Walk for One Promise to make a stop at Phillips
Walk for One Promise, a grassroots fundraiser shining a light on the Pittsburgh Promise, will make a stop at Pittsburgh Phillips at approximately 1 p.m. on October 18.
The 13-mile Walk for One Promise features individuals and teaks completing the route for pledges of donations. Over the course of the day, walkers will stop at six Pittsburgh schools with a mini-rally planned at each stop.
Principal Martin Boonstra is encouraging Phillip’s families to come to the rally, planned for approximately 1 p.m. to represent the school. Since Phillips is on the last leg of the walk, they expect Mayor Peduto and County Executive Fitzgerald along with the Pittsburgh Public Schools Superintendent, Pittsburgh federation of Teachers president and other community leaders.
The Walk for One Promise will finish at approximately 2 p.m. at Pittsburgh Science and Technology Academy with closing remarks and a finish line cook out. Students, families and supporters are welcome at the cook out for student performances, food, bounce houses and kids’ activities.
