It was a wonderful, positive day. Students, faculty, parents, everyone really showed their St. Ethelreda spirit! The students walked, sang, and danced. Faculty members and parents visited local businesses along the way spreading the word about St. Ethelreda School.

Photographers note: The photos above are only from the beginning of the walk. Unfortunately, my camera ran out of batteries about 15 minutes into the walk. Then, I ran out of batteries about 15 minutes after that. Sorry... just kidding.
