Summit for the Planet

(Special Event Images / Graphics) Summit_7thgradegirls135h.jpgWhether you come to walk in support of your favorite nonprofit organization or for ensuing fun, the 8th annual Summit for the Planet Walk-a-thon and Earth Day Celebration offers something for all ages. The celebration will feature solar vehicle races, "eco-carnival' games, live animals, community networking, "green' businesses, live music, and delicious, organic foods!

Planned for Saturday, April 26 from 9:00 am to 1:30 pm (walk-a-thon registration begins at 9:00 am and the walk, promptly at 10:00 am), Summit for the Planet is a free fundraising event to support local environmental and educational organizations.

"It's much better than selling cooking dough or wrapping paper," comments Pamela Blunden, MMS event coordinator and alumni parent. "Organizations are able to retain a higher percentage of the money raised, and it's good for the environment. This format allows people of all ages to spend time together outdoors in a beautiful natural setting, while also raising money for a cause that is important to them!"

Join us on April 26, 2014 for an amazing Learning Expo & fun-filled day!
