Learning Ally is dedicated to helping you stay fit and support students success in a fun and easy way. Register to participate in our Steps for Student Success program bringing parents, teachers, students and community together to raise funds and awareness for students who struggle to read the printed word.

Preparing for a marathon, half marathon, or just looking for ways to get fit and use your fitness device? Join Learning Ally’s Steps for Student Success virtual walk/race. Register to run/walk for various levels to help you get fit all while raising awareness and funds for student success. It’s easy!

Ways to Create Your Own Walk Event

Register and create your personal fundraising page, select a distance, and start walking.

Register as an individual walker/runner, get your friends and colleagues together and create a team, or join an existing team. Tell your friends how you are taking steps in support of student success and ask them to make donations through your personal fundraising page and cheer you on as you reach your fitness goals. Share pictures of your progress with your social media networks and challenge your friends and colleagues to join you.

All registered walker/runners will receive a Learning Ally t-shirt. We’ll also send you a certificate of completion once you achieve your fitness goals. Plus other prizes for our most active registrants. You can uplift countless struggling students and put them on the right track for success.
