The Minnesota Marathon for Nonpublic Education is a fun and effective way to raise funds, and public awareness for our school. Since 1974, Marathon events have given students, school families, faculty members and others an opportunity to show their school pride while generating important financial support for school programs. With fun events and service projects, the Marathon has served communities while supporting nonpublic education across the state of Minnesota.
WHEN: Friday, October 6, 2017
GOAL: Our goal for our 2017 Marathon is to raise $45,000. Our challenge goal is $50,000. This money is part of our school budget which helps to fund many academic and extracurricular activities. Each student is asked to raise $150 per student or $300 per family in donations or pledges.
SCHEDULE FOR THE AFTERNOON: Parents and younger siblings are invited to join us at 12:30 pm in Murphy Hall. We will begin with prayer, led by Fr. Wilson. The students will then be sent off to begin their walk with the assistance of the Knights of Columbus. At the end of the walk, the students and parents will enjoy a snack in Murphy Hall.
INCENTIVES: The incentives for our students range from out of uniform passes, prizes, special lunches and special prizes in a drawing. The Challenge Goal incentive will be determined soon!
DEADLINES: Money from sponsors are due in the office by Friday, October 27 to qualify for incentives.
