Friday, April 24 marks the 35th year KCS will preserve the loving memories of Kyle, Lenn, and Joey through the annual 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 $20,300. 

Students raising $80 - 99 will receive this year’s Walkathon shirt, designed by middle school students Sarah Kitamura and Kala’i Fisher. 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 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. Encourage friends and family to be a part of this worthy cause! Donations can also be made online.
