Race for Education

Thirteen 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 2020 Race for Education! This year’s race will be the same exciting tradition, but spread out over three days with smaller groups including social distancing protocols for student, staff, and volunteer safety. Our St. Isidore Virtual friends are invited to join their grade on race day or participate in our virtual race option. In addition, VCO Orthodontics has generously donated race day tees for all participants-- both in-person and virtual!
 
This year proceeds will be used for three worthy causes that support Covid-19 safety mitigation. First to build outdoor classrooms/lunchroom. These spaces offer flexibility to hold courses outdoors and give students the opportunity to take advantage of the outdoors for lunch periods. Additional funds will be utilized to update the school water fountains to water bottle filling stations. Donations will also be used to support our teachers in their classrooms as they continue to keep our students safe throughout current world health concerns.
 
The STM Pledgestar Fundraising site is up and we are dedicated to exceeding last year’s goal of $45,000 up to $50,000! Thank you for your support!
 
PledgeStar is a web based fundraising system that makes it much easier for you to request pledges from your family and friends and for them to make secure credit card donations online. It’s fun, it’s easy, and people who use it typically raise twice as much as those who don’t! It takes just a few minutes of your time and it’s so much easier than mailing letters and spending money on postage!
When you finish, the system emails pledge requests to your family and friends, and allows them to make secure credit card donations online. You get notified each time a pledge is made, and you can track your pledge progress online. For current parents of the school community, you may also make donations through your FACTS account. Friends of St. Thomas More, including parishioners, alumni, local businesses or supporters of Catholic education – you can use this link below to contribute to the general RFE fund toward our goal:
