Dust off your walking shoes and get ready.  LACHSA Walk for the Arts 2013 is just around the corner!
Friday, November 8 , 10:30 a.m.
Your awesome efforts last year resulted in more than $60,000 in additional funds for all of LACHSA’s art departments.  Our goal is to double that amount in 2013, to $120,000, and with your help we believe we can do it!
For those of you who want to get an early start with the fundraising for 2013, we’ve posted pledge collection forms, instructions, and guidelines under the tab FUNDRAISING KIT.

Instructions for Students


How to Prepare – the Morning of the Walk

  • Go to bed early on the evening before the Walk.
  • Eat a good breakfast the morning of the Walk, including an 8 oz. glass of water, juice, or milk so that you come to the Walk hydrated and energized.
  • Make sure to use the restrooms before the Walk begins.  (There will be restroom stops positioned along the route of the Walk.)


What to Wear Day of Walk

  • All students are asked to wear their LACHSA black T-shirts.  If you don’t own one, you can purchase it beforehand on the morning of the walk.  If not, wear your PE shirt or a black T-shirt.  The point is, we want a unified look of solidarity!
  • Dress comfortably, in shoes that will tolerate walking for two hours.  We’re hoping for cool overcast weather, but wear sunscreen nevertheless, and a hat.


What to Bring Day of Walk

  • Bring your Collection Envelopes with checks, cash, and the pledge drive forms and hand them in to your first-period teacher on Friday.
  • Bring a bottle of water!  This is important.  Additional bottles of water will be supplied half way through the walk.  We’re recycling all the empty bottles.


End of Walk Lunch Party

  • Either bring a bagged lunch,  or bring some money (around $10) so you can purchase food from one of the gourmet food trucks.
  • Lunch will be held in LACHSA Plaza and you’ll be guided there at the end of the Walk.  Several LACHSA student bands will perform.
  • Art classes will take place beginning at 2:00 p.m.


What Not to Bring Day of Walk

  • No electronics allowed during the Walk (that means NO iPods, No cell phones). 


All Students are required to participate in walking unless you bring in a note by Thursday, signed by your parent explaining why you cannot walk.  If you can’t walk, you’ll be assigned to a volunteer post.  A huge thank you for all your efforts in helping to raise funds for LACHSA’s arts programs!  Most importantly, have fun on Friday!


A number of LA's yummiest Gourmet Food Trucks are coming to LACHSA on Friday, November 8th during our lunch party to celebrate the 2013 LACHSA Walk for the Arts.  They'll be here from 12:00 until 2 p.m. and will have some delicious food items available for purchase.  So walk and build up an appetite!  A percentage of their sales will go towards our walk-a-thon!
