Fun Run -November 4

Each fall we put together a fun run in the field behind St. Ambrose School as a way to:  bring together students, parents and teachers for some outdoor fun and games; teach our children about the value of good exercise and healthy eating; and raise much-needed funds for our wonderful school.

The 2016 run will take place on November 4th.   All students participate, whether or not they have any pledges. Students will  run/walk 1/4 mile laps, support their fellow classmates, use their pledge form to collect money for the school, and have a ton of fun!
