It’s almost here… Crow Island Run-a-thon

New This Year!

For the first time ever, a portion of this year’s proceeds will also benefit the Misericordia Special Olympics Track & Field Team – an opportunity for us to reach beyond our school and support our community. Special Olympics is the world’s largest sports organization for people with intellectual disabilities. When you give, you contribute the equipment, athletic attire, and health supplies that can transform an athletes life.

Members of Misericordia Special Olympics team will attend the Run-a-thon to cheer on our students!!

A runner’s expo will be held during the school day on 10/5 from 1:30 -3:00 pm. Students will have the opportunity to submit their donation forms and receive additional race material.

All children will be given a t-shirt designed for the run-a-thon, courtesy of the PTO.

Please make sure that your child is dressed according to the weather. If there is rain in the morning, we will attempt to push back the event to the afternoon. If there are any changes to the schedule due to weather an email blast notifying you of the change will be sent by 8:15 am October 6th.
