It All Started With a Track!
Years ago, The Friends of Hendricks came together to help build a track for our school. Because of the generous support of Hendricks families and Business Partners, The Friends of Hendricks has grown and been able to provide so much more support for our school and to fill in gaps that DCPS budgeting may not allow. During the 2015 - 2016 school year, The Friends of Hendricks was able to positively impact our school by awarding $52,245 in grants to Hendricks Avenue Elementary. The annual Walkathon is the most significant fundraising event towards these endeavors. Last year, our 4th annual Walkathon raised over $60,005!
Walkathon 2017 is in full swing!
When: Saturday, February 25th, from 10:30am-2:00pm, at the HAE track. This is a rain or shine event!
Fundraising Goal: $55,555.55. We can do this!
Principal's Challenge: Principal Healy has challenged the students to walk a cumulative 750 miles!
Big Ticket Item
In addition to awarding grants, each year, The Friends of Hendricks makes a “big ticket item” purchase for the school. This year, FOH's big ticket item will be the purchase of 30 new Lenovo Yoga ThinkPads! These versatile laptops allow students the flexibility to use them either as a traditional laptop, or as a more cutting edge touch-screen tablet!
It is going to be a fantastic Walkathon year, so come be a part of it! Click on Walkathon 2017 for more detailed information regarding the event, including which prizes can be won!
