What is the LFS Patriot Day 5K?
This year, Little Flower School will be hosting the first annual “LFS Patriot Day 5K” on September 9, 2017. We are very excited about this community event and LFS fundraiser! At Little Flower School, our commitment to the growth of the whole child is achieved through a focus on our core values: faith, knowledge, and service. This event will complement our environment that encourages service to each other, our school, and especially to our community.
Each year, this event will be held on the Saturday preceding Patriot Day, September 11, to honor our local “patriots” to include military, firefighters, police officers, and emergency medical technicians. Participants in the 5K can run or walk, and children 10 & under are invited to participate in our Kids’ Run on the school grounds.
In addition to the 5K and Kids’ Run, participants can nominate their “Patriot of the Year,” who will be selected by our LFS middle school students and recognized at the opening ceremony. Ten percent of the event’s proceeds will be donated to the service organization of the selected Patriot of the Year’s choice.
How is your donation going to be used?
Cash donations are needed to cover the expenses of race timing (~$2,400) and participant t-shirts (~$2,000), and post-race refreshments such as bottled water, bananas, and bagels for participants.
