Assalamu Alaikum dear parents, students, and community members,

Insha Allah, this message reaches you in the greatest health and iman. The National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) has started its first project of the year, the Walkathon! This activity has many purposes and benefits for all.

•To raise money for charity purposes and to cover the NJHS activities.
•To improve our health and habits.
•To build the brotherhood and sisterhood relationships while enjoying some relaxation time during the group event.

1. Anybody can participate. (Note: Attending BHA is not a requirement.)
2. Everyone participating will need to fill the registration form and recruit sponsors – sponsors can be anyone willing to pay for him or her.
3. The sponsor will be donating an amount of money for each mile (ex. $3 per mile).

Donors: A donor can sponsor as many people as they want (ex. an individual, class, club, or the whole event.)

Please use this form to inform us: forms.gle/zAGXUJBzNqNyKXff6

When: Thursday, November 24, until Sunday, November 27. Walk frequently at your convenience during these days.

Where: Walk wherever it’s convenient, whether at a park, neighborhood, or trail during these four days. However, we will organize a big walkathon at De Anza Cove Park on Nov. 24, from 9 am – 11 am. It will be followed by a potluck for whoever can stay after the walking.
