Upcoming Kyle-Lenn-Joey Walkathon

April 11, 2014
By KCS Staff
These are the faces of Kyle, Lenn, and Joey. Our annual scholarship walkathon is named in their honor.

During an all-school assembly this morning, we shared the purpose and history of the annual Kyle-Lenn-Joey Walkathon, to be held on Friday, April 25. This is the 34th year KCS will continue to preserve the loving memories of these boys through the Walkathon. Kyle Schumacher, Lenn Kawamura, and Joey Yoshikawa each died of cancer while attending KCS. Since the boys loved their time at KCS, their families wanted to preserve their memory through a Scholarship Fund for students who would not be able to attend KCS without financial assistance. Each year, thousands of dollars are added to the Scholarship Fund through the Walkathon. Last year, students raised over $22,000.

Students raising $80 - 99 will receive a limited edition Walkathon shirt, while those who raise $100 - 149 will also receive a KCS uniform shirt. Students who raise over $150 will be awarded a Walkathon shirt as well as a KCS monogrammed polo shirt. The top 3 fund-raisers will be entered into a drawing for a KCS monogrammed jacket.

On the day of the Walkathon, the younger students will walk around the KCS playground and McKenzie House while the older students will run/jog/walk around the KCS block.

Students were sent home with an envelope today to collect funds. It includes information about each of the boys and the history of the Scholarship Fund that can be shared as students seek pledges.  To support our Scholarship Fund, click here to make a donation.
