Stepping Towards Success!
Thank you to the thousands of walkers, volunteers and sponsors from across the Archdiocese of Milwaukee who walked in celebration of Catholic education on Saturday, Nov. 2.
With over 7,000 participants, including 200 volunteers, we were able to not only raise awareness of the many benefits of Catholic education, but make a BIG statement about how important Catholic education is in our communities. It really does take One Step, One Soul at a time, to make a difference for families seeking a quality education. Imagine how many more children and families we can impact if Catholic education is more affordable and accessible.
Even though the walk is over, you can continue to support your local school by pledging here! The deadline to pledge is Dec. 15. Keep in mind that what makes this walk unique, is the fact that we gathered as an archdiocesan community and individual schools keep the money they raise to be used for tuition assistance.
Thank you again for your support and dedication to Catholic schools in southeastern Wisconsin.
