Our Lady of Victory School students participated in the Marathon for Non-Public Education on Friday Oct. 4.

During the marathon, the kids ran, jogged, walked and biked around the block surrounding the school and church.

Also as part of the marathon, kids participated in reading activities and enjoyed a special snack.

OLV has been participating in the marathon for 30-plus years and has always had great support from the community. Each student was asked to collect donations or sponsorships for their participation in the marathon in order to meet the school’s goal of $9,000.

All money that is donated is kept at the school to be used for special projects.
