With over 1 million students attending Arizona’s public district schools, it is time to stand up, be counted as education supporters and showcase student success.
The Arizona Diamondbacks, Support Our SchoolsAz and public district schools and students will partner together in a Walk4Education on Saturday, Sept.13, 2014, beginning at 2 p.m. at Chase Field, located at 401 E. Jefferson, Phoenix. Registration opens at 1:45 p.m.
“The Walk4Education will measurably move the broad public conversation and perception needle toward greater understanding and support of public district schools as a delivery point of high quality education,” said Doreen Zannis, event organizer and executive director of Support Our SchoolsAz. “We are grateful to the Arizona Diamondbacks and the educational community for their support of this inaugural event and hope to continue for many years to come.”
In baseball terms, First Base will be to view achievements of showcased children, participate in fun family activities, learn from other school districts and share successes from schools throughout Arizona.
Second Base will be the Diamondbacks pre-game activities.
Third Base will be to enjoy the Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Padres baseball game with other families and educators. In addition, it is Paul Goldschmidt Bobblehead day!
Everyone will hit a Home Run by celebrating over 1 million students and families who choose to send their children to Arizona’s great public district schools!
Tickets are only $10 per adult and $5 per child (2-18). Scholarships may be available for those who cannot afford to participate. To register or for more information go www.Walk4Education.com.
