The 3rd Annual Move-a-Thon for Saint Vincent’s Day Home

At Saint Vincent’s Day Home, children learn through movement and play.  This year we’re moving for one healthy, enriching goal: to raise $25,000 for classroom materials!

On Friday, April 30, 2021, the Day Home will be hosting our 3rd annual Move-A-Thon from 9:00am – 5:30pm. We hope you will join us as we celebrate why movement matters!

What is the Move-a-Thon?

The Move-a-Thon is a day-long celebration and fundraiser that promotes the importance of exercise and physical wellness for youth. This year, our theme is Moving with Hope. The Move-A-Thon gives children the opportunity to have fun walking, running, dancing, and playing for the Day Home! All classrooms will have an exciting day filled with fresh air and fun while fundraising for classroom materials.

What does the event support? For safety during the pandemic, each child must have their own set of learning materials. This has drastically increased our expenses for supplies like scissors, crayons, paint, placemats, and other valuable learning items. Your support will directly purchase supplies for a Day Home classroom.

How can I help? 

  • Help a classroom buy learning materials – Head to our classroom fundraising page and click on the classroom you would like to support.  Every contribution from the event will directly purchase classroom materials for the upcoming school year.
    • The classroom with the most support will receive a special Move-a-Thon party!
  • Spread the word – Tell your family, friends, or social networks about the Move-a-Thon and encourage them to join in on the fun! Help us spread the word, so that every class will reach its fundraising goal of $2,500 for supplies.
  • Move with us! – As we are unable to host guests on-site this year, the Day Home invites you to join us in movement! Ask a friend, family member, or co-worker to participate in your favorite exercise activity on April 30th. When you’ve completed your activity, share it with us on social media by posting an image, video, or streaming live, and tagging us @svdh4kids with the hashtags #completed #SVDHMoveAthon and #MovementMatters. You can also share our live stream with friends to spread the fun!
  • Buy a commemorative t-shirt – The Day Home created an awesome t-shirt with Oaklandish for the event. All donations over $75 will receive a commemorative shirt.  Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or LinkedIn for updates!
