It is with great enthusiasm I bring to you the information and opportunity to support the 2019 James Burdon Ambassador 5K Run/Walk. As you know, this event was organized by a group of alumni from the 1980s. It was through our children and school community a relationship was developed over the years and their commitment – along with several alumni from other decades who have jumped on board – this initiative has blossomed.
We are committed to the growth and wellness of the St. Vincent-St. Mary and Akron communities. All funds raised through the James Burdon Ambassador 5K Run/Walk will be allocated to initiatives, new and current, to help facilitate the needs of students and their families. Proceeds from the 2018 and 2109 events will fund the new STVM College and Career Resource Center. The Center will serve as a multi-purpose area for students, families, and the school administration and staff. It will provide college and career research and guidance, house video production staging, and will be open for group activities and administrative meetings.
