Walk & Bike-a-thon

Our fall fundraiser finds families outdoors, exercising and enjoying nature, good food and the great company of our fellow Delphi Dragons. Mark your calendars, tune up your bikes, grab your helmets and get ready to ride!

This event is enjoyable for the whole family - kids, parents and even grandparents. It is not a race, but a fun gathering of Dragons with three different tracks to ride, walk or run along at your own pace.

Students ride at the Delphi Bikeathon.

Prior to the Walk/Bike-a-thon, students gather pledges by the lap or with flat sums, aiming to generate $200 for the school. This year, we are raising money for a quality list: new playground, improvements to our transportation fleet, building improvements, technology and other learning tools. (See your Back to School booklet for the full breakdown).

Students turn in their pledges to the front office, then show up with their families at the Walk/Bike-a-thon. If riding, participants MUST have bikes and helmets. We do have a "fix-it" station should bikers encounter a flat tire or need a seat adjustment, etc.

Outdoor fun.

From 9:00 am - noon, bikers and walkers travel set routes and parent volunteers keep track of their laps by marking their tags after each pass. Exercise is not mandated -- anyone can stop and rest in our shaded picnic area and enjoy fresh fruit, salty snacks and water at any time. At the end, for those who were pledged by the lap, the lap count on the student's tag shows what they accomplished.

We then pause from noon - 1:00 pm for a barbecue and raffle.

Students relaxing together.

Each year, families find this an enjoyable way to kick off the new year, meet other Delphi families and enjoy a good time together while helping the school. Help our Delphi Parent Association by participating and by volunteering for the jobs available that you will see on Parent Square.

Go Dragons!
