St. Raymond Jogs for Technnology

Original post made by Gayelyn, Menlo Park: Central Menlo Park, on May 9, 2007

Menlo Park's St. Raymond School held its 10th annual Jogathon at its campus on Santa Cruz Avenue on April 27. Over 250 students from grades K-8 participated in the fundraiser and together jogged over 500 miles.
Each mile was sponsored by family and friends as well as many small community businesses, such as Dr. Scott Kaloust, D.D.S., Angelo Mio restaurant, Quizno's Subs, the Menlo Park Police Department and the Redwood City Parks and Recreation Department.
The students competed for prizes for the most money raised and class participation. They also competed for awards for those who ran the most laps and in the best time. The San Jose Shark's mascot "Sharkie" paid a special surprise visit, which added extra motivation and lots of laughs for the students.
This annual event raised over $30,000 for the Schools Computer and Technology Programs. New equipment will include more laptop computers, new printers and educational software.
"This is an important fundraiser and a spirit-builder," said the school's principal, Sister Ann Bernard. "It reinforces the already strong parent community at St. Raymond School, a characteristic of our school."
St. Raymond School has served the local area for 53 years and has maintained a reputation for strong studies and excellence in sports. This year three of the school's boys basketball teams were league champions. For more information about St. Raymond School, go to Web Link .
