There were 217 people who registered to participate in the recent Walk for Education at the Tewksbury High School Track. But by the end of the day, that number had swelled to nearly 400.

The annual event is a fundraiser for the Dewing and North Street Schools.

The Dewing raised just over $3,400 and the North St. raised almost $,3900.  The event utilized more than 35 volunteers including students from The Self Defense Institute and parents of walkers, administrators, and Honor Society members from TMHS.

In total, walkers covered 740 miles with Tyler C. from 2nd grade walking 50 laps or 12.5 miles to top all other walkers. The TMHS outdoor track is a quarter mile track.

Several businesses and individuals supported the Walk for Education by donating money, supplies or prizes.

Organizers of the event thanked TSDI, Market Basket, Joy Wallace, Perault Creations, Altitude, Orange Leaf, Wachusett Mountain Ski Area, LaserCraze, Tewksbury Federal Credit Union, The Discovery Museums, Roller Kingdom, The Friends of the Tewksbury Public Library and a few generous anonymous donors.

Organizers said that without their support, the event would not have been as successful. All monies generated go directly to arts and enrichment programming at the Dewing and North Street schools.
