Race for Education

Fourteen years ago, St. Thomas More launched a very successful fundraising program called Race for Education. This program is an opportunity to engage students in a fundraiser that will directly benefit their education. Students solicit friends and family for donations to support them on race day. Students and faculty will walk or jog around a designated area of the school while raising money for new programs to enhance their education.

 

We are so excited to kick-off the 2021 Race for Education! The race will be held on October 20th in our school and church parking lot, as well as leveraging the expanded course from last year which spans around the school. This year’s race will be the same exciting tradition, with a return to a more normal, one-day event. In addition, VCO Orthodontics has generously donated race day tees for all participants! 


This year’s proceeds will be dedicated to revitalizing our Science Lab. Turning a 75 year old classroom into an innovative 21st century science laboratory, with equipment that promotes scientific experimentation and facilitates our STEMcentric curriculum, will serve our students for many years to come.


The STM Pledgestar Fundraising site is up!!!  Last year our school beat our goal by nearly $20,000 and raised over $70,000! Can we raise $75,000 this year?!
