04/04: 2009 Walkathon a Success!

On Sunday, March 29, 2009, the 3rd Annual RROP Walk-a-thon took place on the track at Saint Mary’s High School in Stockton, CA.  The event was organized by the International Outreach Club (IOC) of Saint Mary’s.  Saint Mary’s students, as well as students from other Stockton and Lodi schools, showing great solidarity,  came to support RROP.

It was an exciting  gathering packed full of  great people: DJ Music provided by Ray Naylor Jr., live music performed by the Lincoln Boyd Band, dancing by the Saint Mary’s Multi-Cultural Club (and other students who joined them from other area schools), an incredible BBQ provided by the Toccoli Family, and all of the parent and other volunteers who made the event and great experience and success.

An estimated 225 people attended and the event raised approximately $14,500!  A special thank you to our Sponsors who are featured in our 2009 Official RROP Walkathon Sponsors’ Banner.

The following pictures were sent by Danielle, the International Outreach Club (IOC) President for the 2008-2009 school year. The photos themselves were taken by Michael of Saint Mary’s High School.

Take care,
