About Race for Education

This exercise-inspiring event is a  “lap-a-thon” in which each student, Preschool through 8th, runs, jogs, walks, however they can, to get around a quarter mile track for an hour. The challenge also involves obtaining tax-deductible donations by contacting friends, relatives, employers, etc. to sponsor your student as he or she "races" laps around the course.  Families and friends are encouraged to come to stadium on the day of the race to show their support for the students as they participate.

Most of our fundraising events average 70% school family participation…that is not enough. We need ALL of you to get involved and do your part.

We are holding our twenty-first annual RACE FOR EDUCATION on October 19th this year and this gives you another chance to get involved in your child’s educational experience and help with raising money for St. Joan of Arc School.

We are encouraging 100% participation.  The school goal this year is to raise $30,000.00!  We encourage each family to set a goal of $200.00.  We CAN reach or beat our goal with TEAMWORK!  It’s time to do YOUR part to help our school meet its goal.

Everyone will receive a Free RACE FOR EDUCATION t-shirt and one RAFFLE TICKET for every $50.00 raised

 The more raffle tickets you earn the better your chances of winning one or maybe more of the fantastic prizes that will be offered.  Winning tickets will be drawn in January!  Look for future announcements regarding prizes…

There are great school-wide prizes for meeting our goals!
