St. Anselm School, Philadelphia, will hold its 10th annual Race for Education on Friday, April 29 at 1 p.m. on the school grounds located at 12650 Dunks Ferry Road in Northeast Philadelphia.
Proceeds from the race will be used to purchase items for the school’s play yard and for other essential educational needs. Students will walk a quarter-mile area around the school for one hour and each classroom will individually perform student- and teacher-written cheers.
The Race for Education is St. Anselm School’s biggest fund raiser of the year. Students solicit donations from friends and family for months before the event. In the past, funds raised from the race have been used to purchase iPads and laptop computers.
“St. Anselm School strives to provide a superior educational experience for our students, and fundraisers like the Race for Education provide us with the funds to purchase the best technology and equipment available,” said Geraldine Murphy, principal of St. Anselm School. “All donations and support are greatly appreciated by the faculty, staff, students and parents at St. Anselm School.”

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.
