The Annual Shark Walk is Severn River Middle School's primary fundraiser. The PTSO uses all funds raised to do fun things, events, and provide support for the students and teachers throughout the year. This year, the event will be virtual. We were unable to host a fundraiser last year, so this is a big fundraising year for our school! Your support truly makes a difference

When is the Virtual Shark Walk?

Shark Week will take place on the date(s) of your choosing over a total of one week's time:

Sunday, Oct. 17 - Sunday, Oct. 24.

You have the flexibility to choose your own date(s) and we encourage you to walk/run as many times as you want!

Where Will the Shark Walk Be Held?

You can choose your location (ex. your neighborhood, B&A trail, College Pkwy trail, Broadneck HS track, etc.). The B&A Trail and College Pkwy Trail will have Shark Walk signs. Take a selfie by a sign and post to the SRMS PTSO Facebook page! Students can hunt for a hidden shark along these trails each day!

How Can You Submit Donations?

Ask friends, neighbors, co-workers, and family to make a flat-rate donation on behalf of your child to Severn River Middle PTSO.

All donations are tax-deductible. SRMS PTSO is a 501(c)(3) so if you, family, or friends work for companies that match donations, you can double or triple a gift to the PTSO! You can also reach out to businesses directly to ask for donations. A $500 donation or more will earn them recognition!

Donations can be made online here! Just click the link below! Please also make sure to fill out the Google Form in addition to making your payment so we can credit your student and enter them into the raffle if eligible!

If you are not able to or do not wish to use the online payment method, you can send in cash or a check to the Main Office and just note it is for the Shark Walk and please include your student's name!

What Can Students Earn for Raising Donations?

We encourage 100% participation in this fundraiser! For every $50 a student raises by Oct. 24, he/she will be entered in a raffle to win some awesome gift card prizes!
