Race for Education

Our annual Race for Education was a tremendous success! We raised $14,000! Your generosity will go a along way as we work toward our goal of a new playground for our students. It was wonderful to see so many kids walking, jogging, and running, and so many parents and family members volunteering.

This event was truly a successful thanks to our amazing OLMCA community. A huge thanks to the sponsors that contributed to our special race. Thank you to all of the parent volunteers that supervised the students, punched holes, and helped serve food. Thank you to the faculty and staff for organizing this wonderful event. I would especially like to thank Mrs. Monica Cirone and her team of teachers for preparing a delicious barbecue! Finally, this event would not have been the success that it was without the support of Mrs. Kathleen Murphy. She spent countless hours to ensure that the race was a success. It certainly was! I am counting down the days until next year’s race!
