The Academy of Notre Dame de Namur will dedicate its new, state-of-the-art athletic fields and Launfal Field House, and host its eighth annual Sunflower Run, on Saturday, April 25. The event is open to the public.
The academy’s new six-lane track, two turf fields, new softball diamond and renovated field house will be blessed at 9 a.m. The project completes the first stage of the school’s transformation to enhance all aspects of the students’ experience.
The Sunflower Run is a 5K run/2K walk open to the community, starting at 9:45 a.m. The cost is $25 per person or $60 for a family of three or more. Children under 10 are free. For the first time the run will be held at the academy’s campus. To register, visit www.ndapa.org/sunflower.
Immediately following, from 10 a.m. to noon, the Family Fun Day will feature food, family-oriented activities, moon bounces, face painting and more.
The independent Catholic academy in Villanova educates 510 young women in grades 6 through 12.
Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
