A VIRTUAL 5K RUN/WALK AND 1-MILE FAMILY FUN RUN TO SUPPORT THE UPPER MERION AREA EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION
The Upper Merion Area Educational Foundation (UMAEF) is committed to the continuing advancement of public education in the Upper Merion Area School District, by providing funds for educational programs and activities through engagement and collaboration with parents, school staff, businesses, and community members, so that every child is given the opportunity to thrive in a rigorous, engaging, and dynamic environment.
The annual Viking 5K and 1 Mile Family Fun Run/Walk is our major fundraising event in our effort to generate independent funding and developing community partnerships to recognize and encourage student and staff innovation and excellence. All proceeds raised will be used to fund the teacher-initiated projects that benefit the students of all seven schools in the district.
WHAT IS A VIRTUAL RUN/WALK?
A Virtual Run is a 5K that can be completed in your own neighborhood, at a local park, or even on the treadmill. Sign up, gather some friends, decide on a route, and get out and move! The best part is, you'll know that each step you take is helping students and teachers in the Upper Merion Area School District!
