About Hill Mile

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our 6th Annual Hill Mile event has been cancelled. Our need to raise funds for student financial aid continues. Thank you for supporting our commitment to student financial aid with a gift today!


The Hill Mile is a one miler run/walk and Kids’ Dash that raises funds in support of the Wendy B. Speir Student Financial Aid Fund. Our 5th Annual Hill Mile raised over $70,000 and welcomed over 450 registrants. Student Financial Aid is an ongoing need at Hill School. All proceeds from Hill Mile support the Wendy B. Speir Student Financial Aid Fund allowing more students to access the life-saving education Hill School provides!

How Your Support Makes a Difference

Hill is raising money for student financial aid. Why?

  • Each year Hill School distributes aid based on demonstrated financial need. In 2019-20, approximately $354,000 was awarded in financial aid to 24% of enrolled students. But we need to do more.
  • Each year admitted students decline enrollment to Hill School because their financial aid award simply wasn’t enough. We want to increase aid packages and reach more students.
  • Ultimately we want a world in which no family declines Hill enrollment due to financial aid.

Why Participate?

Hill Mile is a day to celebrate our entire community.

  • We unite teachers, students, parents, community supporters for a day of fun, movement, and joy!
  • A one mile run or walk is an achievable distance for all ages and abilities. The event is chip-timed but you are only racing if you want to race!
  • The adorable Kid's Dash is a highlight for all. Watch with delight as the determined 10 & Under make their way around the track!
  • Food trucks, activities, crafts, and camaraderie make it a day to remember!
  • IMPACT! Each year admitted students decline enrollment to Hill School because their financial aid award simply wasn't enough. We need to do more!
