BlueModus donates $1,000 to Local School Fundraiser
Posted by BlueModus News on May 29, 2015
In support of local education, BlueModus® has donated $1,000 this May to a Colorado school, Our Lady Help of Christians Academy (OLHCA), as part of its monthly Give Back campaign. The money was donated towards the school's largest yearly fundraiser, the Eighth Annual Jog-a-thon.
All students worked to gather per-lap pledges and one-time donations prior to the event. Then, on May 21st, 2015, they ran as many 1/8 mile laps as they could in one hour, raising more money with each lap they completed.
Proceeds from past Jog-a-thons have helped OLHCA build more classroom space, a playground, and a basketball and a volleyball court to accommodate the continued growth of the school. Donations also help cover school expenses and provide tuition assistance to families in need. Last year's total funds raised were over $94,000; If the school is able to top $100,000 this year, their goal is to replace a large dirt field with a field of artificial turf for students to play on.
