What Pass the Baton schools receive: Once you confirm participation by e-mail, we’ll deliver a Really Big Running Shoe to your school… so you can catch all those Toonies! Pass The Baton pledge sheets, a B&W poster and morning announcements can be downloaded from this page.
How to run a Pass the Baton event
A school can do its “Pass the Baton” during a scheduled Track & Field Day. Or, pick another day that’s more convenient. If you are a high school why not organize grade competitions during a designated period to see which grade can accumulate the most laps on their track. No track? No problem; get creative and maximize student participation in other ways. Ultimately, it’s about Tossing a Toonie – and getting as many people as possible to pledge their support for literacy!
What to do with your Toonies
We suggest schools write a cheque equivalent to the amount raised. The payee is: “OneWorld Schoolhouse Foundation.” Our address is: OneWorld Schoolhouse Foundation, 77 Suffolk Street West, Guelph, ON N1H 2J3.
