Race for Education
The OLV 2017 Race for Education involved laps of teamwork for incoming and outgoing donations, as Race Day was also Service Day! Race for Ed is a development event that encompassed student sponsorship by community, family, and friends, in addition to student-made donated items.
This year the races took place outdoors on the school campus. The school hosted two race tracks from 9:30am-11:30am. Students pushed themselves to keep walking or running the tracks, while those that were not running during that race period cheered on their peers. Simultaneous with the event time, students either raced or worked on painting rocks for our rock garden out by the playground.
Before the race, students worked in their homerooms on a service project creating holiday cards for The Little Sisters of the Poor.
The community supported the students' efforts as event spectators and sponsors! From event donations of snacks and materials, to volunteering time to monitor student safety. Our Lady of Victory was very fortunate to have assistance making this a fun day for the boys and girls of the school. The fundraising goal was $10,000 and the school's donation thermometer is already well on its way to $9,000 raised! A pizza party will be awarded to the two homerooms with the highest sponsorship.
