2018 Booksin Walkathon - Saturday, October 13, 2018

Thank you for a FANTASTIC Walkathon 2018!

Our event on October 13, 2018 was a huge success thanks to our generous donors, our hard working students, and our faithful volunteers.

See you next year!

BESCA has held our annual Walkathon for over 30 years. This tradition is one of the most loved events at Booksin. Students walk all day to raise money for Booksin through pledges and to earn prizes for the miles they walk. It's an all day party for our community that includes over 800 children and their families!

Over 95% of our funding for the year is raised at the Walkathon event. It is the one event each year we ask every student and family to participate in helping us raise money to support the many programs and events that enrich our students. 


Our walkathon funds BESCA. How does BESCA support Booksin? 

BESCA is our school's version of a parent-teacher organization. It stands for Booksin Elementary School Community Association. San Jose Unified School District (SJUSD) does not have adequate funding to provide programs such as art, music, science labs, and garden. BESCA provides funds for these programs, supports field trips, and provides funds for teachers to use in their classrooms.  BESCA's main source of funding is our annual Walkathon event.


Thank you for supporting Booksin through BESCA!
