Great Strides Walk
You and your family are invited to join the Needham and Chute families on Saturday, May 3rd in the GREAT STRIDES WALK for CYSTIC FIBROSIS in Wisconsin Dells, at the Wisconsin Dells Ducks, located at 1890 Wisconsin Dells Parkway. This walk focuses on raising awareness and taking steps to raise money in order to cure Cystic Fibrosis (CF).
Tucker N., a sixth grade student in our school and Veda C., age 3, have Cystic Fibrosis. Their dads are both teachers in our school. Cystic Fibrosis affects around 30,000 children and adults in the U.S. alone. It is life-threatening and leads to severe respiratory and digestive problems. CF causes the body to make a thick, sticky mucus that clogs the lungs, pancreas, and other organs. We are hoping with our continued fund raising efforts that a cure will be found soon.

You are invited to put together a team to participate in the GREAT STRIDES CF WALK. This is totally up to you and your family. Students in Grades Early Childhood through 8th will need to have an adult on their team. Students in grades 9-12 can form their own teams. Teams can consist of as many people as you want. Attached you will find a pledge form for your team to collect pledges from family and friends. Of course, there is no limit on how many pledges you can collect!
Anyone who collects $100 or more will receive a FREE Cystic Fibrosis t-shirt and other prizes are available for those that collect $250 or more. These are listed inside the Pledge Form as well. ALL CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 18 WILL NEED TO HAVE A PARENT SIGN THIS PLEDGE FORM IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE IN THE WALK.
If you are participating in the Great Strides Walk in Wisconsin Dells, you should take your pledge form and money with you that day. If not, please turn in your pledge forms and money to Mrs. Louis by Thursday, May 1st.
During the walk there will be a rest stop with snacks. At the end of the Great Strides Walk you will have the opportunity to play a FREE round of mini-golf at Timber Falls Adventure Park! Rocky Rococo’s is across the street and you are welcome to go there for lunch at your own expense. You then can walk back or get a ride back on one of the Ducks.
Stay and play after the walk at Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Park! For the LOW Admission price of $10 per person, plus tax, you can spend the afternoon with your family & friends at Mt. Olympus Water & Theme Park! Wow! What a fun-filled day!
