Dear Parents,


We would like to invite parents to our Walk-A-Thon, which will take place in Nanjing Echo-Forte International School from 9:00am-12:50pm on Friday, October 23. The Walk-a-thon is an activity where students walk to raise funds for a charity. All parents and guests are welcomed to attend and join our meaningful event.


This year we have decided to donate all the proceeds to “Junzi Disabled Home (君子残疾之家)”, which is a professional organization specializing in the care and shelter of disabled people. As we have informed in the previous letter, students will raise funds for this charity on their own by looking for sponsors, doing other fund-raising activities and/or donating their own allowance.


In addition, to raise more funds, our students will prepare food. Each team will make their own food and sell it to students, parents and/or guests. Again, all the proceeds from the food will be donated to “Junzi Disabled Home.” Please be sure to have money on hand that day for buying food in support of this Walk-a-thon’s fundraising goals.

On that day, we ask students to wear clothes that match with their team color. Also, upon arrival, parents and guests are required to check their body temperature and present their green code (Su Kang Ma, 苏康码). If a parent/guest’s temperature is 37.3℃ or above, has cough, stomachache, etc., or does not have a green code, he/she will not be able to join the event. Please be ready to prepare for your green code in advance, and if you or your child has any abnormal symptom(s), please stay at home.


Moreover, on that day, students will come to school at a regular time but will return home at an earlier time. Parents may take the school bus to come to school and return home if the seats are available on the school bus (Unfortunately, there are no seats available on Xianlin bus). Guest cannot ride the school bus, only parents. If you cannot come to the Walkathon, please make sure that you pick up your child at the assigned place and time.


Thank you for your continued support and we are looking forward to seeing you soon!
