Take-A-Hike

Grabbing cash is harder than it looks.

Grabbing cash is harder than it looks.

The Take a Hike fundraiser held for Marco Island Charter Middle School was a fun event for students which also raised needed funds for the school. The timing, just before mid-term exams and Christmas break, was perfect for letting the kids expend some of the season’s excitement.

Students had family and friends sponsor their ‘hike’ – a walk around the ball field at the school. The Take a Hike organizers didn’t just walk around the field, they lined up for the Macarena, too! Prizes were awarded based on how much money a student raised. There was a Take a Hike party later in the day where kids had a blast trying their hand at with a variety of carnival games. Those students raising the most money had their time inside a money machine where they could grab some real cash money or an ‘Up Day’ pass which allows a student to forego the required school uniform for a day.
