To raise money for Upper Merion Area Educational Foundation - UMAEF’s mission is to enhance the quality of education in the Upper Merion Area School District (four elementary schools, one middle school and one high school) through programs funded by nonpublic support. Our focus is to encourage excellence and innovation at the faculty level by offering mini-grants to supplement and complement basic educational programs in the areas of Technology, Arts, Scholastic Enhancement and Cultural Enrichment. All of the proceeds from our Viking 5K & Fun Run/Walk go directly to fund the various projects that the Foundation awards each year. UMAEF welcomes athletes of all abilities to participate!
