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.
