Christ the Divine’s ‘Panther Prowl’ brings in nearly $8,000 for Aspinwall school

Students at Christ the Divine Teacher Catholic Academy hosted the “Panther Prowl” walk-a-thon at the Aspinwall Riverfront Park on April 2, 2019.

Students at Christ the Divine Teacher Catholic Academy blew bubbles, hula-hooped and snapped pictures at Aspinwall Riverfront Park on April 12, all in the name of raising money for their elementary school that sits just blocks away.

The first-ever “Panther Prowl” walk-a-thon involved students soliciting pledges for walking around the park’s track and taking some time to have fun, too, said Katie Lovett, director of marketing and admissions.

“They got tattoos with the school logo, snapped pictures in a CDTCA personalized frame and blew bubbles,” she said.

“It was a great new fundraiser for us, which also incorporated the town of Aspinwall.”

Fundraising efforts brought in nearly $8,000, Lovett said.

Elissa Tunno, the parent-teacher-guild president, said the inaugural event allowed students to take advantage of the waterfront park, which is a town gem.

“The students enjoyed the park on a Friday afternoon, all while raising money for their school,” she said.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
