We did it! A big thank you to everyone who helped OLG meet its Marathon goal this year! Through marathon donations brought in by students, financial gifts from parishioners during marathon weekend, and proceeds from the pancake breakfast, we collected more than $114,000 that will be used to fund OLG's Groves Reading Program, the Design for Learning Project (new furnishings), and support our technology needs. In addition, we donated much needed items to the Ronald McDonald House, Simpson Housing Services, Sharing and Caring Hands, and Children's Hospital Minnesota.
Marathon, OLG’s biggest fundraiser, officially kicked off on September 21st with an all-school pep fest! We celebrated our theme, Dancing with the OLG Stars. Check out photos from that fun event here. We wrapped up with a community celebration of our success on the OLG Fields on October 6th.
Thank you to all who volunteered, attended, and contributed to our celebration. And a HUGE THANK YOU to Leah Olson, Alyssa Pankratz and Katie Mork for chairing this year's Marathon! We are grateful to be part of such a generous community.
