This year, Walk-A-Thon money will be used towards the Marcus Lemonis and Mario Sueiras Center for Science & the Arts and supporting the Marist Mission. Participants will also get 5 service hours.
 
On Monday, March 1, 2021, Walk-A-Thon will officially kick off and the walk will be held on Friday, March 26!

Do note: The Walk-a-thon and the Columbus Development Program are two separate fundraisers. The Development Program is the only program eligible to accept matching gifts.

      As a Catholic school, Christopher Columbus High School takes our call to be mindful of those less fortunate very seriously.  In light of this, as well as our own Christian understanding of 'sharing,' a portion of the Walk-a-thon funds will be distributed to the Marist Mission.
