Walk-a-Thon Event Day

Walk-A-Thon Event Day

NCA Walk-a-Thon Event Day – Thursday, June 10th

It’s Walk-a-Thon time! It is an exciting event and we have been busy preparing for an amazing Walk-a-Thon. NCA families and students have done their part of raising the funds, and now it’s time to WALK! 
This year will look different, and thank you in advance for your help and understanding of our Covid restrictions and schedules.

Below are details of how we are doing the Walk-a-Thon this year.

  •  Parents will not walk with students, but you are invited to park in the parking lot around the perimeter – bring lawn chairs, cheer on the students with noisemakers, bubbles, pom poms – No squirt guns or water devices.
  • Please team with us and wear your mask for this event if you are attending. See the attached map for parking.
  • Our parking lot gates will close 5 minutes before each walk and remain closed for the entire walk (approx. 45 minutes).
  • Vehicles will not be able to leave the parking lot during the walks.
  • Students will walk in current cohort classes and be intentionally spaced along the Walk-a-Thon course.  Students will be asked to wear their masks
