“Walk Around Mars” to Raise Funds for Schools

Walk Around Mars! Mars Planet FoundationMars Bank is sponsoring the Mars Planet Foundation’s virtual “Walk Around Mars”. The walk’s goal is to have participants track their miles and together reach 13,263 miles – the circumference of the red planet.
The virtual walk is raising money to:

  • Provide teacher grants to enhance the learning opportunities of students in the Mars Area School District, and 
  • Fund scholarships for students to continue their education beyond their Mars Area experience.

Students at each school in the district are participating in the six-week walk with the winning school taking home the “Walk Around Mars” trophy sponsored by Mars Bank. We’re pleased to be sponsoring an event that will get kids outside and walking while raising money for education.

Stop by the Mars office at 145 Grand Avenue and snap a photo with Marty the Martian who will be peering out a window of the bank! Get a selfie with Marty and share it on social media with #WalkAroundMars and tagging @MarsBankPA.
