On Saturday, March 24, we hosted our largest ever 5K event with a total of 500 runners participating! It was wonderful to see so many school families, past and present, as well as individuals from the surrounding community so generously supporting the cause and rallying to honor Michael Munsell and his family.
We were delighted to welcome Vice Mayor Sheryl Bass, U.S. Congresswoman Barbara Comstock & Council Member Marc Aveni, who joined us to show their support for Michael and our school community.
Such a large-scale event would not have been possible without a strong team of volunteers. We wish to thank our Race Co-Chairs, Mrs. Joan Coleman and Mrs. Sue Haggerty, and the following parents who served on the committee: Mrs. Kate Cooney, Mrs. Jeanine Fehrman, Mrs. Tasha Nelson, Mr. Joe Ortiz, Mrs. Chrissie Vazquez, Mrs. Caeli Volk, Mrs. Cathy Munsell, and Mrs. Rebecca Webb. Through their efforts, they ensured a well-organized and safe event for the many who participated. Thank you, as well, to the many volunteers who donated items and to those who helped throughout the race weekend.
We also want to extend a word of appreciation to Mr. Raf Perez who managed the sound and served as our DJ and to Mrs. Amy Godeaux who sang the National Anthem during our opening ceremony. We thank Mrs. Myra Hayde of our Maintenance Team for leading the pack on her scooter and, of course, Fr. Noah for his support and participation. From start to finish, it was a great celebration of the goodness and strength of our community and an occasion that the Munsells will long remember.
Thank you to our Running with the Saints 5K Sponsors!
