Get Ready for Race for Education, 2018!
Wednesday, April 25th in Hunting Park
On April 25th, our entire school will be participating in our 13th Annual Race for Education. Last year, we raised over $44,000 (our best ever!) to replace our classroom doors. This year, proceeds will go toward our scholarship fund, helping parents afford an excellent education for their children.
The Race for Education will take place in Hunting Park at Team Vick Field. Students, staff, and Special Runners will walk or jog around a 1/4 mile track for one hour. Here are the Race Times:
Pre-K, K, and 1st Grade: 9:30 am - 10:30 am
5th through 8th Grades: 10:50 am - 11:50 am
2nd through 4th Grades: 12:45 pm - 1:45 pm
Special Runner Information
WHAT do I have to do?
It's easy to be a Special Runner! Simply ask friends and family to sponsor you with a tax-deductible donation, or you can sponsor yourselt with a flat donation. Then, commit to walking, jogging, or running for one hour. If you can join us during our Race for Education on Wednesday, April 25th, that would be great! If you are unable to make it on that date, feel free to find a place to run, walk, or jog for one hour when it's convenient to you.
WHO can be a Special Runner?
A Special Runner is anyone who is not an HPCA student but would like to participate in raising funds for HPCA by walking or jogging for one hour. Since 2006, Special Runners have raised over $60,000 for HPCA! It's a very tangible way to show support to our students. You absolutely do not have to be "a runner." You can walk, jog, or run at your own pace. You can also join as an individual, with a friend, or create a team. You can even be a church representative and have your church sponsor you.
