About this Campaign

We are excited for our upcoming 12th annual Prescott Community Walkathon!

Its main purpose is to serve as a fundraiser for Prescott School and Prescott Park, in particular investments into the award-winning outdoor classroom and greenspace. For our children, this is an excellent opportunity to turn dreams into reality. You can help by donating a set dollar amount of your choice in exchange for the kids/classes completing the walk.

We are grateful that our community has long provided strong support for Prescott School & Prescott Park. Last year’s Walkathon was cancelled due to COVID-19 so Prescott is excited to bring the tradition back! Will you consider becoming a sponsor?
Our annual goal is to raise $10,000 in donations.

Can we do it again?

OF COURSE WE CAN!



The Walkathon has been highly successful! Participants collectively walk more than 1,000 miles each year. We have met our successive fundraising goals and most recently that included a multi-year fundraising campaign for installation of 19 lights throughout Prescott Park to improve safety and extend time of use for the outdoor space. Other past projects included an outdoor Maker Space (2016) that now includes the creative arts (marimbas, instruments, infrastructure improvements in 2017); support the redesign of the large playfield for multipurpose use (2015); construct a fossil dig with a saber-toothed cat (2014); and implement an adjacent prairie landscape (2013). Prescott has earned the prestigious Green Ribbon Award from the U.S. Department of Education, and been recognized by the Arbor Day Foundation and Dimensions Foundation, for its strategic and extensive use of the outdoor classroom. Other Prescott Park amenities funded with corporate and community support include a community garden, gazebo, clatter bridge, arbor-covered entry with the Prescott Park logo cut in brick pavers, and a science discovery area with weather station and giant compass-shaped flagstone floor.

This year, our theme is the Flora and Fauna of Prescott Park! Your donations will support the installation of various flora and fauna habitat features like birdhouses, birdfeeders, bat houses and pollinator areas throughout Prescott Park. This will provide students and teachers an opportunity to talk about urban wildlife and the importance of pollinators through class projects. We will also perform maintenance on the “one of a kind” local artist made saber-toothed fossil as it shows wear and tear after 7 years of exploration. Funds raised in the 2021 Walkathon will facilitate our goal to support Flora and Fauna of Prescott Park! With your help, we hope to raise $10,000 for Prescott Park between all our fundraising platforms.
