SMA Fun Run
Together We Can Make Our School Stronger
Welcome to our first St. Michael's Fun Run! We are excited to bring our first inaugural fundraising fun run. Designed to help curate a healthy lifestyle for all ages, our community looks forward to building a stronger tomorrow starting today. The St. Michael School Fund is essential to support our students and community needs. This fuels elevating curriculum, advancing technology, and upkeep of building facilities. We aim to build community bonds, promote an active lifestyle, and raise $16,000 for our school. 
We have raised over $15,000 so far. It is not too late to donate! If you would like to make a donation, please visit:
