Walk-A-Thon 2017 Returns October 20th! 

 

We are thrilled to report that thanks to you -our outstanding community!- last year our school surpassed our fundraising goal! Register today to support the Detroit Waldorf School's annual Walk-A-Thon, and help us reach this year's collective goal of $61,000!

The 2017 Walk-A-Thon continues to call on our community in support of the Detroit Waldorf School's mission to provide a rich and dynamic pre-K-8th grade Waldorf education to a geographically, racially, and socio-economically diverse student body from Detroit and across Southeastern Michigan.

Thru the efforts of this fun, student-driven annual fundraiser held each year on Detroit's beloved Belle Isle, donations raised are vital contributions in support of our annual operating cost, capital improvements, and Accessible Tuition Program. We thank you for your support, and look forward to celebrating another 50 years in Detroit!
