2008 Sammamish High School Walkathon
The 2007 Walkathon was a wonderful celebration of student involvement and community camaraderie. It was an event that seemed impossible to duplicate.
But this year, the SHS students, under the leadership of Sarah Reed and Sarah Dingman, not only matched last year's event, but expanded on it! (And this was in addition to two showings of "Darius Goes West," that they'd held prior to the Walkathon!)
There were the people. (Over 1500 people attended the event.)
Here are pictures from the 2008 Walkathon.
Thanks to Benjamin Szymanski from Blanchet HS for taking these photos.
(A grandmother's editorial note... If we could harness the energies, smarts, and savvy of these amazing SHS students and put them as leaders in Washington DC or Olympia, we'd get so much accomplished!)
