More than 260 St. Rita Catholic School students will participate in the Race for Education fundraiser this Friday.
The event will take place from 12:30-2:30 p.m. at St. Rita Catholic School, 6284 Valley Knoll Drive.
Students can raise money for continued support and enhancement of the technology program by gathering sponsors who make donations for the race.
Those participating will walk or jog around a designated area with the pre-K through 3rd graders going from 12:30-1:15 p.m. and 4th – 8th graders going from 1:30-2:30 p.m.
In addition to students, teachers, staff, parents and community members will also be participating in the event.
“Students really enjoy having the opportunity to make a contribution to their school and they get to do it in a fun way,” says Patrick Flanagan, Principal, St. Rita Catholic School.
