraged by their classmates and teachers to complete as many as 35 laps! 

As a special tradition, our middle school students enjoyed walking to school down the Seminole Wekiva trail. The students participate in this special walk to remember how students in our Sister Diocese in the Dominican Republic walk such a long way to and from school each day, usually through poor conditions. When they arrived at Annunciation from their walk, the middle school students went on the same mini track and participated in a color run event!

This event allowed our whole school to have fun and use teamwork to raise money for a charity called Feeding Children Everywhere, for which the students of Annunciation Catholic Academy and Annunciation Parish pack thousands of meals each year.

“It was a great day. The kids had fun and, learned the lessons of building good character,” said Mrs. Patricia Kahle, principal.

This day was sure to be one that students and community members will remember for years to come!
