Eat Pray Run 2018 Update

A big congratulations to this year’s winner of the t-shirt design contest, David Frey!


Sunday, April 22nd was a great day for the All Saints Academy community! Our annual Eat Pray Run event began at St. Jude for our final “Pack the Pews” of the year. After donuts in the Brophy Center, the group headed to the Elementary Campus for running and eating portion of Eat Pray Run! For those who have never attended, Eat Pray Run is a family friendly event that includes a 5K race and fun run for our younger students, as well as a picnic lunch to enjoy with friends and families. It is one of two major fundraisers for our school community with this one focusing on tuition assistance for ASA families!

We were blessed with gorgeous weather, great times with friends, and a successful event! An incredible 191 runners registered, with participation split almost evenly between the 5K and the Fun Run. 106 of our ASA students registered to run!

The Middle School band kicked off the event by playing the National Anthem, and then the runners for the 5K took their marks.

The 5K run was won by Brandon James, with a time of 18 minutes and 32 seconds!

We are so happy with how many families joined us for Eat Pray Run and are looking forward to next year’s event!

A $500 tuition credit was awarded to the Malinzak family; Max (1st grade) and Poppy (Kindergarten) tied for the most money raised for the Tuition Angels program.  Another $500 tuition credit was awarded to the student who received the most donations, Cameron Pierson (1st grade)!

A total of $10,560 was raised through pledges and registration.  These dollars will help fund our Tuition Angels program so that a Catholic education at All Saints Academy is accessible to any family who desires it!
