WHAT OTHER ACTIVITIES WILL BE AVAILABLE DURING THE WALKATHON?
Need to take a break between laps? Stop by one of our community-hosted booths, and learn more about all of the ways in which you can get involved at Thornhill: 
  • Book Swap Booth. Bring your gently used volumes to the walkathon, and pick up some new reads as we head into the holiday season. All children's reading levels are welcome—from board books through Middle School. We will be collecting donations, trading books, and handing out good reads to anyone who wants one.
    • In addition, we will be accepting new and used donations for the Thornhill Library. Please check out the Thornhill library's Amazon wish list for ideas.
    • We'd be happy to take books off your hands before the walkathon to pre-seed our swap selection; email our VP of Community Support, Becky Urbano, to coordinate drop-off at school.
  • Concession Stand, hosted by the Dads Club. Bring some extra cash for your hungry walkers! The Dads Club will be serving up some tasty food for all in attendance. 
  • Dessert Bar, hosted by the 4th Graders. Stop by for some scrumptious cookies, cakes, pies, and additional sweet treats (cash only, please). All proceeds will help to offset costs for the annual 4th grade field trip to Coloma Outdoor Discovery School. 
  • Dance Off. Thornhill parent and resident DJ, DJ Noah, will be spinning some tunes to keep our walkers energized.
  • Green Team Tent. Meet members of our Sustainability Team, who will be sharing ideas and raising awareness about how we can reduce waste as a community. 
  • Host a Party Preview. A few upcoming hosted parties will be available for purchase. Lace up your sneakers and bring your credit card to get a head start on all the fun.
  • Livescan Fingerprinting Station. Rëdtomatoës will be onsite from 10am-12pm for parents who still need to be fingerprinted for volunteering at Thornhill. ​​The cost will be $36/person (cash, check or credit card); first come, first served.
  • Lost and Found Racks. Sift through the racks for your lost treasures from 11am-3pm. All remaining clothing will be donated after the walkathon, so please be sure to stop by!
  • Sprit Wear Booth. Stock up on all of the latest and greatest Thunderbird gear, from tees, to hats, water bottles and more!
CAN NON-THORNHILL SIBLINGS PARTICIPATE TOO?
Yes! Bring a minimum of $30 per additional sibling the day of the event, and siblings can get a lap card to walk and earn lap prizes as well.
HOW MUCH MONEY HAVE WE RAISED SO FAR?
Our school goal for this year is $25,000. Get the latest information on your child's progress and our overall school progress on the Dojiggy website (note: there will be a bit of lag time for donations collected offline and event day to get reflected on the overall progress meter)
IS THERE A WAY FOR MY Child TO TRACK OFFLINE DONATIONS ON TheIR ONLINE WALKATHON PAGE? 
Yes! While logged in to your DoJiggy account, click on your child's name in the upper right-hand corner, and select "My Account". From the "My Account" Control Panel, select the "My Page" tab, and the "Donations" menu item underneath that.
