Action at school > Sponsor walk
Fund raising for Foundation Ukunda Schools Project.
school De Wadden will organize / organized a charity walk in June 2006.
On this page you can read how you can organize a charity walk
Students will have 2 weeks to find as much sponsors as possible.
Sponsors have the choice to pay students per round or to pay them when
they succeed in finishing the charity walk.
Names of the sponsors will be noted on a special form; if the form is
full with names, then the student can get more forms.
We organized a similar charity walk in March 2004 and then we were able
to raise 2.585,55 euro.
Hopefully we will raise more money next time for the schools in Kenya.
The money will be donated to FUSP and they will use it to buy text
books, pens, notepads and to renovate classrooms, build new classrooms
and for desks.
How can you organize a charity walk
for your school?:
If you want to organize a charity walk, then you need to keep some
things in mind:
To think about :
First you need to get permission
Discuss what you want to do: walk,
ice-skate, bike, etc.
Be sure parents know what the kids will
do and get their permission
Think about strategies how you can
persuade people to become your sponsor
Try to get as much as possible sponsors:
parents, family, neighbors, etc.
Show sponsors the official form from the
school, so they will know it is an official activity
Explain to people what you will do for
If they are willing to sponsor you, then
write down their names and let them sign your form
Don't stop too early... keep searching
for new sponsors
At the end of the two weeks before the
charity walk, you turn in the forms to your teacher
be patients till the great moment: the
day of the charity walk.
After the charity walk you collect the
money from the sponsors and you give it to your teacher.
We got permission from our teacher to show
you the forms we use for our charity walk: sign in forms, the
route, the time-cards, etc.
It is in Dutch alas, but maybe you can
translate it with online translators into your own language.
Then you can adjust the information for your
own situation at your school.

This was the way we organized our former charity walk.
The reason to held that charity walk was to raise money for the Ukunda
If you organize it well, then you can raise a lot of money for your
charity project. There are other ways to raise money, of course, but a
charity walk is easy to organize and it generates a lot of money.
So, in conclusion: we hope we gave you enough
guidelines to organize a charity walk on your own school and we hope you
will donate the money to FUSP.
