WE RUN IN MEMORY OF ERICA – This year, the St. Linus Turkey Trot will be run in memory of Erica Heilmann. Fellow school families, parishioners, and beyond have been honored to have witnessed and been touched by Erica’s volunteerism and unwavering dedication to our children as well as St. Linus School and Parish as a whole. The run will be accompanied by an annual 7th grade essay on altruism and serving the community to which the most regarded essay will be rewarded a contribution toward tuition.
ABOUT THE PROCEEDS – The money raised from our past Annual Turkey Trots supported our Chromebook initiative. Our students and the teachers have used this technology to individualize instruction and enhance each student’s overall education across various subjects. This year’s added funding will help us continue to provide additional Chromebooks and the necessary software programs for our students. We are so grateful to all of you for your support of St. Linus School through this event!
ABOUT THE SPONSORS – We value our local vendors, small businesses, and corporate donors and individual sponsors. Your contributions help us build our community and financially support our children’s technology. We promise to commit ourselves toward building a working relationship with our sponsors, and offering them exposure to an audience of nearly 1,000 participants. THANK YOU!
IT’S A GREAT DAY TO BE A HAWK!!!
