Race for Education – September 30

Each year our Race for Education is our “kick off” fundraising event that is instrumental in providing a quality education for children at Shalom Christian Academy. Race for Education funds are used to purchase curriculum materials and other race3essential needs. Last year 100% of our students participated in this important annual event and we are currently processing more than 10.000 mailers from Shalom and Growing Tree Preschool students for this year.


At the event, students walk or jog around a 1/8 or ¼ mile area as many times as possible in a 1-hour period. Each student has raised funds by asking sponsors to contribute a tax-deductible gift based on the laps completed (i.e. $1.00 per lap) or a flat donation.


Friends and family are welcome to be a part of this great fundraising event through sponsorship and coming to the event to cheer on their favorite runners/walkers!
