A Walk-A-Mile for Education fund-raiser is planned for Saturday, June 25 from 1-3 p.m. at the Perryville Bike Path (at the corner of Trainer and Garrett Lane). Proceeds will go toward purchasing supplies and new equipment for the students at Iqra School. Students, families, friends and the community at large will be taking pledges for every mile walked. The walker with the most pledges will receive a grand prize. Refreshments will be served and door prizes will be given away.
Rockford Iqra School is at the corner of Mulford and Harrison. The school was established in 1998 and serves pre-school through 8th grades. RIS is a private school for approximately 85 Muslim students from northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin. Iqra School ranked high on the PSAT Illinois test scores.
