Race for Education Update 5.13.21

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Many thanks to all those who have helped make a great start for our 14th Annual Race for Education! Thanks to your generosity we are more than 75% of the way toward our goal of $15,000 to fund new purchases for our Parish Hall’s lighting and audio. Congratulations to Lucas Holloway, Oscar Espinosa, Noah Edmond, and Morgan Dougherty for leading the way with the most paid sponsorships so far! 

Just a few reminders: the next early return day is Monday, May 24th. Return your sponsorship form with a minimum paid donation of $25 and receive 2 NUT cards!!  Please remember to return sponsorships as soon as possible. If you returned a pledge sheet, please begin to collect payments and send in as well. Remember every little bit helps!  Our goal is to have every student return at least 1 sponsorship!

We have a new incentive!! 

The first class that has 100% fundraising participation will get to dump buckets of freezing cold ice water over teachers and staff of Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Academy on the race day!

We are also looking for volunteers to help organize both the morning of the Race as well as the days before.  We will be sending home more information the week of May 17th. 

Be sure to share the Giving Zone link with your family and friends! Here is the link: https://www.givingzone.com/z/ssdkyNyJ5a/

Thank you all for your continued generosity and support. Looking forward to fun race days!
