17th Annual Walk for Education - Biggest Ever!

Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's Walk for Education. The 17th annual Walk, organized by the Public School Foundation, was the largest to date with an estimated 8,000 participants.

School mascots, marching bands and many others gathered at McCorkle Place on the UNC campus on Saturday, October 5. Aaron Keck, this year's emcee and on-air personality from WCHL, eloquently entertained and informed walkers as they prepared to line up for the march down Franklin Street.

The Walk ended at Lincoln Center, where an enormous carnival took place, covering the front lawn, soccer field and parking lot. Participants enjoyed giant inflatable slides, obstacle courses, face painting, a dunking booth, and much more.

It was a great day - over $125,000 was raised.

We appreciate our Public School Foundation and all who helped make this day a very memorable event.
