Walk for a Cause: Supporting Technology and Music Education

February 10, 2017


Life at IXL

On Saturday, February 4, IXL volunteered at the Millbrae Education Foundation (MEF) Walk-A-Thon for the second year in a row! The MEF is a non-profit, parent-run volunteer organization that raises essential funds to provide technology and music education for the 2500+ students in the city of Millbrae. The MEF held a district-wide walk-a-thon this month to raise money for these programs—including IXL, which is used by 3 out of 5 schools in the district.

Despite the overcast weather, dedicated IXL volunteers helped to ensure that the MEF Walk-A-Thon went smoothly by showing up early to set-up, helping with registration and logistics, and even directing traffic!

For Jackson Stodgel, human resources coordinator, the event was “an opportunity to give back to educational communities that utilize IXL Learning.”

Product designer Tyler Beck agreed, saying “I volunteered because I care about the local community and students having access to technology and music programs.” He added that he “enjoyed directing the cars into rows for parking because it felt like a high-stakes game of Tetris.”

Students get moving!

The event was a huge success, raising a phenomenal $95,000 and bringing the grand total for this year’s fundraising to just over $300,000! Over 600 students attended with their families and the strong sense of community spirit was felt by all.

Tim Lee, senior billing specialist and photographer extraordinaire, summarized the event: “I volunteered because the event not only helps the future of the schools, but also celebrates what we have right now and what we can do as a community when we come together for one day to bring joy to everyone involved. As the photographer, I enjoyed trying to capture the spirit of the event through the children’s eyes. Their excitement and joy made my job a lot easier. The hard part was trying to keep up!”
