Walk with Purpose Student Committee

Though you may have previously known us as Walk the Walk, we are now known as Walk with Purpose.
Yes, we may have a new name but we are still the same committed team of students that strive to connect with and make a difference in the lives of patients going through cancer treatments.
The name Walk with Purpose better suits our mission and goals.

Celebrating the 22nd annual all-school community service event

The Walk with Purpose is an annual student-led event to benefit pediatric cancer research.
Our goal is to increase attention and support for cancer awareness through many activities. This past year the committee, chairs, and co-chairs have created new and innovative events.

A meaningful experience for the cancer patients

We have worked tirelessly to do as much hands-on work as possible.
  • Teamed up with the middle school knitting club in order to distribute the knitted blankets and hats to patients going through chemotherapy.
  • Met with nurses and created plans to be as connected as possible with these patients.
  • Filled bags with candy and treats for the children in treatment. During the Halloween/fall season.
  • Wrote handwritten notes to the doctors, nurses, patients, and families. These personalized notes included jokes, pictures and whatever we could think of to make these important people smile.
This is by far the year we have been the most hands-on, which is a feat considering the current state of everything. We wanted to make this a meaningful experience for these patients and leave a positive lasting impression.

Thank you for your support

To date, we have raised over $900,000 to benefit the Heidi Hewes Chapter of the University of Miami WCA, The Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center - Alex’s Place/Holtz Children’s Hospital, and as of last year we included Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital while focusing on childhood cancer that had directly impacted our school community.
We would like to thank you for supporting our Walk with Purpose in the past and would appreciate your support once again. 

We bring awareness to fighting cancer
