Race for Education Final Update

Our annual Race for Education was a tremendous success! We raised $16,072! This is just about 80% of our goal. Your generosity will go a along way as we work toward our goal of upgrading our technology lab with new equipment and devices.

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 the parent volunteers that supervised the students, decorated, 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 is due to her leadership that this event has been such a success at OLMCA. We will certainly miss this incredible class parent as Michael graduates and heads to Xavier in the Fall!
