Mercy Monarch 5K

September 28, 2020
By Sarah Paladino

The new fashion statement for students at Mercy High School just might be a blue and gold tutu.  That is the top prize for raising $400 or more in this fall’s Mercy Monarch 5k to raise money for the school’s negotiated tuition assistance program. 

This new, socially distant fundraiser gives students the chance to safely participate from their own neighborhoods, running trails, parks or treadmills. Students will walk or run 5K (3.12 miles) any time during the month of October.  Alumnae are also invited to join the fun to help raise money. Participants will have the chance to unlock a variety of prizes based on the amount of money they raise. 
 
Dates:
Participants can complete the 5K any time between October 1 and October 31 and donations are due at the end of October. 
 
How to Donate:
Family, friends, neighbors, alumnae and others can donate under a specific student’s name or on their own on the Mercy website at https://www.mercyhigh.org/happenings/mercy-monarch-5k.cfm.
 
Money Raised:
Every student is expected to raise $200 profit through the Mercy Monarch 5K or the spring plant sale or through personal donations.  This is one of two student fundraisers sponsored annually to help students participate in funding Mercy High School’s educational programs.  

Prizes:
Raise $200 in donations to receive a Mercy High scrunchie
Raise $300 in donations to receive a 5K t-shirt
Raise $400 in donations and receive a blue and gold tutu
